CAMPSITE REVIEW: Lees Ferry Campground, Marble Canyon, AZ
Cost: $20/night with National Park Pass ($10/night for Senior Pass holders)
Dump/Water On-site: Yes (Dump at Ranger Station, water “closet” at campground)
This was a nice stopover. We stayed two nights in mid-April 2018. No issues finding the campground and the road in was paved. There were only a few spots that would fit our rig (30’), but we didn’t have any trouble getting one. Most of the spots were a bit smaller, but there were still several to fit bigger rigs than ours. It is a self-pay system, but the rangers (or camp hosts) keep up with the campers. We did not go to the dump, but it is not at the campsite. It is at the ranger station. They did have potable water at the campsite and was in the closet next to the bathrooms. It did have a spigot so you could fill with a hose. The area is beautiful. Depending on your spot, you will have a nice view of the canyon and the Colorado River. I think we were in spot 43 and we had a great view. Internet access for AT&T was decent. One issue was we had serious trouble leveling for some reason. The spot was gravel and every time we tried to pull back on the levels, they would slip right out. We even had no-slip pads under them. We ended up switching to our block levels and they worked fine. We did notice some of the other spots were not very level either. The weather did not cooperate too much while we were there, so we ended up not being able to explore as much as we would have liked. Overall, it was a decent stay and we would camp here again despite the cost.
