Lake Powell is a fantastic place to visit, whether you camp, waterski, jet ski, boat, or simply take a day tour of the lake, it’s a place you should see!
Lake Powell is the second largest man-made lake in the United States. It is 186 miles long and has more than 1900 miles of shoreline. Imagine a desert landscape with cliffs, mesas and gorges carved out of pink and red sandstone with almost no living vegetation. Yet, in the middle of this barren and austere beauty lies an almost surreal expanse of azure water surrounding crimson buttes and extending its fingers into innumerable canyons and serpentine ravines. It is one of the most unusual and beautiful places in southwestern USA.
The best way to see the magnificent scenery around Lake Powell is via boat. You can take guided tours from Page or from nearby marinas to visit many of the local attractions like the majestic Rainbow Bridge, the largest known natural bridge in the world. You can rent a motorboat or a kayak and explore the lake and its 96 major side canyons on your own. If you have the time, you can rent a comfortable houseboat for a leisurely week of gently cruising around this immense lake, fishing, swimming or exploring.
