Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

Search Boulder Utah

This recreation area extends along the Colorado River from the Grand Canyon, to Canyonlands National Park.

The Glen Canyon Dam generates power that is distributed to cities throughout the West; the dam's main purpose being water storage, but its recreational facilities run a strong second. Water skiing, boating, marinas and campsites can be found all along 186-mile-long Lake Powell. The area presents a display of scenery that takes in hidden canyons, coves and inlets, and towering red cliffs.

The Carl Hayden Visitor Center, located next to Hwy 89 and Glen Canyon Bridge in Page, Arizona, features exhibits relating to the dam and bridge, as well as guided tours. The Bullfrog Visitor Center, located at the Bullfrog Marina in Utah, exhibits cultural history pertaining to the canyon. The Navajo Bridge Interpretive Center, on Hwy 89A near Lees Ferry, features a walking bridge over the Colorado River at Marble Canyon, and outdoor exhibits about the area's historic river crossings.
