Jones Bay is one of Lake Roosevelt’s smaller, more rustic campgrounds. The campground is mostly gravel and packed dirt, with not much vegetation, on the lake shore. It can be reached by boat and has a boat launch and dock. Jones Bay can be also be reached by car, but may be difficult to find.
ADA Access: Campground roads and campsite parking spaces are packed gravel. Campsite areas, such as picnic tables and fire pits, are unpaved and may be uneven. There is no designated ADA site.
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.
This is a wonderful campground to stay at if you’re interesting in hiking Steamboat Rock or Northrup Canyon! Beautiful views of the buttes and rock formations surround you, no matter what spot you pick in the campground. These are primitive sights, meaning there is no running water anywhere, and no where to dispose of trash, so please don’t leave it where you stayed! Although there are only pit toilets, they’re very clean and well maintained. We got lucky when we stayed, as they had just sprayed for mosquitoes, but I’ve heard they are ruthless at other times!!
super awesome, primitive, secluded campground with plenty of buffer between sites. great for group camping. the toilet (sheltered hole in the ground) is pretty far down the gravel road. there is no shower. the mosquitos are hungry so come prepared. oh and watch out for snakes!
