Amazing views

We took a trip on one of the boats that take you right up close to the Dam and really great canyon views, you could almost reach out and touch the canyon walls.

We did a houseboat trip with friends in the park on Lake Powell. Rock Creek Bay was a tranquil spot with good beach locations. Gunsight Canyon offered not only great beaches, but also great kayaking. We spent a week on the lake.

Did the one of the boat cruises. It was great! Another way to see the amazing sandstone. Well worth it!

This recreational area runs along Lake Powell and is absolutely beautiful. There is a lot to see if you have access to a boat. Over 90 various canyons to explore. Good fishing with unlimited catch limits on several types of fish.

Nothing will impress you more than the sheer size and scope of the Glen Canyon project to economize and distribute water supply to the SW USA, generate electricity and by the way provide a superb boating and recreational facility at 3,600 ft altitude. Tour the dam for 45 minutes with guide, go through the rather severe security check and find... More

We didn't have much structure to our day, just sort of driving around the Page area taking in the sights. We happened upon this area and drove in. Having a National Park Pass made it a free excursion for us. There is an entrance fee. Gorgeous photo ops. Definitely worth the drive. We didn't do any activities within the park,... More

Lovely cruise among the high walls. Feels like you have gone back in time with the unspoiled views. Wow.

There's so much to see and do here, that it's hard to know where to start. If you have a day, rent a boat at the Wahweap Marina and head to Rainbow Bridge National Monument. It's about 2 hours each way, and there are spots along the way where you can jump off the cliffs into the lake, or you... More

Lake Powell is beautiful & we were able to picnic here. We were unable to rent a boat as at one marina all boats were all rented out & the other one only had the real expensive ones left.
