We rented a houseboat and spent a week on Lake Powell. The scenery is breathtaking! And there is so much to do and see in the Page area, including Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, the Powell museum, and the dam visitor center. While we are glad we came, I will never do a houseboat there again. If we go back, we... More

If you visit , do the boat trip (book in advance)....it's a must...and the tour guide is very informative. Like much of Arizona the scenery is strange and wonderful. Yes, so much so, that it was chosen as the location for the original Planet of the Apes film. There is a visitors centre , of course .There are picnic areas....benches/toilets....nothing... More

My fiance and I went here on our honeymoon. The admission was $15. There is a nice beach but it is mostly filled with campers and RVs. There are other places to swim in a water filled canyon along the shoreline though.

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
