Leave No Trace & Lake Powell

Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas wants to preserve the beauty of the park and lake for generations to come. In order to help us achieve that, we have partnered with Leave No Trace to better educate our guests on how they can minimize their footprint at the park.

Clean your Boat

When participating in activities on water that include any sort of a watercraft, it is possible to unknowingly transport aquatic invasive species. To learn more check this out, and remember to always clean, drain and dry your boat.

Track your Trash

While on a boat, it’s easier to lose track of loose clothing or that snack wrapper that wasn’t properly zipped away in a bag. Pay special attention to all of your belongings so that they don’t get blown into the lake and become accidental trash.

Don't Make a Mark

Please enjoy the incredible surroundings at Lake Powell without leaving your mark. Sandstone graffiti affects the ecosystem found at the lake and is also disrupting to other visitors.

Respect your Surroundings

Lake Powell has many culturally significant sites that are sacred to different cultures in the area. Damaging, vandalizing or taking artifacts while at Lake Powell means that these communities lose a piece of their identity and cultural heritage. If you happen to find something cool, snap a picture instead.

Think Before you Snap

Green National Park Travel Tips

When visiting our National Parks and Forests, one can’t help but be awed by the magnificence of nature it all its glory. It’s up to us to keep it pristine, and every traveler can take steps to do their part when they visit. Read on for our top tips for sustainable travel.

Recycle and Compost

We offer convenient recycling collection bins throughout our operations. Be sure to take the extra steps to dispose of recyclable and compostable items in the proper place.

Shop Local

Many locally produced souvenirs are available at our retail stores. By buying local we not only support our local communities, but the energy costs associated with transporting those goods are reduced. Consider an edible gift to bring an authentic taste of Crater Lake National Park home with you.

Bring a Refillable Water Bottle

Water filling stations are available throughout our locations. Also, once you’ve purchased a reusable your water bottle refills will be free – so you’ll save money while helping the environment. Forgot your water bottle? Check our retail stores for a souvenir water bottle that you’ll use again and again. 

Watch Energy Use

Be sure to make sure that you’ve turned off the devices that use energy when you leave your room – everything from lights to fans to chargers. Closing the curtains will help maintain temperature control in your room while you’re out.

Use Transportation Alternatives

Consider how you are getting around the destination. Utilize transportation alternatives such as shuttles instead of using your own vehicle – this will cut down on traffic as well as emissions. Whenever possible, try to use “human powered” means of getting around too!
