Entrance Passes

An entrance pass is not required to access Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area.

Other National Park Service sites may require an entrance pass or fee. Depending on your trip plans, an interagency pass may save you money.


No Entrance Fee

Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area does not charge an entrance fee. There are fees in place for camping and boat launching. Please see information below about these fees.

The Recreation Fee Demonstration Program, passed by Congress in 1996, allows 80% of the fees collected at Lake Roosevelt to remain here.

Visitors can purchase a “weekly pass”, good for seven consecutive days or an annual pass, good through December 31st of the year printed on the pass.
