SoCal Whitewater Meetup Group Message Board › Marble Canyon Lodge Main Building Destroyed by Fire June 20, 2013
This is the lodge near the put-in where we stayed on a June 2010 commercial Grand Canyon trip … so sad…. And will impact our outfitter (GCW) and probably others.
RRFW Riverwire – Marble Canyon Lodge Destroyed by Fire June 20, 2013
A fire swept through the historic Marble Canyon Lodge in the early morning hours of June 19, 2013. The fire destroyed the dining hall and kitchen, along with a small but well stocked sporting goods and book store, and office.
The dining hall was a landmark for Grand Canyon river runners since the Lodge is near Lee’s Ferry, AZ, the departure point for Grand Canyon river trips.
Only the main Lodge building was destroyed in the fire. Buildings not involved in the fire included a gas station, post office and Laundromat to the west and a historic gas station and hotel rooms just to the east of the Lodge. No structures on the south side of Highway 89 A, adjacent to a small runway, were involved.
According to the Coconino County Sherriff’s Department, there were no injuries.
