The 'North Shore Road' also known as Nevada Highway 159 and extends from the 'Henderson' intersection up the Valley of Fire intersection with Nevada Highway 169.
Callville Bay
This 45 plus mile section of Lake Mead NRA is one of the most scenic rides in Southern Nevada. Along the way there are three marinas, Callville Bay, Echo Bay and Overton Beach and three other notable stops, Redstone, Rogers Spring and Blue Spring. Each of these places have outdoor restroom facilities of some kind.

The most interesting stop along the way is at Rogers Spring where there are also picnic tables.

The landscape is the main attraction along this ride because it shows textbook examples of exposed geological formations.

What makes this place so interesting is the stark contrasts in topography, color, geology, vistas and much more.

Along the way is are three of Lake Meads marinas.

Callville Bay Marina, Echo Bay Marina, and Overton Beach Marina. If you are coming from Las Vegas, it is suggested that you either continue on through the Valley of Fire or drive through to Overton, Logandale and Mesquite.


At the 12.5 MM (mile marker), we see red sandstone outcroppings eroded out of twisted and turned layers of ancient rock.
