Why We Love Lake Powell for Summer Vacation

The best summer vacations combine natural beauty with adventure and time to relax with the people you love the most. Noting this, it's easy to see why houseboating on Lake Powell is a popular summer vacation spot for people of all ages. 

Here's a few reasons why we love summer vacations on Lake Powell:

You never have to leave the lake.

Houseboating has long been a preferred pastime among Lake Powell visitors, but now the options are better than ever. Located just 12 miles away from Page, the Antelope Point Marina is the most convenient houseboat marina on the lake. Boaters can easily board their preferred vessel and immediately begin soaking up the stunning vistas of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. 

There's endless fishing.

While enjoying a houseboat vacation, you'll want to be in a place where the fish are biting. Luckily, Lake Powell is the perfect destination for fishermen of all skill levels. From those who are just learning how to bait the hook to those who have been casting off for decades, this lake is full of fishing surprises. Lake Powell is home to both smallmouth and largemouth bass as well as crappie, bluegill, catfish, walleye and northern pike. 

You can visit the Rainbow Bridge National Monument.

You can take an excursion to the Rainbow Bridge National Monument, which is one of the most awesome sights in the region. As one of the largest natural bridges in the world, it should definitely be included on your Lake Powell itinerary.

You can take an afternoon to go hiking on dry land.

While you'll likely never tire of your luxurious houseboat amenities or all of the fun that you can have on the water, you still may be interested in spending some time on dry land. Hiking throughout the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area will provide you with a chance to stretch your legs, catch a glimpse of local wildlife, and enjoy an adventure.
