Lake Powell is part of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. It takes up part of Arizona and southern Utah. Utah hotels near Lake Powell can be found scattered from north to south, with the southern end being the most active for one of the major activities on Lake Powell—houseboating. Boating, beaches, and a network of sandstone canyons provide water sports of all kinds. The surrounding mountains have spectacular hiking trails, too, with views of the water and cliffs.
