On the Water
The lake level is changing every day: keep alert!
Check the National Weather Service Marine webpage for 3-day forecasts and specific information on wind, storm, and heat conditions at Lake Powell.
Visit the Bureau of Reclamation Water Operations webpage for data on lake levels, inflow, and release.
Spring is springing, so be ready for anything, including big temperature variations—sunny days and cold nights. Prepare yourself for variable weather conditions by dressing in layers and wearing a hat and sunblock. Expect wind! Northern Arizona is known for unpredictable winds, especially in spring. Afternoon storms can bring flash floods, even when the skies are blue above you. Check the forecast, especially before boating. A good place to start is the National Weather Service forecast for Page, AZ or our Weather page.
Lonely Dell Access Road Construction
The Federal Highways Administration in coordination with the National Park Service has begun work to stabilize the banks of the Paria River. This project will close the Access Road to the Lonely Dell Historic Site until work is completed, estimated June 2019. During this time hikers traversing the Paria Canyon and those who want to visit the ranch and orchard are encouraged to use alternate routes to the historic site and the 14 day parking area.
One suggested route begins 300 feet north of the Paria Bridge and enters the historic district at the Southwest corner of the orchard.
While visitors are encouraged to visit the historic site they are prohibited from entering the work zone.
Charles Hall Ferry Temporarily Closed
The ferry that runs between Bullfrog and Halls Crossing continues to be down for repairs. There is no estimated completion date. Utah travelers should know that without the ferry, State Route 276 does not connect and they must use Hwy 95 to drive north and south around Lake Powell. Find more information on the ferry page of the UDOT website.
