The Best of Lake Powell

I just returned from a great weekend trip to Lake Powell. The weather was perfect, conditions at the lake are superb and we had an enjoyable time.

My group included 3 people who had never been to the lake and so we did some sight seeing, trying to show them highlights. We went out of Bullfrog and boated uplake one day, then downlake the next. I pulled people on play tubes and we enjoyed frolicking in the water.

So, here’s my question: Where are the most scenic spots on the lake?

I wanted to show these people the best of Lake Powell and so we hit some of my favorites (my list is below). The lake is huge and you can never see it all in one trip. I bought a season pass and so I'll be going back.

I'm curious to hear about other people's favorite places on the lake. Join the discussion by submitting a comment.

Dave's Lake Powell favorites:
- Most awe-inspiring: Rainbow Bridge
- Most scenic on the entire lake: Padre Bay
- Second most scenic on the lake: Escalante arm
- Most scenic near Wahweap: Navajo Canyon
- Most scenic near Bullfrog: Lost Eden Canyon
- Best hike: West Canyon
- Best fishing: canyons on the San Juan arm
- Second best fishing: Good Hope Bay area

Best camping: That varies from trip to trip, depending on the lake's level.
