Your Glen Canyon Adventure Starts Here

 
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, at the heart of the "Grand Circle," provides unique and refreshing opportunities for travel-weary visitors. Stay for an hour and take a tour of Glen Canyon Dam, or stay for a week to camp on the shores of Lake Powell in a houseboat. With 1.2 million acres of golden cliffs, lush hanging gardens, impossibly narrow slot canyons, and the brilliant blue paradox of Lake Powell to visit, you may find yourself coming back again and again. But if this is going to be your first visit to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, these pages can help you to plan your amazing Glen Canyon adventure.

Glen Canyon can be treacherous! Take care of yourself. Your safety is our first concern.
