We stopped at the overlook and then came to the visitor center. It was a nice center with many displays and great views of the dam and lake. Unfortunately, we could not take the dam tour because the elevator down to where the turbines were was not working...that was disappointing.

I did my first half marathon here which took us into this beautiful park for most of the route. The views of the water, the rock formations, the dam, and the cliffs were mesmerizing. Running the race was the perfect opportunity to see these sites first hand and on foot for that matter. I would recommend seeing this park by... More

We spent three beautiful winter days kayak touring a very small part of Lake Powell. We paddled about 30 miles over 3 days, February 6th through February 8th.

Don't forget to bring your boat otherwise it'll be extremely depressing and you'll just want to cry. Rent a houseboat!

We did a rafting tour in this area and all I could say is there are no words to describe this. Breathtaking, awesome views, stunning, Towering canyon walls and ancient petroglyphs. Water was very cold but so worth it to go swimming in. The water was calm not like a rough rafting, enjoyable floating trip.

We liked the natural beauty and the location is very accessible from Page, but there was a heap of commercial operations, mostly boat related, which I suppose is very convenient in summer but not quite what I expected from a park.

just passing through but had to stop and take a look, great views of the canyon not 100% sure what else is offered in the area but don't think its fully exploited the tourist trade passing through as us and many others just wandering about taking photos.

this is a large recreational area. This is a place where the blue lake water surrounded by red rocks. you can visit Lake Powell, Glen Canyon Dam, Canyon Bridge, or take a boat tour to Rainbow Bridge.
