We had no trouble driving right down to the beach, even in our old rear-wheel drive station wagon. Just follow the main tracks, or wait for another non-4x4 car to drive down and follow them. Otherwise it's an awfully long and hot walk down from the parking lot. In the middle of August, there were plenty of people (lots of... More

Have a stroll along to see where River Song (the astronaut) Killed the doctor on the edge of lake Silencio. Lovely beach and great views over Lake Powell.

Been there already two years ago, was one of the most impressive spots on my california trip. Now I went there again on a trip across the states. Absolutely love this place. Started a bit stupid: despite we drove a Chevy Tahoe we got stuck in the sand. Other campers helped us with letting pressure out of the tires and... More

This beautiful soft sand beach on Lake Powell is part of the National Park system. We paid $15 to get in. We were driving a car and were warned we could get stuck driving down to the beach so we parked in the lot and walked to the water. It's a long walk, but we're used to long walks in... More

This was a last minute camping spot I found on a site listing it as a "free" campground. Though we paid $15 to enter park and another $10 to camp we were ultimately very happy with our experience! Sand was fine, white and soft. Lake was beautiful with the mountains in the background and the "lone rock" in the water.... More

WE went swimming here. The water has a lot of sediment in it so its not too clear and you may encounter tumbleweed in the shallows. The depth quickly drops off from the shoreline. Its pretty easy to get into the water but this area is definitely dominated by RV's and motorboats which can be a little intimidating when swimming.... More

Awesome views, perfect water temp, nice folks around. Know before you go~ if you are looking for serenity and absolute peace and quiet, you won't get it here, but by no means is it awful. Lots of RVs means generators, dogs, kids, etc, but it's not bad, and it is helpful if you get stuck in the sand. It is... More

If you want a place to camp near page, this is terrific. Peaceful falling asleep to the sound of the waves and lots of fun during the day! I went to Lone Rock Beach during my first camping weekend as an adult this past weekend (June 2014). The entrance fee for the day was $15 and the camping fee was... More

Lake Powell currently down by about 110 feet due to persistent drought in the west, so it is either a darn long walk to the water from the parking area, or a drive necessitating a four wheel drive vehicle through loose sand to get to the beach.

Would be one of the prettiest camping places ever, could be charging $50+ a night. Unfortunately there is zero supervision and this is party dump zone for rude locals. I set up camp, a group of rowdy college age kids rolled up in five cars all over my spot, parked within feet of my car. I asked what they were... More
