Due to the planned launch of the new Washington State ferry "Sanpoil", the Crescent Bay boat launch and parking area will be closed beginning at 5 P.M. on July 9 and continuing through July 10.

Boaters in the area will be able to use the launch ramp at Spring Canyon, located 3 miles east of Grand Coulee off Hwy 174, during this closure.

Did You Know?

These folks thought their campsite was far enough away from the water, but woke to find toys and coolers floating away.

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.
