Suggestions for Evening

We will arrive at Lake Powell from the Grand Canyon in the late afternoon/early evening in late June. We are booked for a slot canyon tour the next day and the float trip the day after. Any suggestions for the first night? Is there a sunset cruise on the lake? Any ideas welcome. Thank you!!

If you're driving in from Grand Canyon, you're most likely coming into Lake Powell via the town of Page, which is actually in Arizona, so you may try posting your question in that forum too.

But for your first night in town, you certainly might consider a sunset cruise on the Lake. These are offered by ARAMARK's Lake Powell Resort or Antelope Point Marina. Lake Powell Resort in particular has a really nice dinner cruise which is ~ 2.5 hours long and includes several choices of entrees for dinner. Or you might just take a nice lakeside stroll. There are several paths at both marinas that are fairly easy. Antelope Point Marina is down a rather steep hill, but they have golf carts at the welcome center for staff to give you a ride down to the lake.

In either case, you will have to pay an entrance fee to get into Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Or you might consider purchasing the America the Beautiful Federal Lands Access Pass, which grants access to all National Parks and Monuments in the country for 1 year's time. The card costs $80 and can be pre-purchased online at http://store.usgs.gov or you can buy it at the first National Park Service entrance station you come to on your route.

Thanks, Kbot! We are planning on getting the America the Beautiful pass.

I'll look into that dinner cruise.
