Lake Powell and the encircling Glen Canyon National Recreation Area are located in the spectacular high desert of the southwestern United States. The National Park is protected in its natural state by legislation and encompasses over 1,900 square miles of southern Utah and northern Arizona.
The cool azure blue waters of Lake Powell meander for 186 miles through majestic sandstone rock formations, towering canyon walls and vibrant red rock buttes. The shoreline is seemingly endless in scope, stretching for nearly 2,000 miles, a distance greater than the entire Pacific coast of the United States.
