The 45 mi (72.42 km) long lake’s capacity is 648000 ac/2622 km² on a very low desert elevation of 482 ft (146.91 m). The concrete dam that makes a glorious arch was built between 1934 and 1938 by the United States Bureau of Reclamation.

It is an ideal hot spot for Stand Up Paddlers with its size, the perfect climate and the warm glassy water. You can have fun Stand Up Paddling by the shorelines, admiring at the same time the magnificent scenery of the canyon and the Desert Mountains that surround you.
Stand Up Paddling is an easy sport suitable for all kind of ages. While practicing your favorite sport, you can get a full body exercise and it feel like walking on the water. It should be avoided on windy days by novice paddlers.
