This park is not so huge, but worth visiting especially at the sunset. If you have enough time, I recommend to arrive early and enjoy the leisurely afternoon. Walking along the path in early morning is also great!

For those interested in seeing nice views of Lake Powell near Page, you can enjoy the area around the Carl Hayden Dam which are nice. However, much better views can be found just a few miles up Highway 89 north of Page at the Wahweap Viewpoint. To find this viewpoint, simply drive north a few miles past the dam. Don't... More

I was excited to see Lake Powell and the beauty surrounding it; but the stories about the lake's shrinking size are not exaggerated. This must be negatively effecting the numerous marinas and boat businesses in the area as well as the hotels and restaurants.

Nothing much to attract the casual visitor - its a lake with average views - much better things to see in this region

We only spent an afternoon there, wish we could stay longer. Love the sunset. Frequently, we were the only after along the shore.

Spent a couple of days at Lake Powell Resort in late March. It's a nice time to go if you're looking for a peaceful retreat with stunning backdrops. The sunsets where perfect and the crowds at the local tourist stops like Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend where relatively light. The resort is in the National Recreation Area and has direct...
