Lake Powell is a man-made reservoir on the Colorado River, straddling the border between Utah and Arizona, United States. Most of Lake Powell, along with Rainbow Bridge National Monument, is located in Utah. There’s a reason why over 2 million people visit Lake Powell every year; it’s beautiful.
If you don’t have access to a boat, don’t fret, you can still enjoy the cool, blue water of Lake Powell. Our favorite spot is called The Chains. If you’re coming south on 89, cross the Glen Canyon Dam Bridge and make the second left. It’s an unmarked dirt road. Once you’re on the dirt road, keep driving until you can’t. There’s a wide-open parking lot with plenty of parking. Public restrooms are available but take caution. Catch our drift?
As always, make sure you lock your vehicle. Ready to get wet? Just hike towards the lake. There is no set path. It should take about 5-10 minutes to get to the lake. Check out our video below for a better visual. Have fun out there!
