HUNTERS GROUP SITE, WA

part ofLake Roosevelt National Recreation Area, National Park Service
Status: Open year round.   Season Dates
 

Overview

Hunters Group Site sits along the northern shoreline of Lake Roosevelt. The facility is popular among groups of hunters and fishermen, but is also comfortable for families and other groups of up to 25 people. Although there is no view of the lake directly from the campground, a boat launch and beach are located within the facility.

Lake Roosevelt is a 130-mile lake on the Columbia River created by the Grand Coulee Dam. Named after President Franklin D. Roosevelt, it is part of the Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area managed by the National Park Service.

Natural Features:

The site is situated in a thick Ponderosa pine forest that provides plenty of shade. The lake area is abundant with wildlife, including moose, elk, deer and bald eagles. Dozens of species of fish inhabit the lake.

Much of the water in the lake originates from glaciers and snowmelt from the cold, high Canadian Rockies. Although, lake temperatures are pleasant to swim in during summer.

Recreation:

This campground is popular for hunting groups (hunting is allowed in certain areas of the park) and fishermen. The lake is abundant with walleye, bass, rainbow trout and salmon. Sturgeon also live in the lake; however, fishing for sturgeon is not allowed. The boat launch is open year-round.

Families and visitors can attend educational programs, enjoy a leisurely walk to the lake or relax by the beach.

Facilities:

There are three group campsites that can be reserved year-round. Each of the sites has grills and fire pits, and the facility has drinking water and flush toilets. A campground host lives on-site and can provide further information. This facility is more remote than some of the surrounding campgrounds; however, the small town of Hunters is nearby.
