Beyond the town of Doland Springs the road climbs into the White Hills and then across the Hualapai Valley as you enter one of the largest stands of Joshua trees you will ever encounter. At South Cove there is a picnic area with covered picnic tables, grills and stone outhouses, and a boat launch. This cove is located in the middle of an area of Lake Mead known as the Gregg Basin and has some of the best water at the east end of Lake Mead. Glass conditions are almost guaranteed in the morning and expected in the late afternoon due to its protection from the surrounding mountains.
