Grand Canyon Travel Guide from Page

Traveling from Page, AZ to the Grand Canyon

Page, Arizona lies along a small strip of Lake Powell's 1900 miles of beautiful shoreline. Built during the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam, Page is the tourist hub for Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Lake Powell. Page and all of its activities are also a short 2.5-hour drive for visitors driving to the Grand Canyon. Outside of town, Lake Powell and the surrounding Canyon Country offer a wonderland of activities for the outdoor enthusiast.  Along with the large motorboats and houseboats, Lake Powell has great fishing, scuba diving, and some of the best Kayaking in the world.  Glen Canyon, Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, the Navajo Reservation and other nearby parks have some of the most unique and picturesque canyons in the world.  Whether you want a mellow hike through Antelope Canyon, or a canyoneering adventure, this magical country is a great place to visit on the way to Grand Canyon National Park.

A small town of about 8,000 residents, Page has most creature comforts one would need, including a few grocery stores, restaurants, and a good variety of hotels. Aramark runs all of the boating and hotels concessions services on Lake Powell and Glen Canyon, so they are the primary lodging and houseboat rental source.  Although tourism centered around Lake Powell and the Grand Canyon is the main industry, the Glen Canyon Dam and a local power plant produce huge amounts of power for the Southwest Region. Aside from the surrounding public lands and Lake Powell, Page is also bordered by the Navajo Nation who makes up much of its population and has a large influence on the community and some great tourist attractions close to Grand Canyon National Park. Read the guide below to learn more about travel from Page to the Grand Canyon, or check out our Page, AZ map to see all the nearby destinations and attractions.
