Lake Powell Weekend Adventure

Welcome to your ultimate weekend adventure guide from Scottsdale to Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and Lake Powell! Get ready for an unforgettable journey filled with stunning landscapes and exhilarating experiences. Let’s dive into the details of this exciting trip.

Lake Powell

Let’s head to Lake Powell, where adventure awaits! When it comes to lodging, you have several options. Renting a houseboat and sleeping on the water is a fantastic choice for a unique experience. Alternatively, you can stay in the Lake Powell Resort hotel located on the lake or camp at the  Wahweap RV Campground with full hookups.

To fully enjoy Lake Powell, consider renting a speedboat along with your houseboat. This allows you to easily navigate the lake and dock your houseboat at one of the picturesque beaches, where you can spend the majority of your weekend. Don’t forget to explore the hidden gems of the lake with kayaks, reaching areas that boats can’t access.

For an extraordinary day trip, hop on a speedboat and make your way across the lake to hike and witness the awe-inspiring Rainbow Bridge in Utah. Remember to bring an extra gas can for refueling during this adventure. Hike times may vary based on the water level.

It’s worth noting that Lake Powell’s water level is decreasing, making it advisable to embark on this trip sooner rather than later. The beauty of the lake and the serenity of the canyons will make you feel like you have the entire place to yourself. Stay hydrated in the sun by packing plenty of water and savor the breathtaking views as you explore this stunning destination.

Remember to check local guidelines and weather conditions before your trip, and always respect the natural environment. Get ready for an incredible weekend adventure that will leave you with lifelong memories. Enjoy your journey to Antelope Canyon and the wonders of Lake Powell!
