There is a fee to drive in but you can purchase the national park pass. The restrooms by the shore were closed but the Campground shop has 24hr restrooms and washers/dryers and even showers. You have to pay $2 for 15 minutes of water.

Glen Canyon offers a spectacular venue for boating, rafting, camping, hiking and fishing. You are surrounded by 1400 foot red rock cliffs on each side. We were lucky to see a California Condor!

Nice, pretty, some info about sights provided. It’s a pretty area and the boat tour goes up a couple of canyons, you also get a bit of a view of the dam from a distance.

We saw an article in 1990 talking about renting houseboats on Lake Powell, and dreamed of one day being able to do so. This was the year! We had a great trip. The boats are more affordable if you split the costs with friends, which...More

We spent a very relaxing day at the Park. As it was late October it was fairly quiet. We had a very enjoyable picnic and a walk around the gardens, we even saw a road-runner!
