Packing for your Lake Powell houseboat vacation is easy when you know exactly what to bring. From food to sunscreen to board games, we’ve formulated a general packing list for you to use to plan your trip.
Food. Plan out each meal for the entire duration of your trip, including snacks. Pro tip: Premake and freeze a few dishes for less work when you’re out on the houseboat. Don’t forget to bring your favorite spices from home, the houseboat only provides salt and pepper.
Water. Being outdoors = higher water consumption. Consider bringing gallon jugs of water as well as individual water bottles to stay hydrated.
Sunscreen. Covering your skin with sunscreen lotion and protective clothing is highly recommended. The last thing you want on vacation is a massive sunburn.
Beach Towels. Bring along a towel for each person to use after swimming in the lake. Damp beach towels also make a cool seat cover.
Board Games. You and your crewmates are going to be spending a lot of time together, so break out the board games for some added entertainment after a day of fun on the lake.
Toiletries. As with any trip, pack your essentials including:
Light Clothing. Lightweight, light-colored cotton t-shirts and coverups are ideal for a lake vacation. Your ultimate goal is to stay cool and comfortable.
Sunglasses. You’ll want to bring a pair or two that you don’t mind losing, just in case you misplace them or they fall off into the water.
Hat. Dust off your full brimmed beach hat for this trip.
Hiking shoes. Don’t miss out on some of Lake Powell’s incredible hikes because you forgot your hiking shoes.
Sandals. Flip flops are perfect for the occasion.
Phone Chargers. Although you won’t be on your phone much during your trip, it’s always safe to pack a few backup chargers so you don’t lose power completely.
