Page, Arizona is one of the youngest communities in the United States. It is in Northeastern Arizona, approximately four hours north of Phoenix and four and half hours east of Las Vegas. The town began in 1957 as a housing camp for workers building the Glen Canyon Dam. In 1958, some 24 square miles of Navajo Nation land were exchanged for a larger tract in Utah, and Government Camp, later called Page, was born. During the seven years required to construct the Dam, Page was a federal municipality. It became an incorporated town in 1975, and is now home to more than 7,000 people.
Now, for the water enthusiasts, Page has two bodies of it offering all the beauty and adventure you could want. Two marinas can launch you onto Lake Powell and Colorado River rafting begins at the base of the towering Glen Canyon Dam. Kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing are available as well.
If you’re prone to stay on land, unbelievable beauty awaits you in the slot canyons. The Antelope Slot Canyons, Secret Canyon or Canyon X can be toured for an up-close view of fascinating color combinations. Tower Butte is available to tour via helicopter and the internationally famous iconic photo op Horseshoe Bend is two miles away. Page’s Rim Trail encircles the town for an eleven-mile hike or mountain bike workout.
Then there are the sites of Page itself. The John Wesley Powell Museum and Visitor Center can provide tales of adventurer Powell who rode the rapids of the Colorado into the Grand Canyon. Play golf on one of the nation’s most unique courses at the Lake Powell National Golf Course. Night time entertainment can be found at Into the Grand, offering Native American food, dancing and music.
