We had already visited Hoover Dam which was interesting but decided to visit Glen Dam as its the second largest dam in America. I much preferred it. Loved the views and felt it was more natural than Hoover Dam where you have to pay extra to go in the museum.

I have mixed feelings about the dam so it's difficult to write a review. It was beautiful to see, especially from the air (we took a flight seeing tour). And, certainly the dam is vital for managing water supply to the SW. However, I couldn't help but have concerns for the impact this has had on the environment given the... More

Much to see and do in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Lake Powell, Wahweap, Antelope, Horseshoe Bend and Lee's Ferry to name a few. Bring your camera.

If you visit this National Park, do take a boat trip to get the feel of the area. We didn't have much time so this time took the 2.5 hour trip which we enjoyed very much. Last time we took a longer trip which I suggest if you have the time. It is an incredible lake. Our trip was from... More

We enjoyed the beauty of this gorgeous area by taking a float trip on large rafts. There are no rapids - just beautiful 1000 -1200 foot high walls of beautiful rock formations.

You can't really see Lake Powell in all it's splendor from the highway but going into Glen Canyon gives you many gorgeous views of Lake Powel the vibrant landscape surrounding it. Plenty of places to pull off to take pictures.

The entire Page/Lake Powell area is absolutely breathtaking and there's a lot to see and do; Horseshoe Bend, Page, Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon Slot and the Marina, Wahweap, Glen Canyon Dam, etc.... So make sure and give yourself adequate time when visiting because you're gonna want to see it all.

This was our first kayak trip and first visit to Page and it was a blast! We launched out of Antelope Point and spent an afternoon in the river. Wahweap was bigger and offers great accommodations, just a 15 minute ride from anywhere in Page. In fact, we were able to drive from Wahweap to Antelope Point in about 30'ish... More
