There’s not a lot to choose from, but all the spots have a beautiful view!

We stayed three nights and did not notice any law enforcement.
The road is passable by any type of vehicle, but offers a few challenges that may require higher clearance.
The pull off for the road (just off 89A) has a gate between it and the road with dispersed camping.
Make sure you close the gate behind you when you’re coming and going.
Yes, this location is big rig friendly.
But the further back you go, the more challenging the terrain.
Closer to the front, any vehicle will be fine. I would not take a high end Class A past the first two spots.
The road offers a few options to turn around if you don’t find a spot.
We were able to pick up a Verizon signal, but had to leave the rig and climb the hill to get T-Mobile reception.
This was a location we decided not to use any data.
We drove up to the campground at Lee’s Ferry for a strong T-Mobile signal and took care of emails while parked.
The Open Signal app didn’t show any AT&T coverage.
This spot might be dodgy. There are mountains close by in all directions except the south.
It really wasn’t busy. But that said, almost every spot was taken because there are so few spots.
The turnover was high, so there’s a good chance to find a spot, especially during the week.
We were surprised how few designated spots were available for the amount of space.
We felt safe. There were no suspicious characters anywhere near our location.
This is a really quiet spot where most campers kept to themselves.
There were no pesky insects to disrupt our time outdoors.
We did not encounter any wildlife in this spot.
Lee’s Ferry has a dump station for its campground, but requires a National Park Pass to enter the park (or pay).
The dump station is big rig friendly and is easily accessible.
Here are the coordinates:
It wasn’t busy at all and the potable water available was tasty.
This is a beautiful location in which to boondock and the accessibility to Lee’s Ferry is perfect.
Learn the history of Lee’s Ferry and tour the historic site while you’re there.
There are also some great trail systems along the Paria River if you’re up for a hike.
Also take some time to walk the historic Navajo bridge for some amazing views of the Colorado River.
We would certainly return to this site again and again!
