Some areas will remain closed due to their proximity to the Kettle Complex. The National Park Service has continued these closures to ensure the highest level of safety for visitors and employees.
Under the authority granted to the superintendent under 36 Code of Federal Regulations 1.5 (a)(1), campgrounds, boat ramps, and day-use areas in the following locations are reopened as of 10:00am, Friday, September 4th, 2015: Camp Na-Bor-Lee, Hunters, Haag Cove, and French Rocks. Other areas already reopened in the park include: Porcupine Bay, Enterprise, Gifford, Cloverleaf, Daisy, Bradbury Beach, Colville Flats, Kettle Falls, Marcus Island, Evans, Summer Island, North Gorge, and China Bend. Though wildfire conditions have improved in the area, fire danger remains high and the fire ban on open flames remains in effect. Shifting winds may also bring heavy smoke and poor air quality.
The following campgrounds, boat ramps, and day-use areas will remain closed until conditions improve for visitor safety. Snag Cove, Napoleon Bridge, Kettle River, and Kamloops Island.
