Dworshak staff announces seasonal facilities closures

Published Dec. 3, 2012

AHSAHKA, Idaho –  Dworshak Dam and Reservoir staff announces that Dam View, Grandad and Canyon Creek campgrounds, and Merrys Bay day-use area are closed for the winter season and will reopen in the spring 2013 as weather conditions allow.

Dent Acres campground will remain open until Dec. 15, weather permitting, to accommodate late-season hunters. The cost of off-season camping at Dent Acres is $10 a night. Big Eddy, Bruces Eddy and the fishing wall area below the dam will remain open for use during the winter season. 

As always, safety is the Corps’ greatest concern – when boating on the reservoir during winter months, always be aware of the symptoms of hypothermia, and wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device.

The roads accessing recreation areas can be challenging and icy during inclement weather, so please drive safely. For more information regarding facilities access and current conditions, call 208-476-1255 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
