Lake Powell

4.6
Lake Powell serves as the playground for the town of Page, drawing nearly three million visitors annually. This second largest artificial lake in the US bears the name of the civil war veteran and explorer John Wesley Powell. A trip to Lake Powell reveals a surreal oasis of shoreline and a labyrinth of hidden waterways filled with caves, grottoes, and bays. Aside from inevitable boating, popular things to do in Lake Powel include paddleboarding, swimming, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, water skiing, hiking, and sightseeing. A scenic helicopter flight provides a bird's-eye view of the lake's 96 canyons and powerboats zipping about its surface. With steep, red-rock cliffs emerging above sparkling water that changes its color from green-blue to petrol black, photographic opportunities abound. Lake Powell is in Utah (UT). When using our United States tour itinerary planner , you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
