    The waters of Boundary Reservoir back up behind Boundary Dam on the Pend Oreille River in the very northeast corner of Washington State. The area offers 3 water-access-only small recreation sites on BLM lands, all along the reservoir’s west bank, which provide primitive amenities. The BLM sites are Everett Slough, Ledbetter Cove, and Grandview.

    Access is by boat only, typically via the boat launch at Seattle City Light’s Forebay Recreation Area, located at Boundary Dam.

    US Forest Service lands on the other side of the reservoir offer additional primitive developed and dispersed recreation opportunities.

    Due to predominating dense forest and steep canyon slopes, Everett Slough is the only one of these sites that offers a hiking opportunity. There, hikers can travel through forest along the old +1-mile-long no-public-vehicle-access dirt road grade, that ends at the recreation site. Otherwise, activities at Boundary Reservoir include motorized and non-motorized boating, fishing, picnicking, camping, and nature viewing. The 3 recreation sites each provide basic sanitary facilities with privacy fence. Additionally:

    Everett Slough has 3 primitive campsites, each with tent site, picnic table, fire ring, and bear-proof storage container.

    Ledbetter Cove has 4 tent sites, 2 picnic tables, 2 fire rings, and 2 bear-proof containers.

    Grandview has 2 primitive campsites, each with tent site, picnic table, fire ring, and bear-proof container.

    Seattle City Light manages recreational use on BLM public lands along Boundary Reservoir, at developed sites and on dispersed lands. Seattle City Light manages this recreational use under the terms and responsibilities established in their Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) license for Boundary Dam. Please contact Seattle City Light directly regarding public recreational use on these BLM lands, by email at scl_recreation@seattle.gov, or call Boundary Dam at 509-446-3083 (option #9).
