Lake Powell was created in the year 1963. This is when the Glen Canyon Dam was in the process of being constructed and put into place. It took roughly 17 years for the lake to fill completely. Underneath, if you were to remove over 500 feet of water, you will find Anasazi ruins, many mining sites, among other fascinating history that would be sure to surprise you. Above, you will find yourself surrounded by magnificent rock formations and cliffs.
See the lake with more shoreline than the west coast. The water fluctuates from deep blue to a sea green depending on the time of day and weather. There are rentals for boats or personal watercraft as well as boat tours that will take you to Rainbow Bridge, Antelope Point or, in the summer, dinner cruises. You can swim, fish, scuba dive or walk along the beach. There is a fee to enter Lake Powell, which you can pay at the gate or you may use a National Parks Pass.
Lake Powell is located approximately an hour away from our location.
