Kayak Glen Canyon

Lees Ferry Boat Ramp - Search Nearby - Added by Carrie Roc

Distance: 20 miles roundtrip. Overnight camping. Petroglyphs. Amazing views. Relaxing kayaking adventure!

Starting at Lee's Ferry, you meet with a boat that will back haul you up the river close to Glen Canyon Dam for approximately $150/2 people, plus your gear. There is an overnight parking lot available. The river is swift in some spots where it would be quite challenging to paddle up the river yourself, which is why there is a back haul service.

Once dropped off at the top of the river, you can paddle down to the designated campsites along the shore. There's a stop to see petroglyphs, also, which is pretty neat. The camp areas have an outhouse, some cleaner than others, but no running water. Most camp spots have fire pits as well - please clean up after yourself!

The paddle back to Lee's Ferry is quite relaxing, kind of like a lazy river. The river flows fast enough in some spots where you can kick back and relax and let the river do the work for you. The entire length from the dam back to Lee's Ferry is about 10 miles or so. Overall, a great relaxing camping trip.
