    Meadview is situated in northwest Arizona and is located on the Arizona side of Lake Mead, at the extreme western end of the Grand Canyon        National Park. Perched on the Grapevine Mesa, a high desert plateau  with elevations around 4,000', and above and just south of Lake Mead.
    Meadview has access to Lake Mead, the largest man-made lake in the United States.  
    There are stunning views of the Grand Wash Cliffs as high as 6,000' to the east and the distant glow of Las Vegas to the west. Meadview is a quite retirement community surrounded by Federal land belonging to both the Bureau of Land Management and the National Park Service.  The communities are of recent origin having been started around 1960 as a retirement community.
    Meadview  and Lake Mead City, are the communities in Arizona with access to Lake Mead and the Grand Canyon by personal watercraft, and vehicle.  It graces the eastern end of Lake Mead on an unspoiled plateau swept with Joshua Trees.  Meadview and Lake Mead City are in Mohave County and in the North Western area of Arizona, on the Western Rim of the Grand Canyon in the Mojave Desert Mountains which is also called "The Grapevine Mesa".  Meadview and Lake Mead City are small rural communities at elevations ranging from 3,100' to 3,800' nestled in an abundance of Joshua Trees, Yuccas, wildlife, goldmine sites, hiking and four-wheeling adventures while enjoying boating, fishing and picnic facilities.  A profusion of extraordinary sunsets of Lake Mead and the Grand Wash Cliffs, will make you want to stay an eternity.
    Springtime brings a dense covering of wild flowers providing vibrant splashes of every shade of color.  The Grapevine Mesa is home to a dense Joshua tree forest.  The sunsets, which paint the Grand Wash Cliffs in pink, mauve and then magenta, provide the perfect backdrop for a backyard cookout.
    There's gold to find, rock hounding, gold mines to visit, and swim in the clean water of Lake Mead.  We believe you will find Meadview and Lake Mead City really nice places to spend your time - we do our best to make you welcome with cafes, a gas station, RV Parks, motels, stores, etc.
    We will do our best to help you enjoy the beauties of the Grapevine Mesa area - the lake, the canyon, the hills, the wildlife, flocks of Quail, a swift roadrunner, lots of birds to watch, a chance sighting of bobcat, deer, badger, wild horses, a burro and desert big horn sheep all of whom are frequent visitors, and often a musical chorus each evening provided by our coyotes.  Something the city dweller never hears.
    Come visit us - you'll love it - and return time after time.
    Lake Mead Fishing/Boating/Water Skiing - 550 miles of breathtaking shoreline just waiting for you and your boat.
    Come fish the quiet coves of the lake, ski on the open waters, take your boat miles around the Lake into a different world.

2020 Census

by MCA Staff & Board of Governors on 08/31/19

Meadview has grown over the years. The dynamics have change considerably. According to the 2000 Census,  821 residents lived in Meadview. In the 2010 Census, the population increased by 403. It's amazing to have seen the changes to our little world out here over the years. The last few years there have been many new faces moving into town. Years ago, someone complained to me that there are too many new people moving into Meadview. Especially, younger people. My answer was, "If nobody else moved into Meadview, than Meadview would die with your generation."
The point is that we need new faces and families to move to Meadview, so that it can grow and be here for the next generation and the next. Meadview is a wonderful little community and we need to share it with everyone. Not everything will remain the same. Things will change with the new generations. We have taught our children to make the world their own and they will. 
I am curious to see what the new Census will be and to see the changes in population over the last 20 years. 
Check out the Census information for 2000 & 2010, and the difference between the two census'.
