Boat Beach at Phantom Ranch (River Mile 88.1) as seen from the Kaibab Trail, just west of the Black Bridge. River parties pull in here to obtain drinking water and to exchange passengers. Located 100 yards from boat beach, near the water spigots, weather and water flow bulletins are posted on a sheltered bulletin board. Phantom Ranch is a 1/2 mile (.81 km) walk up Bright Angel Creek.

While on river trips, we all seek something special for ourselves, our families, and our friends. This might be solitude or camaraderie, or both. Even though we are unique individuals, we visit the river and the canyon for many of the same reasons. By considering the needs of others and by leaving the canyon as pristine as or better than you found it, everyone has the potential to create a positive and safe river experience.
