Utah is home to numerous national parks, including Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Zion. Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is also a popular spot for backpackers, boaters and hikers. The area’s dominating feature is Lake Powell, a massive artificial lake created in the 1960s by the construction of the Glen Canyon dam.
