Desert Shores Community Information

A Desert Oasis...

Desert Shores was built beautifully around five interconnected man-made lakes, which are stocked with fish annually and can accommodate rowboats, sculls, and electric boats. Some lake frontage homes have their own small docks. At the center of Desert Shores is the "lagoon," a large shallow pool with a sandy, man-made beach with nearby basketball courts, volleyball courts, and picnic facilities. The Desert Shores Racquet Club offers tennis amongst townhouses, some with lake frontage.


The Clark County School district provides quality education to the public with its high-tech facilities and the latest technologies. Higher education is conveniently close with choices like the Clark County Community College, the Community College of Southern Nevada, and the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV).
