Pyramid Canyon is the canyon on the
Colorado River where
Davis Dam was built on the state line between Nevada and Arizona. The canyon is located on the Colorado River, between Cottonwood Valley on the north and the
Mohave Valley to the south. To the west of the canyon are the
Newberry Mountains, and to the east are the
Black Mountains of Arizona. Originally a deep canyon between the two ranges containing the free flowing Colorado River, Pyramid Canyon is now filled by the lower reach of
Lake Mohave a reservoir formed by Davis Dam.
