Alstrom Point, considered by some to be the best viewpoint of Lake Powell overlooks Gunsight Butte in Padre Bay with Navajo Mountain providing the stunning backdrop to this dramatic spot in Glen Canyon Recreation Area. This overlook also provides impressive views of hoodoos and other sandstone formations that have been eroded by wind and rain. Alstrom Point rises nearly 1000 feet above the lake when the water levels are high.
For those movie buffs out there, you may notice that this location makes a brief cameo in the 1968 film Planet of the Apes. Alstrom Point is also an exceptional camping and photography spot for those who have vehicles that can make the trek!
