Winter access listed for Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area


With reduced staffing and resources during the winter season, the facilities open in the Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area are limited, but the National Park Service unit last week listed several boat launches snowplowed on an “as needed” basis on weekdays during the snowy season.

They include Kettle Falls boat launch, Bradbury Beach boat launch, Gifford boat launch, Hunter boat launch, Fort Spokane boat launch and first campground loop road only, Seven Bays boat launch, Porcupine Bay boat launch, Lincoln Mill boat launch, Keller Ferry boat launch, Spring Canyon boat launch and lower campground loop road only.

The recreation area’s snow removal and sanding procedures start Nov. 1 and extend to March 31 beginning when two or more inches have accumulated.

Weekend and holiday plowing schedules are determined on a daily basis. Individual campsites in the plowed loops are not plowed but are available for winter camping for $9 per night, the agency said.

All other Lake Roosevelt NRA park areas are open for walking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing as conditions permit.
