  • While staying in a houseboat on Lake Powell we decided to go hiking one day. We boated to the back of Forgotten Canyon in a small fishing boat we brought with us. If you’re coming by water you’ll...  more »
  • We decided, late, to drive around Page to see what was in town. We drove down to the Lake Powell dam area and then around the lake for awhile. So nice. Amazing when these large dams get put into...  more »

  • We camped at Lone Rock Beach Campground. It is beautiful. You can camp right at the water's edge. I recommend you go here with at least one four wheel drive vehicles, which could pull you other out if you get stuck. The sand is very soft and powdery. Nice on bare feet. Great for swimming, boating, jet skiing, kayaking. Because the sand is soft and powdery, when the wind blows hard, it can create sandstorms which usually only last a short time, but make sure all you stuff is tied down. It is very hot here in the summer, (We were here early September) but you have the beautiful lake to cool off in. The water is cool enough to be refreshing, but not too cold either. It was just right. Love this place. It is so beautiful.
  • I love Lake Powell! Such a fun place to visit! During the summer the water gets really warm, and swimming is great! Not to mention the place is beautiful, and HUGE! There's so much to explore and look at... All while having fun jet skiing, wake surfing, tubing, and more on the lake! I've been here every year since I was a child and will probably keep going every year for the rest of my life! 5/5!!
