Dispersed Camping is permitted anywhere along the shore except within a mile of the marinas, Lees Ferry or Rainbow Bridge. The most feasible camping sites are along the main channel. There are some smaller, more secluded sites within some of the finger canyons, but they are few in number. Camping is also allowed away from the lake in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area if you care to hike.
Fires are permitted, but all remnants, burned or otherwise, must be disposed of at a marina disposal site. Firewood is scarce around the lake but can be purchased at any of the marinas. Lake water should be treated before drinking. If you camp within 1/4 mile of the lake, you must carry or have on your boat a portable toilet. No permits are necessary. All of the marinas sell groceries, firewood and other supplies for campers.
