Alerts & Conditions
Fire Restrictions in EffectGlen Canyon and surrounding public lands are under Stage 1 Fire Restrictions. Fire use is prohibited, except campfires in provided rings or structures at campgrounds and picnic areas. Campfires also permitted below the high water mark of the lake.
Watch Your Step on Lake Powell BeachesQuagga mussel shells are sharp and tiny. They will cut through skin, clothes, and paws. Please wear water shoes and put booties on your pets when recreating on beaches.
Summer is upon us. We had plenty of 100+ degree days in June. Temperatures are high, but conditions are still variable. Prepare yourself by dressing in layers and wearing a hat and sunblock. Northern Arizona is known for unpredictable winds. Check the forecast, especially before boating. A good place to start is the National Weather Service forecast for Page, AZ.

Have Patience in Busy Settings
We know you are excited to explore the park, and so are all your fellow visitors. This can make for busy and hectic conditions on roads, in parking lots, on launch ramps, and on the water. Keep yourself and everyone safe by driving with caution, respecting speed limits, and staying aware of your surroundings.
There are plenty of spots for solitude in Glen Canyon's backcountry and Lake Powell's coves, but expect crowded conditions in popular frontcountry areas. Have patience and enjoy the journey.
