  • A dam is a dam... And this is great... The most striking is the history of construction. The most unpleasant was the control at the entrance, we went with the van of 10 people and the suitcases because we changed places and made them take everything and open, this under a heat Abrazador... And we are old and decent-looking people... Was revolting

  • The entrance to the overlook is on a road behind some hotels. Great view of the dam and river, and so much fun climbing on and over the rocks at this place. Excellent photo ops here and just an unexpe...  more »

  • An easy walk from parking lot to see spectacular gorge carved by river below. Dominated by plenty of the red (iron rich) rock this area is famous for. Beautiful rock outcroppings. Interesting flora and lizards! Photo opportunities! Recommended.
  • A dam is a dam is a dam, what more can you say. The views are spectacular and breathtaking, it is a wonder of mans engineering. You must go and take it in yourself, you too will be in awe. It is located near Lake Powell, go visit there as well. Enjoy my friends. 😲👍
  • Since the damn is one of the largest in the country, and Glen Canyon is captivating with its towering red-rock faces, an overlook makes a lot of sense. The overlook provides a sweeping view of both. The designers did a fantastic job here of providing a wonderful overlook that really blends into the natural beauty of the rock. There is room to hike around, catch different vantage points, and find some solitude. Great spot for enjoying the sunset!
  • the spot is just a minute off the route 89 and offers Great views of the canyon. Would recommend a quick stop if you are near this area
  • This overlook is a must see. It is a rustic handrail down to an absolutely amazing view of the entire dam which puts the whole place into perspective of just how massive it really is. If you have a hard time walking the top of the lookout is for you but if you are able follow the handrail for a spectacular view!!
