Description

This Lake Powell campsite is located in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, so campsite fees and entry fees both apply. Camping was $14.00 per vehicle, see Glen Canyon website for entry fees.

The campsites are mixed from being right on the beach front, to being further back (and uphill a bit). You can essentially camp where you want, so long as you are not off the sand roads. Many ATV's on the beach, but it is not really an off road area so people are pretty respectful of the land and it is kept in good shape.

There is a decent number of pit toilets that have flush systems, but drinking water is not available at these toilets. Toilets are scattered across the camping area. washrooms with running water are a short distance away from the camping, and do include outdoor (mild temperature) showers.

Fires are allowed but need to be kept to a decent size, and many pits are already dug and lined with rocks. Wood can be purchased at the Greenhaven Estates gas station about 3 miles from the main road entrance.

The beach is great for swimming but does not get deep very fast. Many boats put in and/or pull up right on the beach, and the majority of vehicles are larger RV's and 5th wheels. Some spots however are pretty soft sand and people can get stuck - low clearance sports cars are NOT recommended.

Beautiful, family oriented primitively camping. Good place to be on a warm day!

Beautiful site. Surprisingly quiet because we where there on a Saturday night and it was busy. We didn't see anywhere where we could pay.

Amazing views both sunrise and sunset. Ticket machine with $30 for a full week was not working (Jun 23j and we couldn’t find a different way to pay. We stayed 3 nights when we only intended 1. Upper sand level good for all vehicles. Lower sand level needs all wheel drive. Lake clean. Portable toilets cleaned regularly. ATV trails. Close to Page. Would definitely come back here.

Such a cool spot! Beautiful water for swimming, 2wd vehicles can get to maybe 200m back from the water, above the really sandy stuff.

As of today, May 25, 2023, there is no attendant, no host, no potable water, and no water at the showers. The main bathroom is closed as well. There is a kiosk at the entrance to pay for use of the area. The dumpsters are on site and the dump works.

Love it here so much!! Our fave spot we’ve been too!

beaucoup d'espace. 14$us la nuit après avoir payé l'entrée pour le glen canyon(30us, valide pour 7 jours consécutifs). beaucoup de monde mi-mai, donc l'été, ça doit être complètement rempli. pas beaucoup d'eau dans le lac donc l'accès à l'eau est très loin. si vous n'avez pas de 4x4, je ne vous conseille pas de vous aventurez plus loin que le premier espace de sable rocheux.

Report Check-In

Great spot. A bit windy so we moved to the left (opposite to Page) to get less sand and more quiet spot.

Water still not available at the dump station, so we filled at the car wash near the Marathon in Page.

Lake level is very low. Expect to walk about 500ft from the camping spots (where the sand is firm) to the lake.

Planned it, prepared for it, did it!!! Happy to be amongst strangers who are in the same tribe!

Superbe endroit. Aucun souci avec notre cc de 8,50metres. Entrer par le NPS, paiement autonome à l’entrée 14$. On peut être assez près de la plage rouler sur du sable et gravillons. Très beau, très calme. Soleil et vent. A 15 miles de Page. On recommande à fond.

faire attention de ne pas aller trop près de la plage pour ne pas rester pris. si vous voulez le faire informez vous aux gens avant il y a une route meilleure a utiliser

Beautiful beach camping. 4WD needed to get to the lower part near the water and back up.

Very peaceful, amazing sunset, but we got hit by a sand storm yesterday evening, so it was a bit more challenging.

Toilets are decent, did’t check the showers, but took a rinse in the lake.

Friendly tip: key to driving in sand is deflating your tires about 50% and going faster than normal. DO NOT STOP, keep going and give it the gas. We stayed here one night and made it in and out just fine and we are driving a truck with truck bed camper. We saw tons of ppl get stuck and we helped them air down and all three got unstuck and drove right on out all on their own. This is a wonderful place to stay! Just make sure you head up to Pilot or Maverick gas station and fill your tires back up. :) happy camping!

SAND SAND SAND.

Unless you’re in an off roader or local don’t think about going down to the water - sand gets extremely deep. Beside the sand and wind the views are incredible. Haven’t gotten a chance to check out water will do tomorrow.

Don't come here if there's a high wind warning lol. 60mph winds and a sandstorm, we got our little bus stuck in about 8 inches of sand. Beautiful spot though!!

LOVE this place. Would stay for a week if we had time.
Do be careful in the sand though… We did get stuck.

Awesome and uge beach dispersed campground! Leveled and big rig friendly! Cell network is ok but because it’s on the border of Utah and Arizona, the clock changes by itself back and forth on cell phones! But nevertheless, recommend this awesome spots!

We had plenty of room to park our 27 foot tow behind trailer at one higher level than water level. According to others, the place was not busy, but it still seemed like a lot of people were there. There were lots of trails from camp to OHV. Great Verizon service. Sewer dump was open, but water was already winterized. Showers closed for winter. A bit of trash by the water, our dog partially severed his toe and received a large cut by stepping on a chunk of broken glass. Be careful and wear shoes on the beach.

Report Check-In

Really rad place to camp. $14 for the night but cut kiosk didn’t print my ticket after payment. No hassle by rangers though. Multiple ridges on the sand for camping. Sand is pretty loose in spots on beach and road to access it so 2WD vehicles need to maintain a healthy pace to get through it. Locals do a lot of boating and jet skiing on the lake. Side by sides cruising around most the day but even with them and a decent wind I didn’t notice much sand in the air. Water was cool and wonderful for a morning swim. 10/10 recommend.

