Along the northern Arizona and southern Utah border is Lake Powell, a man-made lake created by Glen Canyon Dam in Page, Arizona. Lake Powell is the second-largest artificial reservoir by volume in the United States. The reservoir lake has 1,960 miles of shoreline along the serpentine canyons, this is more shoreline than the state of California!
Unfortunately, Lake Powell’s water level is the lowest it’s been in decades, and the latest 24-month projections from the reservoir show that it’s likely to drop even further below a critical threshold of 3,525 feet by 2022, but does this stop the fun at Lake Powell? Not one bit! While Lake Powell travelers are concerned about the drought and water level, it doesn’t stop the fun.
House boating is by far the most popular way to vacation at Lake Powell. Houseboats offer a unique experience, it’s like having a beach house that goes wherever you want. Each day, you beach the houseboat on one of many beaches around the lake. Using a couple anchors buried in the sand, you can make sure your houseboat stays put throughout the night. And then you call that beach your home for as long or short as you like.
Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy trips to Lake Powell for the endless opportunities for adventure – there’s boating, water sports, fishing, grilling, hiking, cliff jumping, swimming, kayaking, stargazing, games, and more sunshine than you ever thought was possible.
You can expand your Lake Powell adventure opportunities and rent a powerboat. A powerboat adds some adrenaline to your vacation with water skiing, wakeboarding, and tubing.
