Stopped by for a few hours. The dam is HUGE!! The viewing area has nice facilities. If you paid you can also take a tour of the dam. Rock formations leading up to the dam were colorful. The bridge provides a nice view. If you're in Page, worth checking out.

We stopped in at the Visitor Center for a quick look. The displays were interesting, with comparisons between the Glen Canyon dam and other dams, including Hoover Dam.

We camped on the lake. Even if the fish are not cooperating, the stargazing is fantastic. We stayed in Oak Canyon and fished Oak Canyon, Anazasi Canyon, and Hidden Passage Canyon.

we tried to get down to the lake but they wanted a load of money and we just wanted to have a look at the water, maybe go to one of the restaurants. but the price to get into the area was ridiculous.

Very nice area with plenty to do outdoors. Lake is huge. Trails all over. Very hot in summer obviously, it's the desert.

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.
