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. The National Park Service offers additional 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. Kanab, Utah, is another excellent base camp for adventures on Lake Powell.
