Did not even know this existed. Driving from LA to Cape Cod and on my way between Arizona and Utah came across this amazing dam and bridge. What an awesome gift shop. Great exhibits. Unfortunately did not have enough time to take a tour but...More
We were planning to join the guided tour of the dam but turned out all the slots were taken up. The visitor centre though has some good exhibits and a nice vantage point to see the dam and the bridge. A good stop if you...More
Glen Canyon Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam on the Colorado River in northern Arizona, near Page. The 710-foot-high dam was built by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation from 1956 to 1966 and forms Lake Powell, one of the largest man-made reservoirs in the United...More
If you're in Page, AZ, don't miss this interesting and educating tour of the Glen Canyon Dam. The Visitors' Center is a must see, as well as the dam tour itself. The Visitors' Center will show you (and your kids!!!) the whole dams' system in...More
Starting from Page for Bryce Canyon we stopped at this Dam. It has a nice Visitor’s Centre & the overlook offers a good panoramic view of the dam & the surroundings. The Colorado river with its deep blue green waters twinning its way through Glen...More
Actually our tour of the Glen Canyon Dam was a part of our Caravan Tour. It was actually a side trip that we decided to take because of my desire to visit the Hoover Dam someday. It turns out the Hoover Dam and the Glen...More
We stopped here on a photography tour, so we did not do the tour of the dam. We were able to get some great pictures of the dam and Lake Powell from the visitor center.
We saw the movie 'Standing Tall' which documented the making...More
Glen Canyon has a good visitor centre which was very informative about how the dam works and how it was built. We decided to do the guided tour which was only $5 pp. Paige, our guide, was so knowledgable about the entire Dam - super...More
Very cool place to stop if in the area, nice Visitor's Center with may overlooks of the dam. Tours are offered every 30 minutes or so depending on the season, but they do not take advanced reservations. So beware that you may have to wait...More
We chose to go to the Glen Canyon Dam rather than the Hoover Dam because they are essentially the same size, yet the GCD is much more reasonably priced than the HD. The visitor center was well laid out, informational, and engaging. We were not...More
The question is not really clear but you cannot drive on the dam itself. There is a bridge across the Colorado River just below the dam. It has a pedestrian walkway as well as lanes for cars/trucks. If you take the Dam... More
The question is not really clear but you cannot drive on the dam itself. There is a bridge across the Colorado River just below the dam. It has a pedestrian walkway as well as lanes for cars/trucks. If you take the Dam Tour, you can walk on the top of the dam and then go down inside to where the turbines are. Great tour. Hope this helps.
