We have a trip to the Grand Canyon planned for June, 2009. We have 2-3 days after GC and would really like to spend a few days on Lake Powell. We'll be backpacking in the GC for 4 days prior so we're looking for something not too strenuous and the thought of being on the water sounds great.
My first thought was a houseboat but I can't justify the cost (we're only a family of 3.) So I'm thinking we can rent a small powerboat and camp along the lake. From what I understand, camping is allowed and free away from the developed marina areas. I'm wondering how easy it is to find good places to camp? Has anyone done this?
It is easy to get around Lake Powell on a small boat? Are there easily accessible shores where we can just pull the boat in and do a little hiking, set up camp, etc.?
