This Gorgeous Resort is Right on the Shore of Lake Powell

If you're looking for a relaxing retreat in the desert, this is the place for you.

By: Liam McNally + Save to a List

It's about this time of year the dry heat of the desert starts to sounds really appealing. With its warm waters, beautiful sandstone formations, and endless supply of canyons to explore, Lake Powell is one of the best adventure vacation destinations in the whole Southwest. Located in the Wahweap Marina with immediate access to all of the best adventures in the area, Lake Powell Resort provides the perfect balance of comfort and outdoor exploring. 

Start your day off right with breakfast with a view, then take your pick of hiking, waterskiing, kayaking, photography, and so much more. 

You could spend weeks exploring the lake and barely scratch the surface! The resort offers guided trips and equipment rentals for any activity you may want to try.

There's no better way to wind down after a day of adventure than a nice meal and a comfy spot to watch the sunset. After indulging in incredible, on-site dining, kick back on the pool patio for an evening drink and let the desert sky work its magic. 

Bonus for those with four-legged friends: pet-friendly rooms are available!
