The boating facilities on Lake Powell was an absolute wonder in scenery, water activities . Little to dislike.

We rented a boat in Wahweap Marina and had a great time out on Lake Powell. You can jetski, waterski, tube or fish. Or in our case just sight see in a speed boat. It is an expensive rental but fun.

This is our second time here and love it! Just wish they made it easier to get to the "beaches". as it is a long walk in the hot sun!

Our family (10 and 13 year olds) enjoyed taking a beautiful hike around this area. We climbed rock formations, saw hanging ferns, and just enjoyed some peace and quiet. We were only there with one other family and it was just magnificent. We aren't experienced hikers, so anyone can do this trail. We went early in the morning and were... More

The boat rides on Glen Canyon is a truly spectacular and provides some awesome views. We took the 90 mins long boat trip and the views were simply awesome. Its like 20 minutes drive from Page, AZ. A nice day long itinerary will be to complete the HorseShoe Bend, Upper and Lower Canyons in the morning time and have a... More

We kayaked near Lone Rock out of Wahweap. Very nice kayaking in the side canyons. The beach at Lone Rock is lots of sand and a pretty steep bank along most of it. Beware of afternoon winds if you are across the lake.

Nice place to visit if you have some time. Helps gain a bit of insight into the building of the dam and the bridge. It was quite a feat at the time and its impressive to see the workforce and effort that it took to build this dam. There are some ancient fossils to see and they have a really... More

We took a boat trip to Antelope Canyon for hour and a half. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous, we enjoyed the trip very much. A tip: you must be among the first to board the boat in order to have a seat on the upper desk (we were happy to be in the beginning of the line). Otherwise you will... More
