I dreamed of living in a houseboat on Lake Powell, AZ at one point and thought I’d throw this out as an interesting housing option even though Lake Powell probably isn’t the most practical place to live because of its remote, desert location. Check out the links below for other alternatives. You may be able to buy a used houseboat at a good price due to the recession. You could rent a houseboat first to see if you like the lifestyle. Lots more houseboat videos at YouTube.
“My wife and I are asked about living on a houseboat all the time. We cannot answer all your questions because usually one answer causes another question. We will however try our best. The first thing to know, life on the water has its pro’s and cons. Only you can decide if the life is a fit for you. Thankfully not everyone can live aboard, which is a good thing; it would get crowded out here. Because the choice to move at our pleasure we have chosen to live on Americas Waterways, in other words we are not land locked to one lake. We live on the TN River, which has access to close to 10,000 miles of navigable rivers never taking the boat out of the water.”

I have been looking into living on a houseboat full time, but Lake Powell workers never seem to be able to answer my question as to whether or not it is legal. So, is it?
I can’t say for sure but I don’t see why you couldn’t. Just get the required boating/camping/park permits.
