Lake Powell is full of sunshine and warmth during the day, but the nights are much cooler. Temperatures can drop below freezing overnight in the winter. Regardless of when you plan to camp, make sure that you have a tent that can withstand the current temperatures and weather conditions.

Sleeping Bags

Even if you like sleeping with nothing but the open sky above you, you’ll want to bring a sleeping bag. Lightweight sleeping bags will do the trick during warmer summer months, but you’ll want something heavier for winter camping trips.
