Lake Powell, Utah

Lake Powell and kayaking antelope canyon in Utah. Lake Powell is a definite "do whatever it takes to get here" trip. Absolutely stunning. This is one of 4 places I return to again and again (others are Florida, San Francisco, Las Vegas) Thousands of acres of crystal clear rivers, lakes, streams, gulches, mountains, cliffs, rock formations, and desert plants running through huge canyons. We put kayaks in at the Wahweap ½ mile long boat ramp, kayaked through the canyons, snorkeled in the 15 feet plus visibility water, then lay on the big flat rocks to "warm back up".

Above: Views from the boat through endless canyons and 1,000's of miles of shoreline. Forget Europe. Forget the Bahamas. Forget Fiji. Forget Hawaii. Get here, it's easy and you can stay as long as you can handle it with a Vanabode. They even have seasonal jobs here while you live out of your Vanabode.

Another way to experience this is with a large group of friends, rent a sleep-14 person houseboat, complete with 4 jet skis, for $5,000 - $8,000 a week, split the cost. If you can only do one boat based remote trip in your lifetime do LAKE POWELL! Many experienced travelers say there is nothing like this in the entire world. Do the antelope canyon portion also. We have dry camped here before but you get so tired by days end and the evenings are so hot we usually pay the $20 - $30 a night for rv hookup. Visit ONLY in the summer when the water is warm enough to swim in. Easy to do with kids, no biting insects.

Lake Powell is an absolute blast. We had so much fun kayaking into narrow channels to see what we can find. When the water stopped we parked the kayaks and walked about a mile through Antelope Canyon. Click to see mud fight pictures. Travel info - Map location of Lake Powell.
