Spring Canyon Campground
Campground Description: Spring Canyon Campground is owned and operated by the National Park Service. Spring Canyon Campground is broken into 2 sections, the upper section and the lower section. Each section is unique at Spring Canyon. The upper section is the original Spring Canyon Campground complete with trees, lawns and (believe it or not) covered RV parking. The RV owner needs to be absolutely certain of the height of his RV (including air conditioner) because the awnings are not forgiving. The lower section at Spring Canyon Campground is set in an arid environment, but closer to the water. At Spring Canyon Campground visitors have a boat launch and boat trailer parking. Activities typically include fishing, water skiing, birding, hiking, swimming canoeing and more. Spring Canyon Campground is only a few miles from complete grocery stores, restaurants and automotive service centers in Grand Coulee and Electric City. Open year round. Reservations are highly recommended during the summer months.

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.
