Until you have taken a boat trip on Lake Powell, you have not seen anything! The majestic rock cliffs all around this beautiful lake have to be seen to be appreciated. Words can not describe the beauty and grandeur in the middle of a sometimes barren dessert.

We took a 2.5 hour boat tour around the lake and canyons and then swam at Lone Rock Beach. It has been awesome.

Stayed two nights at Lake Powell Inn & Resort and Just soaked in the whole area. Incredible beauty and that is just seeing all the changes in the landscapes on the drive in to the area.

Rafting tour is a must .... Amazing tour and views.... We did the half day tour and I recommend the early 7:30 am tour... I think the light and views are best in the early morning....👌👍😄

We spent three days on a houseboat on the lake recently. The lake is beautiful. There were high winds in the evening and night that demanded good mooring with the four anchors.

We arrived in the afternoon, as a part of our 4,500 mile road trip, to camp in the park- and ended up sad that we didn't have longer to stay. With its blue waters and white rock, it's absolutely gorgeous! A boat on that lake would have been Heaven! The sunset was crazy beautiful- and ended with a strange "rainbow"... More

Went on the boat tour down the river. Group was very knowledgeable. Got an up close look at the dam and some great details about the area.

I wish we could have spent more time exploring the lake! An afternoon on Jetskis through Antelope Canyon was incredible, but too short. I would love to rent a houseboat and explore the northern section more.
