Lee’s Ferry is a historic river crossing – it used to be one of the main places to cross on the Colorado River between 1872 and 1928.  Later, in the 1920’s,  the ferry was replaced by the Navajo Bridge. The next crossing on the Colorado River is located 300 miles downstream at Hoover Dam.

Located on a bench above the river- this campground is also the launching pad for Grand Canyon raft trips.  Lee’s Ferry is the only location within Glen Canyon where you are able to drive right up to the Colorado River.  Visitors can go fly fishing, climb the Echo cliffs, and explore historic structures. Lee’s Ferry is well known for it’s trout,  which is created by the cold water that comes from Lake Powell.

The services are limited; gas, groceries, lodging a restaurant, fishing guides, and a laundromat are available at Marble Canyon.  The nearest full service is in Page, Arizona.
