Lake Powell is one of the most stunning locations in the country and truly offers an adventure option for everyone. You can spend your days hiking, rent kayaks or paddle boards, or head out on a boat tour with one of Lake Powell Resort and Marina's expert guides. Once you wear yourself out with a day of fun in the sun, you've got fantastic options for catching your beauty sleep; sleep under the stars, rent a houseboat, or settle in for a luxurious night's sleep in one of the beautiful lakeside hotels

One of our Explorers Austin Jackson spent a week exploring the canyons, beaches, and trails all around Lake Powell and he came back with some absolutely stunning images! Take a look below and we're sure you'll be ready to plan your trip to Lake Powell ASAP!
