Nice campground along the river

The best thing about this campground is it's proximity to the Colorado River and Lees Ferry Boat Launch. We floated/kayaked our way from Petroglyph Beach down to Lees Ferry and camped here after. The campground is on a little bluff with the Vermillion Cliffs on on side and a view of the river to the other. It's beautiful! We were comfortable in our tent even during a little rain and lightning during the night. There is multiple nearby trails for hiking and Paria Beach along the river to get your toes wet, although you won't be going in too far as there are some light rapids in the middle of the river. This campground has 1 bathroom facility (no showers?) In addition to a sink for filling up jerry cans, etc... with potable water. Many sites offer shades structures over tables but sites are still relatively close together. There are a few group sites in the middle of the campground. FYI The park rangers check up on the campground often. We were here on a Tuesday night in September and the place gets pretty busy (likely 75% full) however, we checked it out on a late Friday afternoonnand it had multiple spots open. I only gave this place 4 stars due to the lack of showers and privacy between sites.
