  • Amazing engineering feat. Similar, but more incredible than the Hoover Dam near Las Vegas. If you're in the Page area, stop by - you won't be disappointed.

  • Great FREE stop for beautiful dramatic views of the canyon. Be sure to hold the railing on the way down - the sand makes the path down slippery in certain parts. You could be in and out in less than 10 minutes or linger and enjoy the different viewpoints for an hour. Easy parking, including for RVs.
  • Glen Canyon Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam on the Colorado River in northern Arizona, United States, near the town of Page. The 710-foot (220 m) high dam was built by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) from 1956 to 1966 and forms Lake Powell, one of the largest man-made reservoirs in the U.S. with a capacity of 27 million acre-feet (33 km3). The dam is named for Glen Canyon, a series of deep sandstone gorges now flooded by the reservoir; Lake Powell is named for John Wesley Powell, who in 1869 led the first expedition to traverse Colorado's Grand Canyon by boat.
