Lake Las Vegas is an artificial body of water located next to the House Resort (Camp Golf in 2281) and a marked location in Fallout: New Vegas.


The artificial lake was created in mid-20th century by damming the Las Vegas Wash that feeds excess water from the Las Vegas Valley into Lake Mead. The wash continues to flow into Lake Mead beneath the dam, feeding water into the lake. The New California Republic established the intake point for their water pipe network at the dam, drawing water from both Lakes and pumping it back towards the Las Vegas metropolitan area and the cisterns, as well as the NCR sharecropper farms and other strategic locations throughout the Valley. The pre-War pump stations are fully automated and filter the water for contaminants, starting with the east pump station.[1][2] which is the main food source for the NCR military in the Mojave Wasteland.


The lake has an oval shape, with various trash submerged on the bottom, including golf carts, shopping carts, tires, and other items that people tend to dump into lakes when nobody's looking. The only notable piece of loot is a Sunset Sarsaparilla crate southwest of the lake, on a green yard chair placed on top of a cliff.


Lake Las Vegas appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collector's Edition p.315: "[2.21] East Pump Station
    This location is of paramount importance to the NCR, because it is responsible for filtering the water being pumped along the giant water pipe from Lake Las Vegas [3.22], and then into the Sharecropper Farms [2.20]. There are actually two buildings: the East Cistern, and the facility itself, plus two nearby Manhole Covers allowing access into the sewers [U2]. Inside the cistern is a Water Tower Valve (allowing you to sip clean water), and a blown-out terminal with a Magazine next to it."

  2. Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collector's Edition p.365: "[3.22] Lake Las Vegas
    Dammed at its northeastern end by the NCR who have a sizable presence at the adjacent Camp Golf [3.23], this provides a good source of water for the Sharecropper Farms to the northwest, thanks to the snaking pipeline. The lake itself holds nothing but a few submerged golf carts, and other minor detritus, although there's Campfire to the east, at the Scenic Overlook [3.S17]."
