Launch Your Boat Onto Lake Powell
A beautiful treasure awaits visitors in Page, Arizona. Incredible Lake Powell was created when the Glen Canyon Dam was built in 1966, for hydroelectricity. This magnificent lake, featuring 1,960 miles of shoreline, is the second-largest man-make lake in the country, behind Lake Mead, Nevada.
The lake is named after John Wesley Powell, an American Civil War Veteran who explored the Colorado River in 1869. While in Page, take time to stroll through the John Wesley Powell Museum to learn more about this American West explorer.
When Lake Powell is full, it holds 24,000,000 acre feet of water and spans 254 square miles, across Northern Arizona and Southern Utah.
Recreational enthusiasts love spending time on the lake. Favorite water sports on the lake include boating, jet-skiing, water-skiing, swimming, fishing and tubing.
A must-see Lake Powell attraction is Rainbow Bridge National Monument. Be sure to beach the boat along the shore and hike up to see this amazing sandstone arch.
