This area has so much to do. We did a rafting trip from the dam on Thanksgiving day and it was so peaceful & beautiful. Horseshoe Bend is also a breathtaking sight and worth the short hike from the road. Nothing beats Antelope Canyon, which is very close by. There's so many incredible sights around Page AZ that I would... More

You cannot beat the scenery around Page and Glen Canyon as it is some of the best in the world. You can drive alongside Glen Canyon and admire the red rock canyons and scenery. Also take a boat trip on Lake Powell and if you have the time go to Rainbow Bridge.

We were directed to Lone Rock Beach by the clerk at the hotel were we were staying. Really glad we went, I could see how in the spring-summer months, this would be an extremely popular destination. We were happy to be there in February, as there were no crowds, but there were a few campers on the sand. We took... More

As someone who always wanted to give Lake Powell an extended visit...and someone who has only recently scratched the surface...i see the current beauty but also GET what was lost. Wish i had more time to check out the re-emerging side canyons, ruins and other treasures due to low water levels. All in all, it's worth a visit while keeping... More

There were a few nice scenic spots in this area. From the parking lot at the dam, there are walkways across the bridge. From the bridge, you can look down onto the Colorado River. If you drive past the dam and up the hill, there is a parking area with a great view of Lake Powell. The dam also offers... More

Suitable for boating and fishing (and camping), this place was deserted during Christmas week. Loved peace and quiet on a tiny beach by Colorado river.

I basically drove through the recreation area and made only 1 stop. The dam is nice to see up close otherwise not much activity to do.

Granted it's not Hoover Dam, but it's a pretty nice place if you are in the area. The tour guide Paul was excellent. He is knowledgeable about the area and explained Lake Powell and Glen Canyon well.

Glen Canyon and Glen Canyon Dam overlook offer beautiful views. It is located in Page Arizona, close to Antelope Canyon, so it makes sense to stop by Glen Canyon if you go to Antelope Canyon. Make sure you get out of the car and walk a couple hundred yards to get a better view and awesome pictures.

Thank Sandy S
