This is an interesting area. The Campground is primitive no hook ups be prepared for HOT weather even in the late spring. We were there in late may the Temps were near 100. No A/C.
The early morning fishing was awesome, the views incredible but too hot.
We left there for the North rim Grand Canyon where that night it was 18* with no hook ups again. Talk about a shock.
This is where the long raft trips start for tge Grand Canyon float. It was amazing seeing them unload, inflate and load 2 weeks plus of provisions on those huge rafts and take off.

Stayed there in late May last year. It is already hot at that time of the year. Not unbearable. The evening was nice. This is a use fee area as it is part of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. If you stay in the campground you do not have to pay the use fee. (At least I didn’t and I had a Ranger stop by and chat with me at the campsite.) You also do not have to pay the use fee if visiting the Navajo Bridge as it is just outside of the Recreation Area. If you have a Senior Pass the campsite cost is halved. The sites were a little unlevel so have your blocks ready. There is a no fee tank dump available about a half mile down the road on the right as you approach Lee’s Ferry and there are rest rooms in the campground. You can walk to the river from the campsites or drive. A nice stopover on the way to or from the North Rim.

It's not that close to Page, AZ but if you're passing by it's worth a stop. We stayed at Lee's Ferry campground with our 40' motorhome for a few nights and did some fishing. It was very pleasant with a nice view. There's a riverside trail that's interesting. We'd recommend it.

Here's the information on the campground and lots of good reading about the area:

Here are some photos:

Out of curiosity, I had a look, and it's about 8 miles to Page from there as the crow (or condor) flies, but the drive is closer to 50 miles (yikes)?? I recall that it was a winding upsy downsy drive to North Rim from there. I would definitely do that route to GCNR again, and stop at LFCG.

Have stayed at Lee's Ferry several times. Very nice campground, no hookups. The Vermilion cliffs are stunning.

Lee's Ferry is a favorite for us, can be hot so timing is important. Never saw the Condors at the bridge.

X 2 about seeing the rafts ready to launch. Lee's Ferry is the end point for the Colorado River Discovery raft trip out of Page, AZ. Very interesting flat water raft trip. You go through the horseshoe bend and can see people up there near the edge. They look very tiny. It is a long way down!
