It is worth the money to enter the park the views of the lake are good. If sailing and boating are your scene then you will be in your element on Lake Powell

A trip down the Colorado River should not be missed in your visit to the Grand Canyon area. While this trip is on smooth water before entering the Grand Canyon it was still one of the highlights to a great trip to Arizona. our guide Brad was very knowledgable about the river and the history of the area including John...

Just spectacular. The water is crystal clear. It's also cold... 47 most of the time, but refreshing during the hot, sunny part of the day. Everything about this is breathtaking. The view on the approach are just the teaser. We chose to explore with Colorado Rafting folks, a really nice way to view the canyon walls in changing light.

Nice place to get out and visit for about an hour. We did not have reservations, which would have been an added bonus. They give guided tours of the Glen Canyon Dam. Great views of the dam.

We rented a houseboat and spent a week on Lake Powell. The scenery is breathtaking! And there is so much to do and see in the Page area, including Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, the Powell museum, and the dam visitor center. While we are glad we came, I will never do a houseboat there again. If we go back, we... More

If you visit , do the boat trip (book in advance)....it's a must...and the tour guide is very informative. Like much of Arizona the scenery is strange and wonderful. Yes, so much so, that it was chosen as the location for the original Planet of the Apes film. There is a visitors centre , of course .There are picnic areas....benches/toilets....nothing... More

My fiance and I went here on our honeymoon. The admission was $15. There is a nice beach but it is mostly filled with campers and RVs. There are other places to swim in a water filled canyon along the shoreline though.
