By April 29 the Kettle Falls, Fort Spokane, and Spring Canyon campground loops that have been closed for the winter will reopen along with most group campsites accommodating fewer than 50 people associated with these campgrounds.

Lake Roosevelt is moving to 100 percent reservations for all vehicle-accessible campgrounds. Because of this change, you will now able to reserve campsites right up to the day you arrive. Cell service is very spotty at Lake Roosevelt, so we strongly recommend that you make your reservations from home to avoid having to look for a cell signal at your desired campground. Reservations must be made at recreation.gov or by calling 877-444-6777. Individual campsites are available for $23 per night from May 1 through September 30.

If your favorite campground is not one of the three listed above, keep an eye on recreation.gov. By mid-May we hope to open Porcupine Bay, Gifford, Hunters, and Evans campgrounds, with the remaining campgrounds available by Memorial Day weekend and appearing in the reservation system. This will include the associated group campsites rated for 50 or fewer people.

Keller Ferry individual and group campsites, operated by Lake Roosevelt Adventures, are also accepting reservations at this time. For more information, call 1-800-816-2431.

Restroom facilities may be limited to vault toilets for a while. These toilets may not be cleaned and restocked on a regular basis, so please plan accordingly, especially with hand sanitizer.

Boat-in campgrounds and shoreline camping are still available on a first come, first served basis. You must purchase your weekly or annual boat launch permit through pay.gov.

When visiting, the public should follow state health orders, recreate responsibly, avoid crowding and high-risk outdoor activities. The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Remember to pack out what you pack in, including your human waste.

Details and updates on park operations will continue to be posted on our website www.nps.gov/laro and social media channels. Updates about NPS operations will be posted on www.nps.gov/coronavirus.
