I wish everyone could visit Lake Powell National Recreation Area at least once in their life. The best way to describe it for those who have been to the Grand Canyon is to imagine it full of water. We have gone to Lake Powell numerous times over a period of 25 years. Renting a house boat is a good way to see it, but the price of that has gotten pretty rediculous if you ask me. If you have a boat great, if not, find a friend who does. Over the years we have toured the entire lake including all canyons, some of which require you back out as they get quite narrow. Either Bullfrog Marina in Utah or Wahweep outside of Page, Arizona are good starting points. Viewing Rainbow Bridge will require a hike as the water level is lower than when we saw it years ago. It is worth the effort. It's impossibe to explain the beauty of the entire area. Everyone we have taken has been blown away by the beauty. There are RV parks and camping areas at both Bullfrog and Wahweep as well as lodges and restaurants. In summer months the water is wonderful for swimming and all other water activities. Even during the 4th of July week there was still pleanty of room on the water.
