Welcome to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

Lees Ferry is located off US Hwy 89A, about 45 miles south of Page AZ. At Marble Canyon, turn off onto the Lees Ferry Road, and in about half a mile stop at the Entrance Station. Use the automated fee machine for your entrance fee and all relevant passes. No cash, the machine accepts cards only.

Lees Ferry is the only place within Glen Canyon where visitors can drive to the Colorado River in over 700 miles of canyon country, right up to the first rapid in the Grand Canyon. A natural corridor between Utah and Arizona, Lees Ferry figured prominently in the exploration and settlement of northern Arizona. Lees Ferry is now a meeting of the old and the new.

Here at the very start of the Grand Canyon, adventurous river runners launch their boats for trips down the canyon. Fishermen enjoy world-class trout fishing upstream to Glen Canyon Dam. Backpackers finish their 4 or 5 day hike through the Paria Canyon Wilderness Area here. Hikers can explore canyons and desert ridges.
