Page, Arizona

We were originally going to stay in Page for two nights, but since the Antelope Slot Canyon tours weren’t running due to COVID we decided one night was sufficient.

Page Lake Powell Campground

We stayed at Page Lake Powell Campground in a pull thru site. They had an indoor pool/hot tub which the kids loved! The campground had very little shade but it was a great location.

Horseshoe Bend

The main thing I wanted to see in Page was Horseshoe Bend and it did not dissapoint! One of the most beautiful spots I have seen. It’s $10 to park at their lot, and although we didn’t have the camper with us there is space for oversize vehicles. The hike itself is only 1.5 miles roundtrip, but take lots of water! It is extremely hot in summer and there are only two spots to stop in shade (which is helpful going back up as the walk back is uphill). It is dog friendly but we saw most people having to carry their dogs as the ground was way too hot. There is plenty of room near the overlook to take pictures and climb on the rocks. Just be careful, only part of the overlook has a railing.

Glen Canyon Dam

After Horseshoe Bend, we headed over to the Glen Canyon dam overlook. It’s a short walk to the overlook, but there are some steep rocks to navigate going downhill and the railing put in to help is ridiculously hot in summer.

On our way out of town the next morning we stumbled upon an awesome coffee truck near the post office called Brew It.. definitely worth a stop if you see it!

Our time in Page was short but we were able to see what we wanted. If you have more time it would be worth it to spend a day at Lake Powell where you can kayak or boat. Our next stop was Zion National Park, but it would be a quick trip to the North rim of the Grand Canyon if you have never been (we had just been to the Grand Canyon in February)
