Price I paid was half off with a senior access pass. Beautiful little campground, and excellent for its type. Dry camping, but with a dump station and threaded water hookups at the base of the drinking fountains between the campsites. Verizon phone and hotspot worked on the road above camp, but only intermittently in my space near the lake. Plan to stop here on my way home. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a lovely find. If it hadn't been for RV Park Reviews we would never have found this place. Large well spaced sites in an immaculately landscaped setting on a charming little lake. Our government does such a good job of providing these gems for us. Paved roads and sites with water access throughout the park and a well laid out dump station. Boating, fishing and swimming. Verizon cell service is poor, but with an antenna and amp we were able to get on the net. Phone service with Verizon or ATT is iffy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located about 10 miles south of Othello off of hwy 17, Scooteney Reservoir campground is run by the Bureau of Reclamation. The lake is a great location for bass, walleye, perch and crappie fishing. All sites are large and paved if not always level, but they are close to it. Each site has a very large gravel area for the picnic table and fire grates. Many sites have views of the lake and easy access to it. Unusual to see is two very nice docks provided free for mooring your boat if you come here to fish. A boat launch with two lanes and a dock are available free of charge. The entire park is very well kept and grassy with lots of shade trees that aren't so obtrusive as to block a rooftop satellite dish or solar panels. Our only complaint is the over abundance of goose droppings throughout the sites near the lake which made taking a walk difficult. A very nice RV dump station is available and there are several drinking water fountains throughout the park that also have spigots on the side that would allow you to connect a hose to fill your water tank if needed. A great picnic area is also available. A word of caution about the lake. Several smaller sections of lake are accessible through small canals. If you do not know the lake, take it very slow! There are areas where rocks are just under the surface and lots of places where the water gets very shallow. This is not a water skiing lake! If you have a fast moving bass boat use your trolling motor, be careful with the big motor and watch the sonar very carefully. We will definitely be back to this little known gem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
