What makes a Lake Powell Vacation so attractive to nearly 300 million visitors a year?
Is it the clean, unpolluted azure sky, the clear sparkling water dancing in the early morning light?
Or is it the canyons that John Wesley Powell described as
“…a curious ensemble of wonderful features…carved walls, royal arches, glens, alcoves, gulches, mounds, and monuments…?”
Yes! It is all those things and more.
It is the nearly 2000 miles of shoreline that attracts houseboaters from all over the world.
It is the long narrow meandering canyons that wind and twist like a giant serpent.
If you are looking for a reason to take a Lake Powell vacation, you have only to consider any of the above.
But, if that’s not enough for you, consider the following:
• Lake Powell has 1,960 miles of shoreline, more than the entire west coast of the United States.
• Lake Powell is 186 miles long, from Glen Canyon Dam in the south to Hite in the north.
• Lake Powell is a kayaker’s paradise with over 96 named and un-named canyons to explore.
• Lake Powell’s clean, clear water attracts visitors from all over the world to try their skills at swimming, waterskiing, stand up paddling, wakeboarding and scuba diving.
• Lake Powell is considered by many to be the House Boat Mecca of the world.
• Lake Powell offers the angler over a dozen different species of fish, from Brown Trout, to Channel Catfish to Northern Pike.
