3/24/2020 During COVID-19 this campground will remain closed until further notice. Hawk Creek Campground is tucked back from the lake on Hawk Creek. The campground is popular, but small enough to feel private and secluded. A small waterfall adds ambiance to this beautiful and unique campground. Hawk Creek is close to Fort Spokane Visitor Center, but far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle. A courtesy dock provides access to Lake Roosevelt.
ADA Access: Campground roads and campsite parking spaces are paved. Campsite areas, such as picnic tables and fire pits, are unpaved and may be uneven. There is no designated ADA site. Restrooms have sidewalk pathways from the road.
It was empty when we went, the sites are very close together, and not private. There is a great waterfall that is accessible by boat only when the water levels are higher in the summer. In spring the lake is low for flood control. Only $9 a night in off season and $18 in the summer.
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.
I almost didn’t want to write this because I’d rather keep it a secret. But we have stayed there a few times now. The last couple times there were literally 1000’s of baby frogs that my son was catching and playing with. There is a ton of wildlife. Crawfish. Birds. Small snakes if you go looking for them. Fish. I always worry when we go that it’s going to be full when we go because it’s a smaller campground but there is always space. Overall, a great spot!
Turned up late afternoon with plenty of camp sites available. Was early season tho and the water level was 60ft down dew to the dams being open for the salmon and snow melt. One valt toilet no showers and potable water. Super cool waterfall at the end of camp few rainbow trout in there. We hiked to some caves up on the hill witch was wicked. Not too many trees and no cover in between sites. Would be nice once the lake is up to its normal height. Boat launch 2 min drive. We will be back so try some pike fishing.
Played in the creek/ waterfall with our dogs. Caught frogs, and hiked all day.
