Lake Powell is A-MAZ-ING. What a trip. It was challenging; it tested us physically (we are not young!!), mentally, emotionally....every way possible. But it was the best vacation EVER. As first time houseboat renters, we were not totally prepared for the monsoon we endured, but we survived it by using our wits and were rewarded by the best rainbow ever,... More

We all know of the amazing beauty and activities that can be found in Lake Powell but what do you do when the sun goes down and your still looking to continue your day? The wife and I after having dinner in Page found this wonderful little play house in town called the Lake Powell Play House. We found the... More

The view is amazing, the water was just good. The beach is okay to spend some great time under the sun ! You could maybe not see a second place like there in the world !

Stopped here while in route to the state line of Arizona/Utah. Got to view the dam for free (from the inside) and saw most of the museum. Next time would plan on a guided tour.

We rented a Houseboat from Wahweap Rentals and it exceeded our expectations in every way. All of the staff at the Marina were very helpful in planning our 4 day trip. I am passing on my Houseboat Wisdom in hopes that you will have the same GREAT experience: We rented the 46' Expedition and it was perfect for (4) guests.... More

Spent my 25th annual houseboat week on LP- leaving Wahweap marina in early June. Lake water level rose almost 3 feet during the week- requiring daily anchor line tightening. Still one of the world's most beautiful places: like being in the bottom of the Grand Canyon-- but on a nice house boat with all the amenities of home. Although water... More

My 14 year old daughter and I had a wonderful two hour trek with Sara. My daughter does a lot of riding and I ride once a year on holiday, but both of us were matched with lovely horses which have been highly trained by Sara. The pre-trek info and trial in the corral was very useful. Then out on... More

We rented a powerboat for one day on the lake for a total cost of about $500. It was very much worth it, as this was one of the best days I've ever had. The canyons on this lake are amazing beyond belief. Jaw dropping surprises with every twist and turn. The kids had a great time and the nine-year-old... More

We cruised the lake in our 48' Navigator! We took that thing everywhere. We were on the lake for a week. Absolutely beautiful sites! Our only frustration was trying to find a sandy beach to anchor. They made it seem as though there would be sandy beaches everywhere. Not true! We spent a lot of time searching for sandy beaches,... More

We've been to Lake Powell several times and it's the most amazing lake. The Grand Canyon of Lakes!! We rented the 48' Navigator houseboat and had family and friends and generally had a wonderful time. Unfortunately, you pay 5 star prices (about $850/night + gas & that's a discounted price!) for a houseboat and expect it to be 5 star... More
