Kayak to your own secluded beach for a camping experience you'll never forget. Within paddling distance to the entrance of Antelope Canyon.

Kayak camping right on the beaches of Lake Powell and then paddling out into the stillness of the morning to hike antelope canyon is one of my all time favorite memories. 

Just across from the Antelope Point Launch Ramp is a fantastic beach with several flat areas that are perfect for tent camping. 

We rented our kayaks (info below) and while one paddled across the lake to the launch to load our camping gear in, the other drove the car with all of our supplies over to the boat launch to meet them. 

About 1/4 of a mile across the water, northwest of the boat launch, is your camping destination.

Kayak Rental: We rented our kayaks from Antelope Point Marina. They're located right on the lake so you can easily paddle over to the boat launch and load your camping gear into the kayak.

Park Fees: 1-7 day vehicle pass is $15 or we used our National Parks pass 

Parking: Available at the Antelope Point Launch Ramp

Best Night Ever!

An easy introduction to kayak camping if you haven't done it before. Tons of cool stuff to explore on the water and quick access to Antelope Canyon. This adventure is a must-do if you're in the Lake Powell area.

Such a beautiful experience!

I love this adventure.

It's not a lake, it's a reservoir

"Lake" Powell is an abomination; a stain on the Colorado Plateau and a human-inflicted wound on the Colorado River.

Antelope Canyon is perhaps the most well-known and most photographed slot canyon in the United States. But many people probably don’t realize that you can also kayak a portion of the canyon.
