I was shocked at my first visit to Lake Powell. Rather than the beautiful blue waters surrounding the red rocks of Northern Arizona, Lake Powell is mostly a small grey river having lost a shocking 110 feet over the last many years due to drought in the West. In visiting the Antelope Point Marina, we were told the lake used... More

Well a friend once said to me that this was her favorite place 'on earth'. This is someone who has travelled some. So after a comment like that I had to add it to the 'bucket list' and see for myself. You should go at some point in your lifetime if at all possible.

Has a great view. Reminded me of Pangong Tso (Ladakh, J&K, India). The water looks blue and the red canyons surrounding this presents a spectacular view for the visitors. Spend some time in the tranquility of the surroundings and then you can walk around to enjoy the beauty.

It is a "not natural" lake, but still very exceptional.... a dreamland of rocks and water you will never forget.... a must for your visit in the various other "national parks" all around...

We had the best time spending all day on the water and the beach. The water was calm and warm. The scenery was so beautiful,

After many promptings from a special friend, the "king of fun", our family took his advice and traveled from SE Iowa, our 9 passenger Moriah boat in tow, to the magnificently unique Lake Powell. We rented a houseboat for 3 days, and explored the many wonders in and around this huge body of water surrounded by desert and incredibly beautiful... More

My review is just based on a scenic drive and short stop at Lake Powell in late October. We had some extra time in Page so visited Lake Powell. We were actually planning to do the Agua Tierra Trail that starts at Lake Powell Lodge but it wasn't right along the lake as I had imagined/hoped (or we couldn't find... More

We stayed 2 nites. Our rooms were not ready when we got there at 3pm. nor were they cleaned when we returned the next... More
