The Lake Powell reservoir, created by the damming of the Colorado River at Glen Canyon, is a million-acre aquatic playground. With 2,000 miles of twisting, red rock coastline, the area is full of natural wonders and Native American ruins. Live abroad your houseboat or go camping, open-air, in one of the many private inlets around the lake to take advantage of endless activities like boating, kayaking, and fishing.