The other reviews listed are fair. when we arrived the wind made it so miserable the sand was blasting and we could not stay. The sight is well maintained and had people attending to every part. Powell lake is amazing and this may be the cheapest easiest access for someone. I've visited all the other areas of the lake and this is by far the best middle ground for convienece and price.

Dope spot off the highway with beach front camping. Took my Subi Impreza out on the soft sand no issues, and ended up staking a spot closer to the bathrooms. No running water, pit toilets.

Report Check-In

Lake Powell is beautiful for sure. Very quiet at night for the most part. A few random people driving around past midnight and shining lights in cars twice in the week we were there. Really awesome people we met but VERY crowded. Bathrooms, outdoor showers, potable water still off as of 4/9/21. Water level extremely low. Much lower than described or in photographs. Also if you paddle, bring a Pfd and check wind forecasts. Saw way too many people who were stranded in the wind on the water in need of rescue by either rangers or people in motorized watercraft. The water is very cold and hypothermia is quick to set in.

Lovely place! Quite spacious and great time of the year to stay.

This is a beautiful spot. I was worried about the sand but did okay in a 25' class C with a toad.

It's $14, plus the price to get into the park if you don't have a pass, but there was no one at the gate and the kiosk wasn't working. I made a legit effort to find someone to take my money, but could not. I believe they are still operating as if in the off season.

Important: water is seasonal, and as of March 26, 2021, the water is OFF. There is a dump, but no fresh water. Wahweap campground a few miles down the road has water, dump, laundry, and propane, no charge for the dump/ fill.

My dog went in the lake for about 5 seconds yesterday and has been sick all day. I don't know if the two are related, but thought I'd mention that.

Came here late had annual NP pass. I think it’s 14 bucks to camp. Huge location on the beach or elevated spots prob good for 2wd vehicles. B ash is very soft in spots be careful. There was one other person there this night a day I woke up

Awesome spot by the water. Vault toilets are a hike unless you camp farther up the beach. the father out you go, the deeper the sand gets. Generators are going until 10PM, but like someone said it gets quiet after.

Report Check-In

$14. But it’s really nice out here so thought I’d spend the night because other BLM spots needed 4x4. It’s really easy to get here and park by the beach. Only a quarter mile of dirt road with fairly compact sand. The closer you get to the beach the softer the sand gets so use your own judgment. It’s a huge area so there’s plenty of spots with panoramic views. Gorgeous sunset and sunrise. I’m here in November and it’s pretty quiet, about 5 other campers (very dispersed). Beautiful night skies! Good cell reception (Verizon 3 LTE bars).

Great for road trip. Lots of people, but space.

This beach is awesome and has some stunning views. The water is such a pretty light blue. A lot of people when we first arrived but once it started to cool down all the day users left. The main facilities are up a bit from the beach but they are so much nicer than the toilets on the beach and they have the showers up there. Only thing I would warn people about is that it can get SUPER windy, be prepared for sand to go everywhere if you leave a window open!

Super nice place. Unfortunately people don’t really accept quiet hours and let generators run much longer than 10 pm. But after they stopped, it’s super quiet. Perfect spot.

Awesome beach camping at Lake Powell that is easily accessible. Be aware... all but 1 of the toilets are locked up for winter. And the one that is unlocked is overflowing with human waste.

Stayed here for two nights. Sand gets soft towards the shoreline, and in some parts of the road to get to it, but there are some spots also before the beach access. $14 fee/night, flush toilets along the beach. Can get pretty busy.

We spent two days on the shore. No party people there. Very quite evenings & nights (from Sat to Mon).

Stayed here one night in mini van. It was perfectly fresh, quiet and dark night, slept like a baby! And the morning was amazing too, totally recommend. We stayed in the upper parking lot cause our car did not have 4x4 and we were afraid we would get stuck in the dunes (as one other car coming from the beach in the middle of the night).
If you want to stay overnight (after 8pm) you pay 14 dollars. Cold outside showers available and toilets with running water. (the Annual National Park card does not apply here)

After failing to make it to the other iOverland spot in the next cove over, we came here based on all the incredible reviews. Well worth the $14, we got a spot right on the water with plenty of space from our neighbors. Dogs loved swimming in the lake, we loved watching the sunset over the water... definitely the place to come if you’re stopping between Monument Valley and Zion.

Incredible site for only 14$ coyotes running around but you can drive and camp anywhere on the beach. We even pulled up to a spot with left fire wood enough for a nice fire. Amazing views and much cheaper than the sites in the park nearby

Lots of RVs at the beach (nice water but cold). Huge area full of sand and some bushes to hide from strong winds (eg with a rooftop tent). Further away from the shoreline there are lots of well separated slots available too choose from. Pit toilets near the shoreline and access road. One toilet/shower block with drinking fountain and parking available. Be aware: showers are not only cold but outside (you have to shower in bathing suits with no privacy).

Pretty rad to find a place to camp on the lake front beach. We were less than 20 feet from the water, and aside from RV generators, it was quite quiet. Please be sure to respect the beach and pick up your trash though, it appears in places some people were trying to hide it in their camp fire pits.
