You don’t need a houseboat to experience the beauty of Lake Powell and everything it has to offer. (Of course, if you'd prefer one, check out our story on houseboating at Lake Powell.) The Wahweap Marina in Page, Arizona offers amenities to suit all travelers with plenty of lodging, dining and adventure options. From hiking to paddleboarding, there’s plenty to do and see from the shore.

Where to stay

The Lake Powell Resort at Wahweap is located right in the heart of everything. With air-conditioned rooms and a poolside bar, the resort offers family suites and pet-friendly rooms with views of the Wahweap Bay.

If sleeping under the stars is more your idea of a vacation, camp at the Wahweap Marina, only ¼ mile from the shore, offering free WiFi and access to the Lake Powell Resort’s swimming pool and hot tub. With full hookup RV and tent sites, the campground has pads for every type of camper at an affordable price.

One-Day Itinerary

7 a.m. Fuel up at Canyon Coffee with an iced latte, and grab a light breakfast or stop by the Ranch House Grille for their Hearty Ranch House Breakfast.

8 a.m. Stop by a convenience store and stock up on plenty of water and snacks. Make your way over to one of the nearby hiking trails, Dam Overlook, Hanging Garden, Horseshoe Bend, Antelope Point or the Chains.

12 p.m. Head back to the marina and have lunch on Lake Powell’s newest floating restaurant—Latitude 37. The restaurant opens just in time for Pioneer Day travelers on July 25, 2013.

1 p.m. Time to get wet and wild with rentals from Lake Powell Paddleboards, Lake-Time Watercraft Rentals or the Lake Powell Resort. Cruise through the canyons on a ski boat or waverunner or take a paddleboard out for a slower pace and get up close with Lake Powell's narrow canyons and cascading rock cliffs.

6 p.m. After a full day of adventure and sun, grab dinner at the resort's Driftwood Lounge, or go into town and try the Turf & Surf Menu at Bonkers.
