Shoreline Management Plan
The 2001 General Management Plan (GMP) for Lake Roosevelt established overall strategies for meeting the general goals and purposes of Lake Roosevelt. Since that time, other management issues have surfaced that are not adequately addressed in the GMP, including the increase in private development along the shoreline, crowding of existing facilities, beach camping, and disposal of human waste.
The Shoreline Management Plan tiers from the goals and objectives established by the GMP and provides for the level of detail needed to address these and other shoreline management issues.

Please contact the park or visit the NPS PEPC website if interested in a hard copy or electronic version of the complete Lake Roosevelt NRA Shoreline Management Plan.
Did You Know?
Lake Roosevelt is the primary flood control reservoir on the Columbia River. The lake level can rise up to 4 feet per day in spring and drop 1 foot per day in summer. When shoreline camping, find out what the lake level is and don't put a tent close to the water unless you want a chilly surprise.
