Lake Powell is situated between Utah and Arizona and is located on the Colorado River, near Page, Arizona.
Lake Powell is the second largest man-made reservoir in the United States. Wahweap marina is the place to launch boats.
Lake Powell is beautiful but it is also controversial. Lake Powell was caused by the flooding of Glen Canyon by the Glen Canyon Dam. Environmentalists today still think the Dam should disappear and the river should run freely.
Lake Powell is named for John Wesley Powell who explored the river in three wooden boats in 1869. He was an American Civil War veteran.
When the Glen Canyon Dam was built, it cost $155 million and 18 lives. Rainbow Bridge is a must see on Lake Powell and is the world's largest natural arch.
