In addition to a full-service marina, Temple Bar offers lake-view lodging, convenient RV parking with full hook-ups, an on-site convenience store/gift shop, seasonal cafe, and a launch ramp.
The area around Temple Bar Marina is especially well known for two things: the massive rock formation that gave the area its name and its 20 mile-long unobstructed water-ski runs that have every water sports enthusiast rushing to grab a rope! Temple Bar Marina has all the fun and amenities that you’d expect from Lake Mead.
