Keller Ferry Campground
Campground Description: The Keller Ferry Campground is owned by the National Park Service. Keller Ferry Campground is operated under contract to Dakota Columbia, a private campground management company that is subject to change on a periodic basis. Although Keller Ferry Campground is owned by the United States Government and the people of the United States of America, discounts for disabled American veterans are not offered by the Dakota Columbia company. Keller Ferry Campground sits on the southern shore of Lake Roosevelt, a 130 mile long lake created by the damming of the Columbia River at Grand Coolie Dam. Within the campground are terrific camping facilities, a boat launch, a swimming beach, BBQ pits, flush toilets (summer only), pit toilets year round, boat rentals, abundant wildlife viewing, hiking, bicycling, nearby hunting, gender specific showers and shore fishing. Limited shopping is available in Keller (14.8 miles south) or more diversified shopping is available in Coolie City, 40 minutes west of Keller Ferry Campground. As a point of interest, the Keller Ferry is considered by the State of Washington a part of the State Highway System, and is therefore free passage. Keller Ferry Campground is open year round and reservations are available and recommended for the summer months - both RV camping and tent camping.

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.
