Located with the Glen Canyon Recreation Area, families wanting to be as close to the lake as possible, will want to stay at Lake Powell Resort. The National Park Recreation fees do apply though for those staying at the resort, so do keep that in mind when planning your trip. The hotel is located at Wahweap Marina, right at the shoreline of the lake. This is ideal for families wanting to take a boat trip or participate in water activities, as many can be booked right at the activities desk inside the lobby. Additionally, there are multiple restaurants and a large gift shop on site. And, families will love the pool with scenic views of Lake Powell.
All rooms come equipped with a TV, Keurig coffee brewer, mini refrigerator, and hair dryer. Rollaway beds and cribs are available on request. Traditional king or two queen bed rooms are 300 square feet with an additional 90 square feet of patio or balcony. Different views are available (lake view for an additional cost per night). Families needing a bit more space might consider a Junior Suite (at 450 square feet) or the largest accommodations on site – the Lake View Suite (600 square feet, which includes separate bedroom & living space).

We stopped here hoping to catch the ferry but was told that we should have made reservations. So we decided to have lunch with a view of the lake instead. WE entered the dining room and they would only let us sit at a two top near the window even tho there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. We were a little put out about that. The lunch was ok not what I would have expected for the prices they charged.
Lake Powell Resort is a wonderful place to stay. The staff is friendly and the rooms clean and well accommodated. The restaurant had hearty meals with a beautiful view!
We were a group of 50 on tour and were easily accommodated.
They have two pools that are heated and a lovely fire pit for gazing into the night.
Overall a great visit.
