Family vacations are all about spending quality time together, and there’s no better place to make memories than on the water. Renting a houseboat is a unique way to make the most out of your time on the lake with your family.

At Cottonwood Cove, we believe that these are the best family lake vacation activities to enjoy while staying on a houseboat:


Fishing is a favorite activity among families who are renting a houseboat on Lake Mohave. This is because it is a favorite pastime of people of all ages, from young children who are eager to make their first catch to grandparents who want to show the new generation a thing or two about casting a line. When staying on a houseboat, you can fish during those early morning hours when the fish are biting or during the lingering evening hours when everyone else has docked on shore.


Of course, everyone likes to escape the heat of the afternoon sun by taking a dip in Lake Mohave. The clean, clear water makes for a perfect natural swimming pool.

Deckside Dining

Perhaps the best part about renting a houseboat for a family lake vacation is that you always have a 360-degree waterfront view. Family meals can be enjoyed on the deck while watching the sun set peacefully over the lake. This is the ideal time to reminisce about the day and to make plans for the next day’s waterfront activities.


Sometimes, a larger boat cannot get into the smaller alcoves and canals in the lake. Families who want to get an in-depth look at the formations surrounding Lake Mohave can kayak in the shallow depths.


While there’s plenty to do on the water, you also can take your family vacation to the shore when you rent a houseboat. Simply dock your boat and pack your family up for a day of hiking. There are many trails for hikers of all skill levels that wind around Lake Mohave.

When you rent a houseboat from Cottonwood Cove, you will find that there are plenty of activities for everyone who is traveling with you. Lake Mohave is a beautiful reservoir that does so much more than provide the region with much-needed fresh water. It provides families with a chance to escape from the stress of daily life and truly enjoy one another.
