This used to be a National Recreation Area campground like many along the shores of Lake Roosevelt. It USED to be a beautiful park that like the others was very inexpensive and a gem of a park for families that want a nice place to camp but don't have a lot of money. On our latest visit we were shocked and infuriated that this park, built and paid for by tax dollars has been handed over to the local indian tribe corporation "Dakota America". They instantly raised the price per night to $21; keep in mind there are no hookups. Also, the restrooms were closed and the water there wasn't turned on. Despite watching the "manager" come and go from the restroom building 4 times one day when asked why they weren't open and what was our $21/night paying for he acted as if he was surprised that they weren't open and working. The biggest issue we had is that reservations can be made online but no one is putting tags on the posts to tell you if a site is reserved. So our friends arrive, pick a spot and are moved out of it 30 minutes later when someone with a reservation arrived. Inexcusable. We were told it was OUR responsibility to go online before picking a spot to be sure it wasn't reserved, something easier said than done when there isn't any cell service or internet available down there. Long and short the taxpayers have been screwed out of another one of the beautiful gems we paid for in favor of big money and big corporations who get to take over these campground for free and then jack up the rates. We will never return to Keller Ferry to camp. Sad. We camped at Keller Ferry Campground in a Motorhome.

We arrived there just after dark so we couldn't see much. There were a lot of large rigs there, and the sites were at least 7ft apart. We found a decent number of sites open, so we picked one and started to park. The asphalt pad was level. A friendly fella greeted us and let us know the site (#30) was available for the night, told us about the amenities, and advised us of the pet-friendly camp standards. The camp was totally quiet at 10p, but our neighbors had some noisy camp gear so that sucked all night long. In the morning we woke up to an amazing view and to our surprise we were on the beach front. We had to leave in a hurry the next morning, but we wished we could have spent more hot summer at this cool refreshing water frontage. We camped at Keller Ferry Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice grassy and well shaded campground on the shores of Lake Roosevelt right at Keller Ferry. Nearby boat launch and marina with small store, moorage available at the marina for extra charge. Marine fuel dock also available. Boat launch area makes it easy to launch a boat even with a large RV, and you can store your trailer in the parking area on the far side. We noticed that only a few of the sites (perhaps only about 25%) were close to being level; the others were not anywhere close. Picnic tables were provided and in nice shape. Shade trees do a nice job of keeping the RV cooler even on 80+ degree days but use of a satellite dish is about out of the question. We will camp here again, though.
