Visit Lake Powell, Arizona
Located on the Colorado River and straddling the border between Utah and Arizona, Lake Powell is a man-made reservoir covering an impressive 186 miles in length and nearly 2,000 miles of shoreline, which is longer than the entire west coast of the United States. With 96 major canyons, some of which are 15 to 20 miles long, Lake Powell is the perfect destination for anyone looking for adventure and natural beauty.
Discover the history and geology of the lake aboard fascinating boat tours, feel the adrenaline rush on your powerboat or personal watercraft, or enjoy an unforgettable sunset dinner cruise while taking in the amazing panoramic views. This end of the lake is also home to the impressive Glen Canyon Dam, which is open year-round for tours.
Whether you rent a powerboat, personal watercraft, water skis, wakeboard, paddleboard, tube, or kayak, there’s no shortage of great places to explore on Lake Powell. Antelope Canyon is a popular destination for its scenic slot canyon region, but there’s more to explore from the lake! Near its confluence with the Colorado River, the canyon widens, and boaters can marvel at the towering walls of sandstone. Gunsight Canyon, named for its resemblance to that part of a firearm, offers towering slot walls and sandy beaches perfect for waterskiing, tubing, and wakeboarding.
Navajo Canyon is one of the longest of Lake Powell’s 96 major side canyons and offers breathtaking views of Navajo Tapestries, the multi-colored streaks of iron oxide and manganese residue that have “draped” down the sides of the canyon wall. Padre Bay is the biggest bay on Lake Powell, with spectacular views of monuments such as Domingues Butte, Tower Butte, Cookie Jar Butte, and the aptly-named Boundary Butte, which sits astride both Utah and Arizona. Wahweap Bay is a big, broad, scenic expanse that offers plenty of wide-open space for waterskiing and wakeboarding. Yet, it also offers its share of notch canyons ideal for kayaks and paddleboards.
Whether you’re looking for an action-packed adventure or a peaceful retreat, Lake Powell has it all.
