Fort Spokane Group Site Campground

Fort Spokane Group Campground is a great destination for history buffs, birders and boaters and the perfect location for groups who like to experience a combination of history and recreation. The facility lies on the shoreline of Lake Roosevelt next to the grounds of a former military fort constructed to keep the peace between early settlers and the American Indians.


Facilities

Fort Spokane Group Site represents the two group areas within the general Fort Spokane Campground that can be reserved March through November; the group and general campsites are separated by the boat launch. Each group site can hold up to 45 people. The campground is open year-round, however drinking water is shut off in winter. There are no hookups. A convenience store and gas station are nearby for campers to replenish basic goods.

Nearby attractions

The reservation of the Spokane Tribe of Indians is near the campground at the confluence of the Spokane and Columbia Rivers. There is a restaurant on the reservation.

Natural feaures

Fort Spokane lies on the water amidst ponderosa pine trees and shrubs. It is near the confluence of the Spokane River and the Columbia River. The lake has comfortable temperatures during summer, even though much of the water originates from glaciers and snowmelt in the cold, high Canadian Rockies. The lake area is abundant with wildlife, including moose, elk, deer, bighorn sheep, birds and fish.

Recreation

Fort Spokane boasts some of the best bird habitats in the Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area. The prime viewing spot is Hawk Creek, only a few miles away. Birders often see peregrine falcons, blue herons, finches, bald eagles, osprey and even the occasional golden eagle. The former guard house of the fort is still standing and has been converted to a visitor center and museum directly across the street from the campground. The center is open from June through Labor Day, during which visitors can learn about the military history and Indian boarding school through interpretive programs and exhibits. For a self-guided tour, there is an interpretive trail. The lake is abundant with walleye, bass, rainbow trout and salmon, making it a popular place for fishing throughout the year; the shoreline along Fort Spokane does not typically freeze in winter and the campground's boat launch is open all year.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
