Lake Powell’s best bodies of water

Gaze in Wonder at Rainbow Bridge

Whisk off far up to the northern end in your Lake Powell boat rental to discover a natural wonder that’s been a sacred site for millennia. From the jetty, a brief walk will take you to Rainbow Bridge, one of the largest natural bridges in the world.

Enjoy Panoramic Views of Glen Canyon Dam

The Glen Canyon Dam is a spectacular engineering feat and is the second-largest concrete arch dam in the United States. It holds Lake Powell together and is the ending point for your Lake Powell boat rental.

Glen Canyon Recreation Area

The Glen Canyon Recreation area is over 1.2 million acres in size and offers campers, boaters, hunters, anglers, and every other type of sportsperson, many ways to get their sport on. In addition, Lake Powell, a draw to the area, is the second-largest artificial Lake globally and offers boaters many ways to get on the water.

Lake Powell Most Popular Boating Experiences

One of the nation's most prominent inland boating destinations, Lake Powell has a lot to offer visitors to this area of Arizona and Utah. 

Situated at an elevation of 3,556.33 feet above sea level, Lake Powell is 186 miles in length and has a maximum width of 25 miles. With a shore length of 3057 miles, you can explore its many interesting sites for weeks. 

 Marinas are located at the northern and southern ends of Lake Powell, allowing you to access the Lake at the location closest to you. 

The best way to see the sights of this area is with a Lake Powell boat rental, and the six marinas located in Utah and Arizona offer boaters ample access to the Lake. Each location has its own blend of offerings, which includes dining, stores, and marine services, of course. 

 

Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas

The Lake Powell Resort at Wahweap offers access to the marina, Lake Powell, and the docks. They have several options for dining, a sauna, and a fitness center. Their pet-friendly atmosphere means your pet can come with you, and then everyone is happy. 

The largest marina and water center on Lake Powell, Wahweap Marina, is a few miles north of the Glen River dam. Amenities include lodging, RV sites, a campground, wifi, and a selection of restaurants that should tempt even the fussiest in your group. 

Boat services here include showers, restaurants, fuel, and everything necessary for a fantastic day on the water for those who launch from here. 

Also, part of the marina is the Stateline boat launch. It is located on the Arizona/Utah border and is accessible from Wahweap at exit number 89. You can get fuel for your boat at Stateline during the boating season and at Wahweap marina year-round.

At the general store, you will find all of the fixings for a picnic on the water. Or, if you prefer, contact one of the restaurants and have them pack your lunch. Either way, you pack lunch, don't forget the sunscreen!

 

At the northernmost marina on this list is Bullfrog Marina. Unfortunately, Bullfrog marina does not have the amenities of Wahweap or Antelope Point Marina. Still, it does have ample parking and is a short drive to Defiance House Lodge, where you will find dining, RV sites, and campgrounds, giving you many options when planning your vacation.

 

Antelope point marina is a few miles from Wahweap and the southernmost marina on the shores of Lake Powell. Another of Lake Powell's boating destinations places you close to Antelope Canyon and the slot canyon formations of the area.  

Although some destinations, such as Rainbow Bridge, can only be reached by water, on foot, or by horse, getting to them by water adds a bit of enchantment and an entirely different perspective of this natural marvel. Antelope marina offers a new RV park, three restaurants, and shopping at the Marina Village. 

Nearby sites include the Navajo Canyon, Navajo Village Heritage Center, the Arches National Park, the Navajo National Monument, and many other areas. 

And now on to our following location, which is accessible only by water.

 

The mid-way point for fuel and provisions is about halfway between the Bullfrog marina at the north end of Lake Powell and Wahweap Marina to the south. The dangling rope marina is the connector to the two as a pit stop and is 40 miles north of the Glen Canyon Dam.  

Here they have boat fuel, restrooms, a few groceries, and a snack bar. Before planning a full-length trek of the Lake, check the status of the most remote outpost on Lake Powell, and plan accordingly.

 

Not as large as its sister marinas, Halls Crossing has RV parking and primitive campground sites. Although it has fewer amenities than the other five marinas on Lake Powell, the water levels remain high enough during the dry season that boats can still be launched from the ramp. As a result, Halls Crossing is a handy place to pull into for provisions. More than just a pit stop on your adventures, Halls Crossing gives you access to so much more. 

This area is surrounded by beaches, cliffs, dunes, and Slickrock canyons to explore and appeal to those who want to take the road less traveled. The amenities provided here include a service station, grocery store, and laundry, so you are not entirely in the wilderness, but you will be very close. 

 

Tours of Antelope canyon are by reservation only, and they will take you into the wonders of the slot canyons of Arizona. What is a slot canyon, you ask? Slot canyons are long channels that have been carved into the rock by millennia of erosion from the water that can pour through these areas. The beauty of the canyons is wondrous. 

The carved layers of the sandstone walls of the canyons are a multitude of colors, and the light and shadows they create are a photographer's dream. So if you come to the Lake Powell area to enjoy one of the top boating destinations in the U.S., take time to tour the upper Antelope Canyon.

 

Another location in Arizona near Lake Powell and worthy of a tour is. Vermillion Cliffs and White Pocket. Some of the most interesting geographical formations in North America can be found here. The expeditions into these areas can last all day so be prepared for it with good shoes and comfortable clothes. 

 

South of the Glen Canyon dam is one of the more interesting formations of the Colorado River in the Horseshoe Bend area. You can tour this area of Arizona by air, foot, or by floating gently down the river, with a view of the cliffs and heavens above you. Imagine.

The 270-degree bend in the river almost folds back to meet itself as it meanders southward through Arizona. Whether you float it, fly over it, or look down upon it from the cliffs above, Horseshoe Bend needs to be a sight you see when visiting Lake Powell.

 

The Navajo Nation

Spreading across three states, the Navajo Nation covers 27,000 square miles that cover Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico. While in the area, a visit to Hubbell Trading Post, built to supply the Navajo's returning from Fort Sumter, is still run today by the National Park Service and sells food and souvenirs. 

The Navajo Nation Museum (The museum at Window Rock) has exhibits that tell the history and culture of the Navajo Tribe, and exhibits display textiles, ceramics, and silverwork. The amphitheater has amazing acoustics, and when speaking from a certain point, the sound reverberates outside your head, but only from that one spot. It is quite a mysterious and delightful occurrence.

No matter how long your stay in the area, there are many ways to enjoy all that Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon Recreation area have to offer.
