Camping Fee Increase at Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area

Coulee Dam, WA – Beginning at 12:01 am on January 29, 2021 individual campsite fees will increase at Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area. Annually, campsite fees depend on the time of year you are camping. From May 1 through September 30 campsite fees will increase from $18 per night to $23 per night. From October 1 through April 30 campsite fees will increase from $9 per night to $11.50 per night. This fee increase will allow the National Park Service to stay in-line with local market pricing for similar campgrounds.

At this time, camping at Lake Roosevelt is limited to Kettle Falls loop 1, Fort Spokane loop 1, and Spring Canyon loop 1. Reservations are now required all year but can be made in advance or from the campground upon arrival with adequate cell phone service. Reservations must be made at recreation.gov or by calling 877-444-6777.

While these areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased in in alignment with the most current Washington State phased opening plan. We will continue to monitor all park functions to adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public and staff health. As the park is able to open additional campgrounds, the new campsite prices will apply, and the campsites will be added to the reservation system at recreation.gov.

When recreating, the public should follow state health orders, practice Leave No Trace principles, avoid crowding and avoid high-risk outdoor activities. The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

Details and updates on park operations will continue to be posted on our website www.nps.gov/laro and social media channels. Updates about NPS operations will be posted on www.nps.gov/coronavirus.
