Want to explore the river in a canoe, but you don't own one?
Would you like to know what life was like for the soldiers or Indian students at Fort Spokane?
Would you like and explanation of the unusual geology around Lake Roosevelt?
Then you want to join a free ranger-led program. Park rangers conduct a variety of activities from guided canoe tours to evening programs in the campgrounds. Topics vary from bears and cougars to military history and geology. Most programs are available from mid-June until Labor Day and schedules are posted on bulletin boards throughout the park. There are also self-guided activities available here at Lake Roosevelt as well.
Did You Know?
Fire is a natural part of Lake Roosevelt's dry forest and desert environment. Park fire fighters, to protect nearby landowners, manage the forest by extinguishing any wildfire, as well as thin, pile up, and burn excess vegetation in winter. Prescribed fires may be lit to burn what is left.
