Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Page

#3 of 8 in Nature in Page
National Park Wildlife Area
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 houseboatĀ 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.

Where to stay in Page

For a chance to explore Arizona's famous canyon country without missing out on all the comforts of home, stay at a hotel or bed and breakfast in or near Page. A convenient base for exploring the surrounding area, this small town contains plenty of well-stocked shops, bars, and restaurants. If you don't need many modern amenities and prefer to experience the region from a less urban location, consider a campground near Lake Powell, located just 3.2 km (2 mi) from the center of the city.
