National Park · Hidden Gem · Wildlife Area
Replete with plateaus, crevasses, and vast expanses of desert terrain, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area also boasts the extensive Lake Powell and its host of outdoor and water activities. Spanning 507,649 ha (1,254,429 acres) in Utah and Arizona, the area borders several national parks. Take part in water sports, such as waterskiing, inner tubing or boating. Or lounge on a rented houseboatĀ on Lake Powell, which presents a cool contrast to the stark, arid landscape. If you're bringing your own boat, you can launch it at one of the marinas along the shore. If you stay on dry land, you can explore the park's network of hiking trails through its canyons and hills. Cliff-diving into Lake Powell is strictly forbidden (and very dangerous).
