What a beautiful place, so much to do near by even if you don't have a boat, it's a must see. It's between the Grand Canyon and on the way to Zion, stop and see the slot canyons, and various sights.

We took the 2-1/2 hour Canyon Adventure Boat Tour at Lake Powell Resort. The seating on the upper deck of the boat is limited so we had to sit inside. We still had a view and could walk to the back of the boat outside. The scenery was spectacular! The water is a beautiful bluish green among the red cliffs!... More

Take photos from the visitor's center near the dam. Dinner cruises are only available in the evenings. Nice stop on the way to Grand Canyon.

We did the Antelope Canyon Cruise on Lake Powell and its quite a hike from the Resort to the boat and the walk back up a steep hill to the Resort can be tough unless you can get a ride on the occasional golf cart making the trip. The trip to Antelope Canyon showcases some beautiful landscape and Antelope Canyon... More

Paul was an amazing tour guide ! He helped us figure out where to tour the next day when we rented a powerboat! The boat tour is very nice yet, three hours would have been better. The water level is down and therefore the boat travels a different course for seven and a half hours!! We brought a cooler with... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Lake Powell on our Caravan Tour. The lake is absolutely breathtaking. We did the boat tour of Antelope Canyon and to see "the place where water runs through rocks" was a thrill. I definitely recommend a visit to Lake Powell to see the natural beauty our country has to... More

What a lovely Lake. Stop at the viewpoints along the way to take in this picturesque Lake. You can swim and go boating or take a Lake Cruise to see more. A truly lovely spot to see.
