We had the Canyon adventure boat tour and that was great! The only thing to make it better would be to broadcast the captain comments in the headset so that we can hear them clear! Except than that, the tour is great! You visit Antelope Canyon and the Navajo Canyon, and after 3 hours, you come back to the Marina... More

Be sure not to miss the Glen Canyon Dam Tour. It is educational and interesting for all ages. Learning about this specific dam as well as the differences in other dams throughout our nation is enlightening! An up close and personal look at this amazing structure will leave you in awe!

This is a huge area surrounding Lake Powell. There are so many access points and areas to explore. Lots of beaches and hikes or just motoring past the striking canyon scenery in a boat. In a couple days we just got a little taste of it. The Dam and visitor's center are fascinating. Be sure to check it out. We... More

If you want a spot to relax and you are close to Page, stop there. The area is very nice and there is many things to do. If you like water it's a fun place, swimming, boat rides into the canyon, or just relax. A beautiful place to visit.

This is at the northeastern beginning of the Grand Canyon right below the dam for lake Powell. The views are breathtaking and if you have vertigo be advised to can stand on top of cliffs that literally a 90 degree drop of 1500 feet to the canyon floor and the Colorado river. A must visit if you are ever close... More

This is a beautiful place in the middle of the desert. There is so much to do, swim, walk, cruise, windsurf, jet ski,...and there are also many tours to do. The place is clean and well preserved. Don't miss it if you stay (even for just 1 night). Ideal if you plan to visit Antiloop Canyon and have spare time... More

Glen Canyon NRA / Lake Powell is the greatest vacation spot on earth. There is nowhere else like it. If you like boating, swimming, hiking, or just lounging in the sun, there is no better place in the Southwest.

Great lake. This is a beautiful oasis in the middle of the desert. However, you need to watch out for the boat rentals at the marina. They ended up charging us an extra $150 for the propeller. They said it was bent. The guy said it could've easily happened with the driftwood floating around in the lake. This seemed like... More

Visit the Carl T. Hayden Information Center which provides very interesting information about the history of this region and especially about the adventurers and scientists coming to explore the Grand Canyon looking for appropriate locations to build a dam. We loved the exhibition in the Visitor Centet and also the spectacular view over the dam, Lake Powell and the fascinating... More

This is quite a place with all the ascetics of the Grand Canyon and a lake with boating, swimming, camping, a resort, hiking, and fishing to boot. Anyone who enjoys the national parks will have a great time here.
