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

The boat trip is wonderful as the docent was very knowledgeable and shared all that with us. However, if you stay at the Lake Powell Resort and Marina, do not expect good service at the resort. 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

I second the review from Moovis. We were first time houseboat renters but got extensive coaching from friends that were experienced. Fortunately we had 3 engineers on this trip as we had an abundance of problems with the equipment including finding ourselves adrift in the middle of the lake on our speedboat without a functioning radio! We survived it all... More

the location is awesome! the tours etc from the hotel are also quite good but the rooms were a bit dated and the quality of food at the 'fancy' restaurant was NOT worth the money! the pizza pub on the premises was fine..... it was really strange to have someone knock on our door at 9 a.m. for room service!...

Leaving Page and travelling over the suspension Bridge give a sense of awe at the engineering achievements people made in the evolution of America - take a trip through time - from Dinosaur tracks found during excavations and the story of the early pioneer boatmen who breached the fast flowing rivers to the construction of the hydro-electric dam to harness...

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 rented a Discovery XL houseboat and a 19' speedboat for our family vacation. The houseboat met all of our expectations - it was roomy, comfortable, and got us into beautiful Lake Powell. I do wish there were more deck cushions for sleeping on the upper deck, and there was a shortage of blankets for the cool nights in September.... 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.
