When coming from moab we decided to take a left after Natural Bridges National Monument because it said "Lake Powell ferry open" on an electronic sign. We drove the 60 miles road down to the ferry and finally approached the gate of Glen Canyon National Recreational Area. Nobody was in the booth and a sign said we had to pay... More

Stayed 2 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our time in Page. The recreation area has lots to offer, our favourite being the Colorado river adventure - raft floating below th dam to see the canyons and the wildlife. It's so spectacular and so big that it can take the visitors easily. The tour at gun canyon dam was excellent too.

Water levels are down right now but this place is still captivating. So much to do...rent a houseboat for a day or a week for a small group or a large extended family and float on Lake Powell enjoying the beauty. Travel by RV and enjoy the Wahweap camping area with lovely views of the water. Visit the Glen Canyon... More

The Glen Hayden Visitor Center here at the Glen Canyon Dam is one of the nicest we've been to. The dam tour was very interesting. There are three different movies, and several informative exhibits. It was a good way to spend a few hours during the hottest part of the day. Highly recommend a visit here.

There is a double iron Navajo bridge just before the entrance with a Great information centre, and toilets. The bridge makes a great photo opportunity. The are Condors in the area a lot here, but we weren't lucky enough to see them. Lots to do in the park, but beware the parking meter which at this s time seems to... More

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
