Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Page

(4.5/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • אחד המקומות המיוחדים בהחלט אני מקווה שאנני תועה במקום יש שם קירות של ההרים בצבעים שונים ויפים והם נשקפים יפה בתוך הנהר מומלץ למי שנמצא באיזור תמיד שווה לראות דברים יפים כאלה 
  • With the national park pass you can get "free" in the area, which is really huge, but just a small part of the page by car is available. In the area of lone rock, there is a beach, which is accessible by car. Caution is however, since it's sandy ground and we were able to observe, woe is had stuck to someone. The area around the Lake Powell is beautiful, very relaxing, but little infrastructure. When we were there, it was still too cold for swimming and also boats were just a few on the Lake.
