A beautiful NPS campground

This spot is the premiere location for visiting Lake Powell with full amenities at your campsite.

The grounds are at the Southern end of the lake, close to Wahweap Marina, Stateline Boat Launch & Wahweap rentals.

We visited at the start of the off-season in August and experienced a very quiet park at around 50% capacity.

The spots are spacious and offer nice room for campers. Sites are paved and level with thoughtful and easy access for back-ins. Clean picnic benches, fire rings and grill made it easy to enjoy the evenings within view of the lake.

We were in a full hookup site in Loop C and the hookups were very reliable. Lots of bathrooms scattered throughout the grounds. The front office made check in east and had a decent store for forgotten necessities or souvenirs.

A walk through the campground would lead to a beachfront pathway, but the walk is not short. Probably about a full mile considering the low water levels of the lake. Instead, to reach the water, I’d recommend Lone Rock beach just down the street off highway 89.

I also highly recommend doing a bit of research to understand this area and how the lake was created. There are some hidden gem spots nearby that can help to appreciate the area and avoid the crowds at the most popular places. Carl Hayden Visitor Center was closed during our visit due to Covid, but we are hoping to visit in the future. 

Overall price is a bit high, but we knew what to expect being so close to the lake with full hookups and within the park boundary.
