Lake Las Vegas is located in Henderson, Nevada. Lake Las Vegas refers to both a man made 320-acre (1.3 km2) lake and to the 3,592-acre (14.5 km2) area built around the lake. The area is sometimes referred to as the Lake Las Vegas Resort. Lake Las Vegas is being developed by 5 companies including ‘Lake at Las Vegas Joint Venture LLC’.

The area includes several hotels and casinos including the MonteLago Village Resort, the Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort (formerly the Hyatt Regency), The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas, and Casino Monte Lago.

The dam that creates the lake is an earthen structure 18 stories high, 4,800 feet in length and 716 feet wide at its base. It contains roughly the same amount of dirt as Hoover Dam does concrete. The dam was completed in 1991. The Las Vegas Wash passes under the lake and dam in pipes that require maintenance every 10 years.
