How YOU can get involved with ACMNP in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area – Lake Powell

Information About The Park

Glen Canyon was once a deep, winding canyon in the middle of an untouched desert plain. With the completion of the Glen Canyon Dam in 1963, the Colorado River was transformed into pristine Lake Powell. Extending 186 miles, with nearly 2,000 miles of shoreline, Lake Powell has become a top destination for boaters. The blue of the sky and lake is separated by a red ribbon of sandstone cliffs, monoliths, canyons, and even the world’s largest natural bridge—Rainbow Bridge! Whether you stay on the shore and explore into the heart of this dynamic landscape by foot, or jump on a powerboat, houseboat, kayak, or tour boat to explore the 90% of boat-only accessible land, Glen Canyon surely will not disappoint!

Popular Destinations

  • Rainbow Bridge
  • Ice Cream Canyon
  • Antelope Canyon
  • Horseshoe Bend
  • Glen Canyon Dam
  • Grand Canyon, Zion, and Bryce are all nearby


The large amount of water supplied by Lake Powell, paired with the vast desert plains, makes this region a perfect location to find desert bighorn sheep, puma, coyote, great blue herons, vultures, roadrunners, and even rattlesnakes!

“With all of its sandstone rock formations, ranging from arches, natural bridges, deep canyons, delicate slot canyons, hoodoos, to sand dunes found in southern Utah and northern Arizona, this area is aptly described as “God’s sandbox”, where God got to have fun making a wide diversity of landscapes all out of petrified sand!” –Tobyn, Glen Canyon 2013
