The original movie set was built in 1963 for Sergeants Three with Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr and Frank Sinatra and then was used again for Clint Eastwoods - The Outlaw Josey Wales - Lake Powell area was known for many movies ranging from The Planet of the Apes with Charlton Heston, Greatest Story Ever Told and Evolution with David Duchovny and Dan Aykroyd and Julianne Moore - and TV shows - Death Valley Days, Gunsmoke and Daniel Boone.

The set was hit both with floods and fire but it is always nice to go to a scene where special movies were made - you just have to plan a visit when the weather is good - the dirt road can be inassessible during rain.  The entire area has narrows and cliffs and a nice spot to just enjoy the old old West.
