    Overview

    Spring Canyon Campground, on the shoreline of Lake Roosevelt, is perfect for those who enjoy being on the water. The 130-mile long lake is a feature of the Columbia River created by the Grand Coulee Dam. The lake is named after President Franklin D. Roosevelt and is a part of the Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area, managed by the National Park Service. Campers have the convenience of a day-use swimming area and plenty of space to sit back and soak up the summer sun and cooler days of spring and fall.

    Recreation

    Lake Roosevelt provides numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation. Families can cool off in the day-use water access area located approximately 300 yards downhill from the campground. The Day Use area also has a playground. Boating and water sports abound. For campers looking to take a break from the lake, the Bunchgrass Prairie Nature Trail offers a short walk through the sagebrush.

    Facilities

    This large campground offers 78 individual campsites. A boat ramp and docks within the facility provide easy access to the water. Trailers may use the site, but there are no hookups. The campground is open year-round, but water is shut off during winter.This campground is by reservation only. Reservations must be made in advance.

    Natural Features

    Though not directly on the water, the camping area is a short walk from the lake. The green, lush campground has beautiful views of the lake and surrounding hills. Lake temperatures are comfortable for swimming during the summer, even though much of the water originates from glaciers and snowmelt in the cold, high Canadian Rockies. The lake area has abundant wildlife and birds, including eagles and osprey. Dozens of species of fish inhabit the lake.

    Nearby Attractions

    The famous Grand Coulee Dam is only three miles from the campground. A laser light show is displayed nightly on the dam from Memorial Day weekend through September 30. Additional services are available in the adjacent town of Grand Coulee. Spring Canyon is a short drive from the Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area Headquarters, which provides visitor information.
