Boondocking at Lake Powell

We are going to Lake Powell for the first time, and will stay at an RV Park. While there we will explore the area for some nice boondocking sites for future trips. Does anyone have a favorite location, or is that like fishing holes and mushroom spots....a secret.

NMBeemer, Our ultimate goal is visiting throughout the West, so I'm interested in the forthcoming responses as well. So far, it looks as if the 'secrets' have it!...insert cricket sounds here. Bob

You didn't say if you were going to Bullfrog or Wahheap. I have always had to launch the boat with the MH so I mostly stayed at the CG @ Bullfrog without hookups. because it was near the boat ramp. I did see a lot of campers on shore towards the north end of Bullfrog Bay and also just a few miles east of the boat ramp. They seemed like nice places but there was no place to launch the boat with a CL A MH.
Have fun. I just sold my boat so I'm jealous.
I've only taken the boat to Wahheap.

We will start off at Wahweap, and will have our kayaks with us. I was looking via Google maps (view from above) and just North of Wahweap were a bunch of motorhomes along the water. This will be a scouting trip, and will take in as much as we can.

Just west of Wahweap, heading on the highway towards Kanab, is an area called Lone Rock Beach (8 miles ish from Wahweap). This is a primative camping area. There is a fee station. You traverse the sand and must realize that you can become stuck if you want to get close to the water. The Park Service does bulldoze sections to make it easier to get to some areas close to the water, but all stucks are at your own risk. Been going there since 1976 and love it. We go in July/August and that time of year you have to prepare yourself for high wind, monsoons, warm days, beautiful days, hot days, cool days,,,,,,you get the idea. It can be many things during monsoon season in the southwest. They do have a dump station near the entrance and there are showers/bathroom facilities away from the water. During the summer it is usually very crowded.

We have friends who stay there into October and the crowds are pretty minimal and reduce significantly after Labor Day.
