Self Support Lake Powell

Hey Buzz Community!

I'm in the beginning stages of planning for a self-support trip on upper Lake Powell and I could use some beta. I've read all the general info about kayaking the lake, but I'd love to hear personal opinions and recommendations. Particularly:

What is the best map? (a comprehensive map with camping areas not just joe bobs guide to sites at Lake Powell)

What kind of mileage would you recommend per day?

Did you run into any unexpected issues on the water?


Thanks All!

Forget Powell reservoir. Leave that to the stinking noise makers. Find a nice long river instead.

Yeah, yeah, I know. I am much more of a river person, but there's a specific place I want to go to on Powell while the water is so low. And it's something different to do in the off-season since I can't afford Costa Rica.
