Lake Powell is a reservoir located in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, lying on the border of Arizona and Utah. It is known for its wealth of sandy beaches, sparkling blue water, and red-rock landscapes. It is the second largest man-made reservoir in the United States, measuring 24,322,000 acre feet (30 km³).
Some of the lake's famous features include the Glen Canyon Dam (located in Arizona) and the Rainbow Bridge, one of the world longest natural bridges (located in Utah). If you are a recreation enthusiast, a trip to the lake is definitely worthwhile; Lake Powell is excellent for boating, waterskiing, jet-skiing, kayaking, and fishing. In addition, there are prepared campsites at all of the lake's marinas, but you are free to camp wherever they like.
Lake Powell is one of Arizona's main (and most fun!) attractions. To access the southwestern end of Lake Powell in Arizona, you can use U.S. Route 89 and State Route 98.
