Primitive camping

In addition to the developed campgrounds, primitive camping is also allowed on the shoreline of Lake Powell everywhere except in the marinas. No permit or fee is required, but a good map is necessary so you know where the side canyons are, the hiking spots, marinas, and other landmarks. All campsites are required to have a portable toilet unless toilets are available on the vessel or are within 200 yards of the campsite. Find more information about primitive camping on the shores of Lake Powell, including useful Glen Canyon maps and fee information.


Groceries and supplies

Wahweap and Bullfrog marinas offer full visitor services and supplies. Page, Arizona also has everything you might need. In the northern region of the recreation area, Hite has a small store with groceries and supplies.
