Snake River Area Office — Recreation

Reclamation works with federal and non-federal partners to provide quality recreation opportunities throughout the Upper Snake River reach. Recreation areas can include campgrounds, day use areas, parking areas, boat ramps, restrooms, roads, and visitor centers. Recreation complexes usually encompass an entire reservoir area defined by an established boundary. SRAO has one Outdoor Recreation Planner who administers cost-sharing agreements for parks and recreation areas, and oversees budget, design, and planning of construction projects for improvements and rehabilitation to Reclamation lands and facilities.

Please check with managing agencies for information about fees, use, and regulations at each site; they are all different.

NEW image Malheur County and the Bureau of Reclamation are closing the Malheur County Boat Ramp at Owyhee Reservoir indefinitely due to extremely low water levels creating safety issues. Users wanting to launch water craft are being asked to use the Indian Creek Boat Ramp within the Lake Owyhee State Park located 5 miles south of the Malheur County Boat Ramp.  

Please visit http://www.usbr.gov/pn/snakeriver/water/boatramps.html for boat ramp elevations.
