Lake Roosevelt Reservoir was created in 1941 by the completion of Grand Coulee Dam. With 130 miles of water, 27 campgrounds, 22 boat launches, 10 swim beaches, and historical sites such as Fort Spokane Visitor Center and Museum and St. Paul's Mission, there is something for everyone.
Did You Know?
Lake Roosevelt's sturgeon are 8 to 20 feet long. They are also at least 70 years old. In 1941, Grand Coulee Dam flooded the fast-moving waters they need to spawn. To help out the population, the state of Washington introduced new fish to the lake in 2006.
