The controversy of building a dam and ruining this pristine canyon will go on but a visit gives an appreciation of what a great area it is. We stayed at the Wahweap Campgrounds and it was amazing. Tent campsites all the way to full hook-ups for RV's. Well spaced sites and clean facilities. Friendly staff in the visitors center and... More

This place was clean and well maintained. However, the layout was such that you and your neighbor faced each other. The scenery was spectacular, however, and if you come for the beauty of the area and not just to hang around on your patio, you'll be fine. Also, having good neighbors helps.

We did a Dinner Cruise on Lake Powell about 5 years ago. We have also taken the boat ride to Rainbow Bridge twice, once in 2013 and again in April, 2015. The Dinner Cruise is good but I wouldn't do it again. It did whet our appetites for more views of the spectacular scenery on the lake though. The trip... More

Wahweap Marina has a great Brunch on Easter and the menu for daily use is very acceptable. The view is at least 180 degrees. Fantastic place.

Glen canyon was the 3rd dam we've had the opportunity to visit. Anything that has a National Park designation is worth the visit. Don't miss it!

Not as much fun as the other canyons. If you have a day or two, spend your fine in Antilope Canyon - it's more impressive and fun!

I remember decades ago the Glen Canyon waterways were extensive and deep reaching high up on the canyon walls. Not any longer. Much of Lake Powell has dried up and what used to be rambling beautiful deep blue waters is receding at an alarming rate due to the mega-drought in the West. Each time I am there the water is...

My family and I have been to Arizona before. This past spring we decided to add Glen Canyon Rec area to our trip. Good choice on our part. We went kayaking one afternoon on Lake Powell at the Antelope Point Marina. We actually tried to book with another company in town but they were closed when we arrived on time... More

Nice place. There is a small beach where you can enjoy with kids (if you have). If you are looking for cruise then you have a option and I must say you will enjoy ride. There are so many amazing views then you will like so make sure if you enough space in your camera to capture those moments. Enjoy!!!!
