3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2015 NEW

We just stayed the weekend camping near Lone Rock Beach. We purposely set out to stay on the beach on recommendations on Trip Advisor, but once we arrived we saw that it is difficult to get down to the beach area without getting stuck-we were driving a 4WD Yukon and towing our 24' Pontoon. Not worth the risk of getting... More

Relaxing and beautiful Lake Powell beach. Our family enjoyed a late afternoon swim in the lake. Nice way to unwind after a day of sightseeing. There is a park entrance fee but we have a yearly National Park pass, which I highly recommend when touring the west. Be sure your vehicle is able to drive through the sand. We had... More

Went here to play some soccer on the beach and have swim. The water was really cold (of course in April) and there were some thorns on the beach, which was not a problem whenever you looked up after stepping on one. Beautiful scenery. Lots of rv's parked here for the day, which seemed understandable because it's a great place... More

Nice place! Easy to find. I wouldn't drive more than 20 min. To see it though. But the memories there would defiantly be nice

The site is good for camping and beach activities. Regarding to the view, the lone rock looks interesting but not as gorgeous as other places in along the Lake Powell.

Due to my friends and my procrastination, we didn't get to the lone rock campground until quite late (3am). It was however contrary to what many folks say, super easy to find. They also have a convenient pay station for after hours folks like us where you can pay for entrance fee and camping by card. Bc it was dark... More

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
