Lake Powell was on our coach tour itinerary, and to be honest, we were rather ambivalent about seeing it. However, fate intervened and we ended up booking a flight over the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and Lake Powell, after our original Grand Canyon helicopter flight...More

We hired canoes and had a wonderful few hours exploring the lake it's vastness is stunning and yet so peaceful - we had a lovely if not rather hot experience but the waters were amazing.

Don't know how Lake Powell is not rated the #1 attraction in Utah. The solitude and atmosphere are unmatched. If you love water and the outdoors, you'll keep going back. Hiking, boating, historical markers like Hole-In-The-Rock. Unlimited canyons to explore. Very hot in July and...More

By far this is the best vacation spot. Tall canyons, warm 95 degree water, endless sun, red sandy beaches. My kids favorite things to do are hiking up to the Indian ruins, rainbow bridge and exploring all the inlets and caves. We now go every...More

Although strictly speaking not on the road (we hired a houseboat), this was our most joyful, awe-inspiring and favourite part of our trip. Our only regret was that we did not spend more time here. Lake Powell really is like the Grand Canyon filled with...More
