Lees Ferry Campground - Glen Canyon NRA
One thing about this campground is it can be HOT, HOT, HOT! When we were in the campground it was 101 degrees at 1 pm during the 1st few days of June.
The campground can feel like a hot furnace during the heat of the day when the wind is blowing. I don't want to detour you from camping here I just want to make sure you are prepared for the weather.
There is a sign in the campground that says that temperatures can range from 0 degrees in the winter to 115 degrees in the summer.
One really really cool thing about this Glen Canyon Campground is this area has one of the highest concentrations of California Condors! There is a release site near here so there are quite a few California Condors in the area! Keep an eye out for them while visiting Lees Ferry and nearby Navajo Bridge.
We also read that you need to keep your food and trash secure because ringtail cats, ravens, squirrels, and mice are common. How cool would it be to see a ringtail cat while camping! We have only seen them once while driving in Yosemite at night.
