We will be at Lake Powell July 23-26 for a quick trip. I know the water is up, the cut is open, but any other things to be aware of? We plan to camp +/- Dangling Rope area, not sure yet. Thanks for the help.

West Canyon (check the map) isn't to far from Dangling Rope. We setup there for nearly a week once and it was great, stunning view. You can boat into the end of the canyon too and hike a ways up the slot canyon.

Thanks. We had the houseboats there a couple of years ago and it was great. We will probably check that out. Two years ago we stayed on the Escalante and it was AMAZING, hardly saw anyone in 10 days!!

There is a little driftwood but nothing major. I was there camping for 4 days over July 4th weekend. The cut is about 30' deep and plenty of width for multiple boats, houseboats and tour boats. We camped in the back arm of Cookie Jar and it was great. The beach was huge, plenty of nice sand and great location for a houseboat of two. You could even set the houseboats 100' apart if you chose to.

We usually camp in Oak Bay (MM 53) but the nice beaches there have been real limited due to the high water (which is a great thing).

Going back again in September :)

Have fun and be safe.
