Right on the Spokane River & very close to Lake Roosevelt

Although there is no hookups, there are restrooms with showers, there are a couple convenience stores fairly close, one has a cafe inside & is open year round, the other side of the river has a Skippers inside and in the summer there is a restaurant in the casino at the Two Rivers Casino & Resort

A high mountain isolated small lake

No motor boats and about 7 sites good swimming and weak fishing

Small RV Park Along Side Hwy 2

Stopped here late at night while traveling through on a motorcycle when everything else was full. Operator was very accommodating.

We go here every year

We visit this camp ground every year. It's a great spot with beautiful views, hiking, and water activities. Our friends bring a boat for water skiing but we also just lounge around the beach. Only drawback is there is usually a burn ban in the summer, so no camp fires, and the showers could.use some attention. We have started camping here in September instead of August like we used to because we've discovered the weather is much more pleasant and it is a lot less busy. The summer can be hot. We make sure to book a spot with shade. Also, pay attention to the lawn watering schedule for your area of the campground. Make sure your stuff is put away before the sprinklers start. This is a great place to stay with a family.

Hawk Creek Falls

I enjoyed my stay at Hawk Creek. There are plenty of places to fish and swim. We camped close to the Falls so we had a nice view from our campspot.

Reservations aren't needed

Paid $18 per night but starting October 1st the fee is reduced. I would check the website. Great for fishing. Overlooks lake roosevelt!

High clearance vehicles only

$10 per night, 2 vault toilets, 17 sites right off the creek, fires allowed. I would recommend 4x4 getting here. Great for fishing.


We stumbled on this resort because they were on the Passport America list. They are NO longer a passport America park as they are under new ownership. Nice large campsites, beautiful swimming area and cute little store and breakfast restaurant! Beautiful star-y skies and lots of deer at night!!! No fire ring at the site, there are picnic tables and we had a full hookup site! Staff was super friendly. Dog friendly!

off the road

Right off the highway, on lake roosevelt. 18 dollars a night. There are fire rings, picnic tables and vault toilets. All short walk in sites. Access to water, great for kayaking.


Free. 17 sites, two different areas to choose from on either side of the lake. Accessible fishing dock. Vault toilets, picnic tables and fire rings. Trail around the camp ground that takes you threw the meadow and to a look out area which was pretty cool. The trail continues on to an old shelter that is also accessible by car.


Smaller camp ground, 7 sites, with boat launch, good kayaking and fishing, picnic tables and vault toilets.

Beautiful lawn and view

Each site has access to nicely manicured lawn. The lake is a lot of fun and great walleye fishing. The bathrooms are starting to get a little old but bring your own camper for full hook ups! Nice fish cleaning station too

Family and Dog friendly

My family has been going to this campground and area since before I was born. We used to go every summer growing up. There's a designated swimming area for kids, a dock, and a playground. Definitely a busy spot mid summer season, but good for the whole family. Lots of boats of the lake, good for water skiing or wakeboarding. A bunch of smaller, more quiet and secluded beaches nearby.

Great Place for Families

This place has it all! Showers, weekend breakfast, a store, a kayak launch, you name it. This is a great place to come with your family and enjoy a day on the lake. They have big roomy sites and lots of lakefront.

Serene Desert Camping

Only spent one night, but it was a great spot. It's a primitive camping spot so you'll need to bring water. The campsite is right along Banks Lake and is super peaceful. I immensely enjoyed the crickets and frogs as I was falling asleep.

Designed for RV's and Trailers

Very small campground designed only for RV's and trailers. Swimming area is not considered safe, there are large chunk of concrete all along the edge. Fishing in this area is also difficult because of the snags and concrete. Boat launch was closed to vehicles when I visited. Lots of overflow traffic from Alder Lake Campground on weekends.

Sma campground, but feels like you are in the wilderness.

Quiet family place. Swimming hole. Water available. Bring own wood. Surrounded by private property, so no hiking. 1/2 hour from Spokane. Free with Discovery Pass. Fills up by Friday afternoon.

Pricey and Crowded

I’m much more of a state park and remote campground person. The Steamboat Rock campground seemed crowded and overly developed to me. It was also the most expensive place I stayed on a drive across the country. There are multiple loops and sections to choose from. Most sites have a view of the water if you can see past the RVs.The scenery is incredible especially in the early morning and evening light. There is also a store and concessions stand. Seems much more a place for bigger groups or families than a solo traveler looking for a peaceful evening.

Beautiful area

The colville national forest. Need I say more. Beautiful views. Lake has store to rent toys to play on lake. We had a great time playing in a row boat all day for a decent price. We had water access from our campsite. But also a beach within walking distance.

Steamboat fun

We enjoyed this place alot. We walked over to a nice sandy beach and kids walked aways into water before it got deep. The beach was nice and sandy. We really enjoyed this place. There were wild turkeys that walked right into our camp. We hiked part of the ways up but didnt go all the way.

Clean and quiet atmosphere

You will need a Discover Pass to camp here but other than that there are no extra camping fees.

Each campsite has it's own fire pit and a picknic table. While some sites are more private than others they are all within walking distance to a drop toilet.

The only downside here would have to be the number of wasps throughout the grounds. Wasp traps would be a nice investment but when you're outside you have to be prepared. For things like that.

There's a small creek that runs through the campgrounds. Not great for swimming (very shallow) but luckily there are many swimming spots locally that you can visit instead.

All in all I had a really great time while we were staying on the grounds. The gates close at 10pm so you don't have to worry about people driving in at all hours of the night.

Right on the Water!

The resort is right on Long Lake, there is an area to swim, and it’s a good spot for waterskiing. There are picnic pavilions and a boat launch, and lots of camping sites. The entry road is narrow, it is not paved, and meanders through private property, so slow down!

Clean and pleasant

This is a campground on a military base, access is limited to active and retired military. use the Rambo Rd gate during normal business hours. They do have a convenient dump station.

Green Grass Camping

Nice, well kept state park on the southeast shore of the lake. Garbages emptied and bathrooms cleaned regularly. The designated swimming area had a lot of geese poo so we opted to find other areas to swim. Zero reliable cell service in the park. Had to drive back towards Republic to make a call.

Spring Canyon Campground

Easy access on the Columbia River. Great sandy beach with a nice day use area. 2 camping areas as well as a group area. Very nice!!

Nice park on a great base

RV Park is nice, but not much shade. It is fairly close to base amenities. Nice commissary and PX store on base.

Jump Off Joe Lake by Deer lake

Nice little resort with a store- hookups - docks and boat launch. The lake is a small lake but is a good fishing lake. The resort does have a swim beach.

The Kettle River

Beautiful river waters and some sandy beaches. The kettle river is usually good for swimming and floating from the beginning of July until the end of August. Lots of bald eagles and other birds to watch. n

Nice grassy areas and hookups available - lake has excellent bass fishing and bird watching.

There is the state park and 3 other resorts on the lake. All have full hook ups.

Beach camping just down from Jones Bay.

lake Roosevelt offers miles and miles of sandy shoreline, private beaches and pristine waters along with great fishing.
