Lee's Ferry

 

There is more than enough information on Lee's Ferry to write a book, and there are numerous books out there. For the scope of this web page, I have to keep it pretty simple, sorry! O.K. lets start with a short description of the area.
Lee's Ferry is the only place in the Grand Canyon National Park that you can drive right up to the Colorado River. The stretch of the Colorado River between Lee's Ferry and Glen Canyon Dam is part of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and is maintained by the National Park Service. The Grand Canyon begins at Lee's Ferry.

The Campgrounds

Located about 1.5 miles back up the road from the boat ramp is Lee's Ferry Campground. 54 well kept but slightly unlevel campsites make up the campground. There are flush toilets and a waste station for RV's. There are even wind breaks in each campsite as the wind can sometimes pick up pretty strong in the afternoons (make sure you bring your stakes if you are tent camping).

Upriver campgrounds

If you have a boat, there are several dispersed campgrounds available upriver. Armed with a map of the river (available in Marble Canyon) and good directions of how to avoid losing a prop in the shallow water of the Colorado River (ask anyone in one of the local fly fishing shops), there are campgrounds at 6 mile, 7 1/2 mile, 8 mile, 9 mile, Ferry Swale and Ropes Trail (powerline camp). All of the campgrounds are a few steps from where you anchor your boat and are a good 10 feet above the waterline. There are vault toilets available but you need to bring your own water and trash bags. This is a PACK IT IN - PACK IT OUT area. There is a big bonus for camping upriver in that if you get up early enough, you can beat the guides to their favorite fishing spots.

Fishing

If you like to fish for trout, This is the place to be in Arizona for large trout. Technically more difficult to fish than most places it is not too unlikely that you might land a 20 inch plus rainbow trout. Some estimates suggest that there are up to 40,000 trout per mile in the canyon. See the map below for the most popular fishing areas at Lee's Ferry. (Click Map To Enlarge)
