Fishtrap Lake Resort
Campground Description: Fishtrap Lake Resort is privately owned and operated. The resort is located at the northern tip of the 800 acre Fishtrap Lake. The resort is lush with lots of lawn areas and tall trees. Fishtrap Lake Resort also has a small cafe and convenience store that stocks fishing tackle. The resort is very family friendly and does not allow jet skis, tubing, waterskiing or other activities that may poise a danger to the fishermen (and fisherwomen). Kayaks and canoes are allowed and encouraged for the fisher person, nature lover or wildlife photographer. The resort is closed during the winter months, so call in the spring to hear when it reopens. Reservations are available.

Fishing: Yes! Fishtrap Lake is one of the premier fishing lakes in Washington State. Fishermen (and fisherwomen) regularly catch their limit daily. Trout is the mainstay for fishing here. The lake is stocked on a regular basis with trout. Besides hatchery pan-sized trout, hefty triploids are also stocked here.
Astronomy Opportunities: Great, if you can find a clear area. There is an expected light dome from Spokane, however, this is a lot better for astronomy camping than your back yard.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do not allow tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.
The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we insure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tents and all types of RV campers. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.
Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions. New campgrounds are added weekly.
