Cal-Nev-Ari is a census-designated place and town in Clark County, Nevada, United States, near the state's southernmost point. As of the 2000 census, the town had a total population of 278. The town's name is a syllabic abbreviation of California, Nevada, and Arizona.

Cal-Nev-Ari was created in the mid 1960s by Nancy & Slim Kidwell, who acquired a 640-acre (2.6 km2) section of land from the U. S. Government and commenced development of an airport-based community. In addition to the FAA designated Kidwell Airport, the community has grown over the years to include a casino, motel, RV and mobile home parks, convenience market, and over 100 residential lots.

A consequence of the September 11th terrorist attacks is that trucks and motorhomes are no longer allowed to pass over Hoover Dam. As a result, they have now been routed down U.S. Route 95 and through Cal-Nev-Ari in order to get to Arizona.
