Lake Powell has a dam similar to Hoover Dam, the boat ride here gives a better view of the cliffs. To get to the boat tour it take 15 mins hike down hill to the boat. To drive into this place you need to pay one time entry of $15.00 for car valid for 7 days. This place is good... More

The only part of the Recreation Area that we visited was the Glen Canyon Dam and Visitor Center. The center is very informative with wonderful views and an extensive gift shop. Don't miss a guided tour of the dam itself. Our tour guide was a former employee of the dam and was very well-versed in the workings of the dam.... More

One of the most beautiful (and fun) places in the United States. Houseboats everywhere; fishing, canoeing, skiing, diving, you name it! The scenery is gorgeous with the buttes and red, pink and white rocks along the shores. I love this place!

The four hour journey down the Colorado river is excellent from seeing the tall cliffs from another angle to watching the fisherman out in the river fly fishing. The river meanders slowly for many mile as the water is held back by the huge Lake Powell Dam which is similar in size to the Hoover Dam. Both the rafting experience... More

A quick visit will surely make your trip to Page even better, the center is well maintained, properly documented and also has activities for kids. Our boy was quite motivated to get their Junior ranger badge. You won't be wasting your time spending 45 minutes at GCNRA

We wanted to see both sides of the Saguaro National Park, as well as Tucson, and the Living Desert Museum. This was a great place to stay. The RV spots were not close together, and it had hook-ups for $22.00 a night.

We took a rafting trip through Glen Canyon with Colorado River Discovery, and it was a very fun day trip. While Glen Canyon isn't the largest or most majestic in Arizona, it had some pretty cliffs and colors (maybe it would have been more impressive if we hadn't just come from the Grand Canyon). We didn't have the time or... More

Glen Canyon NRA is very scenic and like an oasis in the desert. If you are a boater, you will love the place. It is run by the Bureau of Reclamation and is a fee area. If you have a National Parks Senior Pass, you can get it under that. Otherwise, it will cost you $5 to get through the... More

This is an easy one mile round trip hike suitable for all abilities. The trail is in full sun, so sunscreen and water are a must. The trail ends in a shaded alcove where a garden of ferns grow. There are rocks a along the way, making it easy to follow. There are nice views of mountains and rocks along... More

Beautiful scenery, especially at sunset. If you take a boat tour try to be first to get place on a top level of the ship. Lower cabin does not give as good view as a top level.
