Oak Creek Canyon is a great spot for exploring and hiking off of Buoy 51 on Lake Powell. At the back of the canyon, hike up the Navajo Stairs (otherwise known as Moki Steps). You will be rewarded with an amazing view of pillaring sandstone towers!

The hike from Navajo Steps will take approximately 45 minutes each way. Campsites in Oak Bay are a premium choice. This area of Lake Powell can be accessed from Wahweap Marina and Bullfrog Marina.
