Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Page

4.6
#3 of 10 in Wildlife in Page
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).

  • Take a break from the sights and with the children to a beach at Lake Powell. Very warm in summer, few amenities but a very nice area to chill and cool down in the lake. Access is included in the Annual NP Pass.

  • We only spent 30 minutes at the Dam overlook, but we weren’t disappointed!! Some nice rocks to climb around on off the trail if you’d like! Fun for the whole family!  more »
