Beach Camp On Lake Powell's Lone Rock Beach

Beach camping! Beautiful scenery. Warm water. No reservations. Drive right on to the beach and pick a spot or sleep in your car. Enjoy fiery sunsets and beautiful sunrises.

Just twelve miles north of Page, Arizona on Highway 89 across the Utah border, Lone Rock Beach is a great open beach where you can drive right up and make camp anywhere you like. There is a $10 fee to get on the beach and it can get a little busy during the summer, but it seems like you can always find a nice spot to call your own. Eight miles south is Wahweap Marina where you can put in boats and jet-skis.When we rolled in it was dark and had no idea what to expect but we woke up to an amazing sunrise over the red rock canyons and beautiful Lake Powell. Definitely going again!

Getting there is super easy - look for the turn off of Highway 89 onto Lone Rock Beach Road just before or just past the Utah/Arizona border, depending on which direction your driving.

Beach Camp On Lake Powell's Lone Rock Beach Reviews

Really cool experience as it was my first time beach camping. You will need a 4x4 car to get to the shoreline. There are a lot of cars but it wasn’t bad in terms of noise. The sunrise is the best part of coming out here!

Stayed at lone rock several times. Always on the beach. Great until the wind comes up. Usually quite crowded. Now the is no water so probably pretty empty.

We arrived in the area after a long drive and when we realized that we could camp there, it was a no brainer. The sunset was amazing by the lake, it was really peaceful with few people here and there and a perfect spot to just sit, relax, regroup and get ready for the rest of our journey. Some facilities like toilets were available, so this was also a bonus.

Wonderful spot to camp and spend the day swimming. You can launch straight from lone rock beach which is convenient if you've rented a kayak or paddle board. It should be noted that in the summer months this spot is pretty popular so make sure to arrive early to secure a nice spot.

Will definitely camp here again. It was $14 to camp overnight when we stayed. We pulled in when it was dark and didn't want to risk getting stuck in the sand in our 2wd van. So we camped a bit off the shore. Once morning hit, we were able to see where the deep sand spots were and maneuvered around them to get closer to the shore to enjoy our morning.

I was there I think on a holiday weekend and it was quite, quite crowded. But because of the undeveloped nature of the spot there was still a lot of empty space. Hope it doesn't get overdeveloped in the future because it was a great spot to pull up and spend a night.
