Would pick else where

A lot of rules at this camp ground because it’s attached to a county park. No alcohol at all and they check Quiet hours are VERY strict even when no one else is by you. You can camp by the water but can’t swim by the camp ground only In designated swim zone

Lonesome

If you like being almost completely alone, this is your spot! They sites aren’t very huge and private, but that doesn’t matter because you will most likely have the whole campground to yourself. Only a fisherman or two may be there. The lakes crystal clear water is beautiful. There is a pretty nice beach if you take the trail down from the metal barn to the opposite end of the lake.

Not so hidden gem

This little campground/RV resort is just off a freeway & lots of trains travel close by….BUT, if u live nearby & are up for a last minute camp trip, this place satisfies! I don't fish, but I'm told they catch em off the docks. The host keeps things real clean/nice looking, and I'll bet u can almost always find a spot for a tent, and without a reservation!

Camping courtesies

Tent sites are super close together, only about 15ft from firepit to firepit . With so little of space between site beware .Our camping neighbors were very noisy and up till 4am drinking and partying

Lot of green lawns and water

Stayed here for four nights. Arrived on Friday and it’s a busy, fun place over the weekend. Emptied out on Sunday and only a few campers left Monday and Tuesday. Electric and water hookups. Dumping for gray and black water on site. Wonderfully delightful camp host. Lot of opportunities for water activities except while we were there the lake had a toxic algae problem so we didn’t go in.

Great hidden spot

This is a great mostly unknown little campground. Fun fact: This is the least used campsite maintained by the Lower Granite Natural Resources Management team. 

Let’s get to the bad/good, depending on how you look at it. 

1. There is NO running water available, unless you want to get some from the river(NOT suggested)

2. Absolutely no electricity here, not even for park lights. This makes for AMAZING star gazing. 

3. ZERO cell service at the campsite. You can get service if you absolutely need it at the top of Hammer Grade road, it’s steep. 

4. Limited sites have shade all day. Get there early to get one of these prime spots. 

5.Summer time is HOT here but, you have the river right there to cool off. 

6. There is a boat launch here though it is not maintained, use at your own discretion. 

7. There are fire/BBQ pits at each site as well as a picnic table. Wood fires are NOT allowed from June 10th through October 10th. It gets very dry out here. 

8. Bring bug spray! Day time the bugs aren’t bad but, when the sun starts going down, the mosquitoes are coming out. Also, spring into early summer, there are ticks. Summer through the rest of the year you should be tick free. 

9. This campsite is open year round and it’s FREE!

10. There are no trash cans or dumpsters. So keep that in mind and take out EVERYTHING you bring in. 

11. No dumpsites nearby. Closest I found is right off highway 395 at the rest area. 

12. You can cross the dam Monday-Thursday excluding holidays and only during daytime hours. 

13. Your trailer, tow vehicle and anything in the bed is going to get dusty getting here and leaving. It’s a decent trek down a gravel road. Speed limit is 45MPH. Good luck to you if you try to go that fast. 

14. Come prepared for the whole trip. Washtucna is the closest town and they have limited supplies. No alcohol is available at the “Store” there. 

15. If hunting season is coming up, get there as early as possible. 

We stayed here in the most shaded part of the campground with our Travel Trailer with a 50 gallon fresh water tank. It lasted the 4 of us the 5 day weekend. It was a hot weekend and we did end up having to run the generator for a few hours during the day to keep the newborn cool. 

I followed my GPS which took me off of Highway 26 and onto Old Highway 26. DON’T do this. Take Hay rd. Old HWY 26 will take you onto Hammer Grade Rd. This is NOT a fun road with a trailer. It has some very steep grades and you’ll be HAMMERING the brakes or exhaust brake. 

All in all, this was a GREAT trip at a great, hidden and secluded area.  We will definitely be revisiting this site.

City park right on the lake!

We visited a cousin in Moses Lake and discovered this city park campground for an overnight stay. Not sure we would make this a destination as we are not boaters but for boaters, this would be an excellent place to land.  There is a boat dock so you can hear the drone of boats coming and going; not sure how late this will last but I assume it will taper off by dusk. There are a combination of both RV and tent sites, some right on the water and most, if not all, with water views.  Each site has a picnic table, fire ring, and bbq pit. Although there are trees, they did little to offer the comfort of shade in the afternoon heat but the views make it worthwhile. Nothing to separate the sites so not particularly private but again, the view of the lake makes it ok.  Bonnie, the"camp sheriff" greeted us with humor and helpfulness. We arrived on a Sunday at the end of June and we were fine for a one-night stay but Bonnie did say they were full up for the 4th of July holiday. Firewood and bagged ice are available for purchase. No alcohol is allowed (probably a good thing when combined with boating!). There is a nice playground. The bathrooms were reasonably clean and there are showers available for a fee based on how long of a shower you want. Open April - September and reservable May-September, although the reservation process was a little cumbersome so we decided to chance it and see if there would be a site available when we arrived.

Older Resort

Sprague Lake Resort is an older resort on the east end of Sprague Lake. The tiny store has very little in it, the constant wind blows all the lake debris right to the resort. Unfortunately they do allow people to smoke so you are sure to run into random people cutting through your campsite smoking. Mainly because there are no clearly defined sites. It's okay, but this will definitely be my first and last stay here.

Amazing!

Came here for my wife and I’s Anniversary. We had never been to the North Cascades so we were excited to do some camping and hiking together (and our pup). The North Cascades definitely didn’t disappoint. It was amazing here and we will definitely be back. We hiked Blue Lake and Diablo Lake, which both were incredible. Diablo Lake is a beautiful blue color. Dogs are allowed on these two hikes, but make sure to check ahead of time because dogs aren’t allowed on some hikes in the area. It was super busy when we came, so thankfully we reserved our spot ahead of time. We got to the campground and our spot was reserved with a ticket which we thought was nice. The rangers were awesome, directed us to our site as well as tell us hikes in the area to do. Loved it, and will be back.

Windy

….The Campground and RV Park, located on Sprague Lake, just 36 miles west of Spokane, WA along I-90 and only 2 miles out of the town of Sprague, on a quiet paved road. (See our map) We are normally open from the 1st of April to the end of November.

….At Sprague Lake Resort, you can enjoy some of the best shore Fishing on the lake. The Resort is surrounded by springs that make this THE dock fishing spot for big (and tasty) Trout, Steelhead and even Bass. Sprague Lake is also known for it's big Channel Cats!

….If fishing isn't your thing, you can Camp or just picnic and relax under the big old Cottonwoods that shade our park. Bird watchers can enjoy sightings of White Pelicans, Meadowlarks, Cormorants, Loons, Wood Ducks and many other species.

….In our park under the trees, we have plenty of tent camping space and 31 full service hookups for your recreational vehicles. The endless shoreline offers a wonderful view from every RV or Camping site.
