I am from Lake Powell (Now Utah going to school), Arizona side... despite this i don't know the lake well, especially since i usually put the boat in board then rush home to "wash the fish pee off" (as my brother used to say) If you are looking to be attached to amenities and do not wish to ESCAPE from it all and still have access to every day life i would suggest going to Wahweap or Antelope marina. These are the main marinas and are closest to civilization... well... if you can call a touristy trapish town of 8,000 people and three streetlights civilization, BUT HEY, its civilized enough for a wal-mart.
I guess i cant say that Page, (my home town) has ALL the amenities, but it is better than anywhere else near powell
OF the two marinas i would recomend Antelope. They are new and may lack some things, but it is nice and is a bit closer to town for that "civilized" convenience. If the lake is still low and you cant cross directly from wahweap bay to warm creek, then i would deffinately recomend antelope point marina because it will cut traffic time up the channel by at least 1/2 hour or more... believe me it is a pain, especially in hightened season
If you like mexican food, go to "fiesta Mexicana" in page
for italian- "Stromboli's" and/or "Belenapoli"
for unique fast food diner - "RD's" (not to be confused with RB's) and/or "The Sandwich Place"
For chinese - "Mandarin Gormete"
The "Rainbow Room" at the wahweap marina lodge is great
For steak and such "Ken's ol' West" and/or "The Dam Bar and Grill" --- you will get a kick out of this "dam" place and all their "dam" menue items... and while your their don't forget to take some "dam" pictures
... and what's even better, is it is located next to the "Dam Outlet" and the "Dam Store"
We Pageites are proudly funny about our dam... afterall, without it there would be no lake and no tourists for money and life
Besides wakeboarding, things to see include:
1. Rainbow Bridge
2. Antelope Canyon LAND BASED!!! (water side = OK, BUT Land Side = Inspirational)
3. Horse Shoe Bend (FREE, just drive and walk to it, it is south of page on the right side just a mile or two south... it is a neat bend in the beggining of what will later be named GRAND CANYON further down stream... Lake Powell basically is the head of the Grand Canyon)
