Description

Lake Powell offers excellent opportunities for houseboat vacations, fishing, and in summer when water temperatures climb to a comfortable 70-80 degrees, swimming and water skiing. Lake Powell has a myriad of side canyons that narrow to just a boat width as they twist away from the main channel and make for fascinating exploration. Most visitors are content to just cruise its waters by houseboat and spend nights on its beaches under the stars.
