Open All Year
Lake Roosevelt's 27 car and boat-in only campgrounds are open all year long. Check out our charts below to see what facilities are available at each location. Each individual site has a fire ring, picnic table, and a paved parking space that is either a pull-through or a back-in pad. Most of our car campgrounds also have flush toilets and running water. These facilities, however, are only open during the summer season.
If you are planning on camping during the winter, please make sure to bring your own water. Our vault toilets are available year round. While our campgrounds have sites that will fit most large RV's, there are no hook-ups in any of the campgrounds.
Seven of our campground also have group campsites that can hold 25 or more people. Group sites are only available through Reserve.gov.

Did You Know?
A common rumor at Lake Roosevelt is that the National Park Service controls the lake level. This is not true. The lake level is controlled by Bureau of Reclamation computers that optimize lake levels for only five things: flood control, power production, irrigation, dam repairs, and salmon runs.
