Explore Paria Beach

Details

Added by Lucas Bremer

A beach day near the Grand Canyon?

The area directly below Lee's Ferry campground is known as the Paria Riffle and Beach. The Paria is a small river that feeds into the Colorado River just north of the campground. Just park at the campground parking lot next to the river and walk a short distance to the sandy beach area where you can put your toes in the freezing cold Colorado River and admire the scenery of where the river meets the red rock of the cliffs above. The beauty here is amazing. Driftwood, small rapids, and giant red cliffs make this a amazing area to explore or relax in a beach chair for a few hours.

There is also great fly fishing to be had here. Fishing is subject to regulations governing the area from the Glen Canyon Dam to the Paria Riffle, which is the area of the Colorado River that is directly below the Lees Ferry campground.

The road leading into Lee's Ferry is beautiful and leads you all the way to the campground, boat launch, and beach areas.

The Paria Beach area has a sign stating that the land is a part of the Grand Canyon National Park. The Grand Canyon National Park extends all the way up to the Marble Canyon area and this is where rafters enter the Colorado River to raft through the Grand Canyon.
