Ker-Pow! Lake Powell pulls no punches when it comes to lakeside fun

Surrounded by red sandstone cliffs and boasting nearly 2,000 miles of shoreline, Lake Powell is the ultimate outdoor playground. Straddling Utah and Arizona, a Lake Powell vacation rental is the ideal base for a proper lake adventure. Many houses come with their own boat docks, so you can rent a boat and go sailing, fishing, or just bumble between the shores. Visit the Glen Canyon Dam, walk across Rainbow Bridge, one of the world's largest natural bridges, and finish off a perfect day on the water by relaxing with a glass of wine as the sun sets over the lake.

Messing about in boats is life in Lake Powell

As the second largest man-made lake in the US, Lake Powell is a water lover's dream. Life in Lake Powell is largely on the water, with water skiing, wakeboarding, and fishing all popular activities. Wahweap Bay is a real hub of the lake. You can rent a boat from the marina and go fishing for lake perch, or discover a hidden cove for a secluded picnic. If you'd rather not get wet, why not hit up one of the many hiking trails that lace Glen Canyon. Catering for all levels of expertise, most promise stunning elevated views of the lake.

Canyon dig it? Yes you can in Lake Powell

Lake Powell is split into North and South Lake. At North Lake Powell, the southern Utah natural landscape really shines through. Many boaters head straight for Bullfrog Bay, where the active set can water ski or wakeboard to their heart's content. A 23-mile drive south of Bullfrog Bay is Cathedral Canyon, a magnificent sandstone canyon which towers hundreds of feet above the waterline. The best way to explore it is by kayak. If your Lake Powell vacation rental is in South Lakes region, don't miss the Rainbow Bridge National Monument, one of the largest natural stone bridges in the world.

Have fun with seasons in the sun

Lake Powell is a pretty great place to be at any time of the year. The summer season is naturally the most popular, when temperatures can reach the mid-70s, promising beautiful days on the lake. But afternoons can get a bit breezy, and rain is not uncommon, even in summer. Spring is the best time for fishing fanatics, and again in fall, when the days are bright and sunny but there's a chill in the air. In winter, the temperature drops to around 25 degrees, and the lake waters get a little icy in the northern canyons.

We like big buttes and we cannot lie

Surrounded by red sandstone canyons, Lake Powell is a massive man-made reservoir on the Colorado River. Oozing rugged natural charm, it's become a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. The lake is surrounded by the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, which is best known for its red sandstone cliffs, bluffs, and buttes carved out by the meandering Colorado River. It has hundreds of different hiking trails, catering for all levels, and many with sweeping views of the lake. But you won't be alone, as the canyon is home to eagles, condors, and bats, as well as bobcats and river otters.
