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.
