Rocky Lake

Yesterday we left our place in the Okanogan and drove 2.5 hours east to Colville, WA.

I was a little concerned that we’d be arriving at a campground on a Saturday during a holiday weekend, but we were happy to find that the only people around were day-use fishermen and we had our pick of the campsites.


We chose a spot that had a very long driveway which required Brian to back into.


Rocky Lake is run by the Department of Natural Resources and has 6 campsites. It’s free to camp here for up to 5 days with a Discover Pass.

2014 Cost of Camping:
126 night paid camping
116 nights free camping
242 days this year
Total spent on camping this year: $3274.79
Daily average cost of camping: $13.53

    The WA Dept of Fish & Wildlife website lists the campground as closed for “social reasons.” Was it open during your stay?
