We rented a houseboat and stayed a week. There is also a nice campground at Waheap. Lake Powell is huge and has a lot of great coves to explore, excellent fishing and great hiking as well. We will come back for sure.

Lovely scenery - amazing. We did a half-day boat trip (organised) which was amazing and great value. Great way to experience the canyon close up and personal. Then observing from the top (viewpoints) was the icing on the cake.

Yes - we heard it was spectacular but we were totally impressed with its magnificence. Now we have to go back and see the North Rim and Horseshoe Bend!
