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.
