A reason to Wahweap...
When tent camping, I try to avoid places like this one. That being said, my overnight stay here was quite pleasant. In an RV with hookups, it would be especially lovely. I was tent camping in summer. It was pretty hot during the day, in the 90s, and my tent site was one without a lot of shade. The cottonwoods planted at my site were young and small and not yet giving much shade. I didn't spend time at camp but went swimming and kayaking. When I came back at sunset, the temperature had dropped to a comfortable level.
The restroom near the tent site was immaculate. There are also clean restrooms with showers and a laundry at the main office. The office includes a well-stocked convenience store. The campground is very near to the Stateline boat launch ramp.
It's walking distance to the swimming beach at the lake. Also, included in your tent site's price, which in 2015 was $23, was a pass to the swimming pool over at the main resort area. This resort also has a restaurant (although I didn't eat there) and other amenities open to campers.

You do need to reserve a site in advance. I was there on a weekday in July. When I booked the site the week beforehand, there was still space available, but by the time I got there, it was full. Despite the heat, Lake Powell's busy season is in summer. This is because it's the best time for water skiing and other motorboat sports, as well as swimming.
Keep in mind that if you do not have a National Parks pass or Senior Pass, etc., you also have to pay to get into Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. In 2015 a 1-7 day vehicle pass was $20.
