Welcome to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area & Lake Powell


Lake Powell stretches for more than 185 miles, surrounded by millions of acres of desert incorporated into the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Most of the watery way lies within Utah. However, Glen Canyon Dam itself, the main Glen Canyon National Recreation Area visitor center, the largest and most developed marina (Wahweap) and the biggest lakeside town (Page) are all in Arizona.
