Goose Bay Marina Recreation Area Information Portal
Canyon Ferry Reservoir
This web site provides information about planning efforts for the Goose Bay Marina Recreation Area, including the Draft Environmental Assessment for the Recreation Master Plan for the Goose Bay Planning Area. There are also maps, background information and photographs.
Reclamation has been engaging with the public about the process since 2009, using a variety of methods, including user surveys, comments, letters and public meetings.
The public has expressed a strong desire for a more primitive campground with group camping areas and services that include more toilets, picnic tables, fire rings and some mosquito, wind and sun protection.
The final plans for the project alternatives are expected to be completed in late spring or early summer 2013.
Goose Bay Marina is located on the eastern shore about midway between the north and south end of Canyon Ferry Reservoir, Canyon Ferry, Montana.
The Bay is among the largest on the Reservoir serving as a marina, and a deep-water bay. The Marina has a new modern boat launch ramp with launch dock, 76 boat slips, new fuel service, a marina store, a shower building, and an RV dump station.
