Recreation areas reopening on Lake Roosevelt

Recreation areas reopening on Lake Roosevelt

Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area will begin opening campgrounds, boat ramps and day-use areas in the North District of the park at noon on September 1.

These actions are due to a reduction on wildfire activity in the northeast portion of the park. Some areas will remain closed due to their proximity to the Carpenter Road and the Kettle Complex Fires. The National Park Service will continue these closures to ensure the highest level of safety for visitors and employees.

The campgrounds, boat ramps, and day-use areas in the following locations will reopen at the above stated time: Porcupine Bay, Enterprise, Gifford, Cloverleaf, Daisy, Bradbury Beach, Colville Flats, Kettle Falls, Marcus Island, Evans, Summer Island, North Gorge and China Bend.

Though wildfire danger has improved in the area, fire danger remains high and the fire ban on open flames remains in effect. Shifting winds may also bring heavy smoke and poor air quality.

The following campgrounds, boat launches, and day use areas will remained closed until conditions improve for visitor safety: Camp Na-Bor-Lee, Hunters, Snag Cove, Napoleon Bridge, Kettle River, Kamloops, Haag Cove and French Rocks.
