6 Reviews of Lees Ferry Campground
Views of the Colorado River

This is a very quiet, small campground, well maintained. We pulled in at 3 pm and had a good choice of sites, but by sunset it was almost full. Short walk down to the river! Most sites have a picnic table and awning; all sites have a fire pit / BBQ. Gorgeous dark skies and stunning sunsets.

A little pricey but well worth it--beautiful, quite place with basics

I generally try to avoid paid campgrounds but there are few options, even in the off-season, in this area, and we were driving late into the day, so it was a relief to get to this campground, and even more pleasant to wake up here the next morning. The area is beautiful, the campground is pleasant and you have all the luxuries a paid campground should offer--water, picnic tables, toilets, fire pits, etc. About 45 minutes from Page, and if you are headed for the North Rim of the Grand Canyon this would be a good stop (though not in the winter, as the North Rim is closed dec to mid-may.

One of my all time favorites

Must See but little Shade

Fantastic campground if you’re on your way to Grand Canyon, Antelope, or Southern Utah.

This campground sits on a hill overlooking the majestic Colorado River. Lee’s Ferry is the primary take-off Point for rafting the mighty Colorado.

This is a typical fee campground, yet can be quite popular so Rangers frequent the area often. Camp grounds and decently spaced, and come with grill, picnic table, and a little Ramada. BEWARE, Ramada and camp ground area offer MINIMAL shade, so bring an extra tarp or shade set up.

About a quarter mile hike from the camp ground is a beautiful beach area, with sand and all. It is the Colorado, so know the water temp stays low and cold even when it’s 115 degrees out! Swimming is an absolute, but other caution is force of the water, so watch the little ones!

There are also endless hikes in the surrounding slot canyons. Lee’s Ferry is very dog and kid friendly, but keep your pup on leash as those Park Rangers are always out (yes I felt need for second warning)

I have always encountered extra friendly campers here, and there are pit toilets.

A nice small but beautiful campground

It is a smaller campground but has some nice wind blockers and overlooks the colorado river

First to Review
Well maintained NPS campground near Colorado River

Thisis a no reservations campground there were plenty of sites on a Sunday afternoon. Cost is $20….only $10 with NPS senior pass.

No showers and no hookups but there are clean bathrooms and potable water. The picnic tables have a cabana for protection from wind and dust/sand. We had a site overlooking the Colorado River. The campground is a loop so not all sites overlook the river.

There are areas for hiking nearby. Lee's Ferry historic area and Lonely Dell Ranch are easy walks. The Spencer Trail is a good hike up a mountain. And then there is Cathedral Wash. One hike takes you toward the Vermilion Cliffs and the other to the Colorado River. The one to the river is more challenging; you really have to pay attention to the cairns because you're in the wash as well as climbing above it. On the way back, there was a one moment of….did we really come down in this spot and how will we get back up!

Not much food nearby. Marble Canyon restaurant was pretty good.
