Telephone Cove Boondocking

Sunday we left Lake Mead after a 4 week social marathon.

This week we’re camping right outside of Laughlin, Nevada. We considered returning to the River Palms, but instead decided to check out Telephone Cove.

Telephone Cove is located 4.5 miles down a dirt road off of Laughlin Highway 163. The dirt road can be a little steep in some areas and is pretty rutted, though it wasn’t bad enough to stop a motor home and a few fifth wheels from going down it.


You can’t really tell from the main photo, but we’ve got a great view of the water.

Cell is good (great with a booster) and we can watch CBS in the morning on over-the-air HDTV which makes me happy.

Dinner Last Night:
A Feel Good Lunch Bowl. I find it funny that this recipe is called a “lunch bowl” since it was actually quite a bit of work and I never have much time to actually cook at lunch. It was super tasty and made a lot of left-overs. Maybe now that it’s left-overs the name will be more accurate.
