We're planning a trip for the early part of June, and part of it includes a 1-2 day stop at Lake Powell. We are looking for a place preferrably in walking distance to the lake to do some fishing from the shore and swimming. Is there a campground there that fits this description?

I looked through the reviews and old discussions and found limited information. It looks like Waheap is ok but is it close to the water? I saw one old review for Halls Crossing and no reviews for Painted Hills RV Park. Any of these close to the water?

Unfortunately, it's not in the budget to rent a houseboat (or any boat), so we will be fishing from shore. Will we catch anything?

Thanks for any info.

We stayed at Waheap. Very nice campground F/H and you can walk to the water.

We stayed at Wahweap RV Park Lower Campground last October for a couple days. Yes, the water (an actual beach) is within walking distance if you can walk up to a mile one way. I say up to a mile because this a large RV park/campground and some sites could be that far from the water. We were maybe a half a mile from the aforementioned beach. If you can do better than a mile (one way), there are also marinas, lodges, stores, restaurants, tour boat dock, etc. within a two mile walk.

As for fishing, you may want to contact the the park service to find out if shore fishing is allowed. Even if it is, the "quality" of fishing from the shore may be questionable.

Read the reviews of this RV park on this site. You will note there are some drawbacks (pay showers in a central area away from the RV site loops and high site cost, for example).
