Glen Canyon National Recreation Area Site Pass

Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, at the heart of the "Grand Circle" of Southwest national parks, provides unique and refreshing opportunities for travel-weary visitors. Stay for an hour and take a tour of Glen Canyon Dam, or stay for a week to camp on the shores of Lake Powell in a houseboat. With 1.25 million acres of golden cliffs, lush hanging gardens, impossibly narrow slot canyons, and the brilliant blue paradox of Lake Powell to visit, you may find yourself coming back again and again.
