No Entrance Fee

Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area does not charge an entrance fee. There is no fee for visiting Fort Spokane Visitor Center and Museum. There are fees for boat launches and camping.

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