Ask almost any Utah resident their favorite place to go during the summer, and the answer will usually come back: Lake Powell. Named for the explorer John Wesley Powell, notable for his exploration of the western United States, Lake Powell is a manmade reservoir created in 1963 with the Glen Canyon Dam. Like any other lake, it offers outdoor fun like boating, fishing, and camping. Unlike any other lake, it is located among the beautiful red rock cliffs of Southern Utah and Arizona.
