Definitely worth going to - free parking and free viewing. Amazing views, and very photogenic. some steps/slopes to walk down to from the parking area, but nothing too strenuous for anyone who's half-fit!

The Navajo sandstone that surrounds the area is stunning. You can visit the museum next to the dam. And walk on the bridge to take pictures.

We happened upon this spot on our drive from Utah to Arizona. So glad we did! Great views, beautiful bridge (I love bridges). Guided tours available. Great gift shop. Worth the stop!

The fence along the bridge has very friendly opening for cameras to poke outside of it for a better view of photos.

Glen Canyon Dam Overlook is a great place to relax and be at peace. You can see the dam to your right and Colorado River to your left. We spent our time sitting on the rocks and watching the river. Plug the location into Google...More

An absolutely fantastic look out point onto the Colorado river and the Glen Canyon Dam. Walk to the left for a totally unobstructed view. Fantastic. Quiet and romantic for an evening stroll or sunset. Awesome!
