Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area managed by the National Park Service encompasses the 130-mile-long Franklin D. Roosevelt Lake. This trip takes a week, is over 50 miles and runs between Kettle Falls and Fort Spokane. One could add more miles by including a narrow section of lake up to Northport. This section of lake is green, mountainous and fairly remote as the roads are fairly tucked away from the shorelines. There are public campgrounds along the way, some that are boat-in-only. Some of the group sites can be reserved. We did this trip in spring and found few campsites being used during the week. As always, the fishing, swimming and wildlife viewing is always excellent from a canoe. Overall, it's an excellent canoe trip with good scenery. Most canoe trips have a few highlights. I cant pinpoint any particular spot on this trip. The campsite on Barnaby Island were really nice. We ended at Fort Spokane. We came back another spring to finish the lake going the final 50 miles to the Grand Coulee Dam.
