The lake is 186 miles long and has nearly 2,000 miles of shoreline. Straddling the Arizona-
Utah border, its sapphire blue water is rimmed by towering red sandstone cliffs, buttes, and
more than 90 major canyons and beautiful sandy beaches—making it the ideal destination for
houseboating, kayaking and other outdoor activities.

Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas is the one of the largest concessioners on the lake, operating marinas,
lodges, restaurants, tours and houseboat/watercraft rentals in Arizona and Utah. It operates
primarily out of two hubs: Wahweap Marina, located in Arizona near the town of Page, and
at Bullfrog Marina, located mid-lake in Utah. In addition to the robust operations at these two
destinations, Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas also offers amenities at Halls Crossing, Hite
Marina and Dangling Rope Marina, all in Utah.

se A son
Lake Powell is open year-round however, peak visitation occurs between late May through
October, with July and August being the busiest months.

h istory
Lake Powell is the nation’s second largest man-made reservoir. It was created by the damming
of the Colorado River in Glen Canyon in order to provide drinking water and generate electricity
for western cities such as Los Angeles and Phoenix, and to provide a place for recreation. The
lake is named in honor of John Wesley Powell, who explored the area in 1869 as director of the
U.S. Geological Survey.
The lake lies within the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, which was created in 1972 “to
provide for public use and enjoyment and to preserve the area’s scientific, historic, and scenic
features.” The recreation area received more than two million visitors in 2010, 30,000 of
whom stayed on a houseboat operated by Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas.

fees
As a part of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, there is a $15 entrance fee for each private,
non-commercial vehicle and its passengers that is valid for seven consecutive days.

Hite Marina, the landscape opens even more as the towering spires give way to wide expanses
and rolling red hills.

Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Lake Powell offer countless outdoor activities that
facilitate a broad spectrum of adventure – from a casual day trip to full immersion into all the
area has to offer.

f ish i ng
Lake Powell has a bounty of smallmouth and striped bass, walleye, catfish, crappie and bluegill
that can be caught from your boat or with the help of an expert guide. Half and full-day guided
fishing trips can be booked at (928) 645-1027.

Because Lake Powell spans two states, we encourage guests to visit both the Utah Division
of Wildlife Resources and the Arizona Game and Fishing Department for fishing and
license information.

h i k i ng
Very few roads traverse the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, leaving much of its expansive
red sandstone landmarks to be explored on foot. The area has a number of marked trails and
nearly 2,000 miles of backcountry and side canyons open for exploration. Hikers will find
numerous hidden trails in Lake Powell’s canyons, which offer incredible views and solitude,
lots of solitude. These sites and trails can only be accessed by boat or kayak, adding to
the adventure.

hor sebAc k r i de s
The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is located adjacent to Glen Canyon
National Recreation Area and is one of Southern Utah’s outdoor gems. One of the best ways
to explore the rugged beauty of this wilderness is via horseback. For reservations for this
adventure, phone (928) 660-2674.

Wilderness River Adventures operates a number of whitewater rafting options on the Colorado
River through the Grand Canyon and Canyonlands National Parks. Grand Canyon rafting
operates April to October and Cataract Canyon May to mid August, with trips departing
frequently at both locations. There is no waiting list for rafting trips.

Wilderness River Adventures has been running the Colorado River since 1983 and has more
than 140 years of combined experience on the river. The company constantly upgrades its gear
and uses state-of-the-art oar and motorized boats. Motorized boats are 37-feet long and can
transport up to 15 passengers and their gear. Oar boats are 18-feet long and accommodate up
to five passengers.

River trips are guided by experienced and knowledgeable guides who not only navigate the
raft through rapids, but also share the area’s history, geology and secrets. Guides also serve
as camp chefs serving delicacies such as steak and birthday cake for those celebrating on the
river. Rafters are provided with all necessary camping equipment including: tent, sleeping bag,
camp chair, dry bag, food, water, sodas, a souvenir cup, hat and t-shirt. Learn more at
www.riveradventures.com.

gr A n d c A n yon A dv e n t u r e s
The Grand Canyon’s segment of the Colorado River is assured a reliable flow of water from
Glen Canyon Dam. This facilitates predictable and sustained rapids even during drought years.
Wilderness River Adventures offers a wide range of trips for those looking to raft this iconic
locale, including motorized and oar boats with upper, lower, and full-canyon itineraries, with
trip lengths ranging from three to 16 days.

Upper and lower canyon trips include a hiking guide for the 10 mile trek through the canyon.
Lower and full canyon trips also include a helicopter flight, shower, lunch at the Bar 10 Ranch
and a flight back to Las Vegas, NV, South Rim of the Grand Canyon or Page, AZ.

cata r ac t ca n yon
Carving through the majestic Canyonlands National Park, Cataract Canyon is highly regarded
for the quality of its rapids and scenery. Raft trips depart from Potash, UT, a few miles south
of Moab, and travel 96 miles to Hite Marina on the northern tip of Lake Powell. Trips range in
length from two to five days.

h y br i d t r i Ps
For those who want the hands-on action of a paddle trip but would like the opportunity to
occasionally rest their weary arms, river trips with both oar and motorized rafts are available
through the Grand Canyon with 5 1/2, 6 1/2 or 12-day options.

sPec i A L i n t er e st t r i Ps
Wilderness River Adventures offers several unique river trips each year for guests with
special interests. These trips include: Family Adventure, for families with children aged eight
and older who want to raft with other families; Gary Ladd Trip, lead by the noted Southwest
photographer, highlights the geology of the region; Yoga Trip, allows visitors to embrace the
serene and spiritual nature of the canyon by combining yoga, taught by a certified instructor,
with rafting.

   • Houseboating “how-to”: a houseboat vacation is an exotic unknown to many
     vacationers. An article delving into the ease and endless activity options will reveal
     this unique vacation to your readers.
    • Family rafting through the Grand Canyon: rafting is a wonderful and exciting way to share
      the beauty and power of nature with children in a fun, hands-on way. Wilderness River
      Adventures’ family rafting trip is a family-only trip suitable for children eight and older.
    • Amazing reunions: this year, forget the standard hotel get-together and take your
      family’s reunion to new heights with a houseboat reunion. Not only will you be able to
      spend more quality time with your loved ones, but the wide array of activities means
      there is something for everyone and there will never be a dull moment.

      activities need not look any further! With houseboats, water sports, fishing, white
      water rafting and other outdoor activities, Lake Powell is the ideal location for a guy’s
      only getaway.
    • Southwest hub: Lake Powell is less than a three hour drive from six other national
      parks and centrally located between Las Vegas, Phoenix and Salt Lake City making it an
      excellent hub for a regional vacation.
    • Not so normal family vacations: the family vacation is buried in clichés: the road trip, the
      beach vacation, the trip to grandma’s. For families looking to shatter these stereotypes
      and create new family traditions, Lake Powell and Wilderness River Adventures to the
      rescue with a houseboat or a raft.
    • Photographing the Southwest: National Geographic photographer Gary Ladd is
      available to interview to share his insights, secrets and tips for getting the best photos
      at Lake Powell and on the Colorado River.
