Lake Powell is actually kind of a giant playing ground for adults. Lots of Americans drive here in their trucks, a speedboat or a jet ski loaded onto the back. Lake Powell is THE spot to go on a little adventure if you’re a water sports enthusiast. Not surprisingly, it is a popular vacation destination.
Americans are like children who never grew up to be an adult. But in a good way. They kept playing outdoors, only the toys have gotten bigger. Adult Americans play with ATVs, dune buggies, off-road bikes, jet skis and speedboats. Those last two could come in handy at Lake Powell. Lake Powell isn’t your regular lake, you know. Of course, there is a vast pool of water, but all the branches are what makes Lake Powell special. There are dozens of winding creeks and rivers which you can discover. You’ll have to make sure you’re not being overly enthusiastic though, you don’t want to find yourself being stuck in a narrow creek.
If you want to rent a speedboat, jet ski, kayak, or another toy to start your adventure, this is the place to be. If you want to kick back and relax, you can also rent a houseboat, to enjoy the water and the sunset over the red dunes.
Just outside Lake Powell there’s also all sorts of beautiful scenery, so read our article on Native American reserves around Page (a nearby town).
