Spend a night under the stars in one of Lake Roosevelt's campgrounds. Three campgrounds are open to reservations only, and primitive boat-in campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Amenities and fees vary throughout the year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some campgrounds are closed until further notice.

Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area is a magnet for visitors from outside the five counties (Lincoln, Stevens, Ferry, Okanogan, and Grant) that border the Lake. According to a visitor survey conducted in 2016, 94% of our visitors come from throughout Washington State. With an average annual visitation of 1.3 million people a year, approximately 1 million of those visitors come between April and September each year. Of those visitors, 500,000 people come from three Washington State counties: Spokane, King, and Snohomish. Opening camping encourages people from high COVID19 areas to travel to low COVID19 areas despite current Washington State guidance. We are supporting Washington State's phased opening to help protect the small communities surrounding Lake Roosevelt.

The National Park Service (NPS) continues to closely monitor and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage you to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Washington State and local officials to stay safe. Park operations continue to adapt to changing conditions while maintaining public access, particularly outdoor spaces.
