Measuring in at 1,560 feet long and 710 feet high, The Glen Canyon dam is the second largest dam on the Colorado River. Located upstream from the Grand Canyon National Park, this dam is responsible for much of the waterborne outdoor recreation the southwest has become famous for. The dam is also home to a power plant which generates approximately 6 percent of Arizona’s total electricity, and 13 percent of Utah’s.
Tours of the dam are conducted by the Glen Canyon Natural History Association and generally last about 45 minutes. Each tour is limited to 20 people. Tours are available on a first-come first-served basis, or by reservations made up to 24 hours in advance.
The Glen Canyon Dam is located just north of Page, Arizona. From Page, head north on US-89 for approximately 1 mile, then turn right on Dam Access Road and follow signs.
