Glen Canyon Dam
Construction of the 587-foot dam began in 1956 and was completed in 1963. It took 17 years before reaching "full pool" in 1980. Lake Powell stretches from the Glen Canyon Dam in Arizona up the Colorado River through Utah, past the San Juan confluence to Hite for a total of 186 miles.
A land of many ancient cultures
Petroglyphs created over 2000 years ago by the Anasazi who farmed along the Colorado River. There are many archeological sites on Lake Powell including the ruins of Defiance House in Iceberg Canyon. The Anasazi disappeared about 700 years ago and today the Navajo, Ute and Paiute Indian tribes have moved into what is now the Lake Power area.
