Cottonwood Cove Developed Area, Cottonwood Cove Road, Cottonwood Cove, Clark County, NV
Significance: The Cottonwood Cove Developed Area was largely planned and built under the Mission 66 program; the Mission 66 Master Plan was the first master plan fully implemented in the recreation area. Development at Cottonwood Cove during Mission 66 transformed the site from a rustic fishing camp into a popular weekend destination as new facilities provided increased numbers of visitors with a broader range of recreational opportunities at Lake Mojave. The site contains all of the elements of a Mission 66 developed area, and provides an excellent example of development associated with Mission 66. Cottonwood Cove is the most intact Mission 66 developed area in Nevada.
