Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Page
(4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Replete with plateaus, crevasses, and vast expanses of desert terrain, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area also boasts the extensive Lake Powell and its host of outdoor and water activities. Spanning 507,649 ha (1,254,429 acres) in Utah and Arizona, the area borders several national parks. Take part in water sports, such as waterskiing, inner tubing or boating. Or lounge on a rented houseboat on Lake Powell, which presents a cool contrast to the stark, arid landscape. If you're bringing your own boat, you can launch it at one of the marinas along the shore. If you stay on dry land, you can explore the park's network of hiking trails through its canyons and hills. Cliff-diving into Lake Powell is strictly forbidden (and very dangerous). Work out when and for how long to visit Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and other Page attractions using our handy Page family vacation planner.

  • Much to see and do in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Lake Powell, Wahweap, Antelope, Horseshoe Bend and Lee's Ferry to name a few. Bring your camera. 
  • We visited this canyon kinda quickly since passing through Page for the Antelope Canyon. Arriving in Page Bryce Canyon you will come to a bridge that crosses the Lake Powell where you can stop to take photos and where there is also a visitor centre. Lake Powell is an artificial lake created on the Colorado River with the construction of Glen Canyon Dam. Along almost 300 km, Lake and located on the border between the States of Arizona and Utah. Having recently opted to see some scenic spot of Glen Canyon depart on foot. Well what to say in front of the overhangs on the Colorado River with the spectacular red rock, and the colors of the Lake in the distance? Just great!
