Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area Interpretative Plan

lake_rooseveltPROJECT SUMMARY

Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area is a U.S. National Recreation Area of the National Park Service that encompasses the 130-mile (210 km) long Franklin D. Roosevelt Lake between Grand Coulee Dam and Northport, Washington, in eastern Washington state. It is a popular boating, fishing, hunting, camping, and swimming destination, as well as the location of Fort Spokane and St. Paul’s Mission. Crescent Bay Lake in Grant County just southwest of Lake Roosevelt also falls under the jurisdiction of the National Recreation Area.

In 1941 the Grand Coulee Dam was built on the Columbia River as part of the Columbia River Basin project, creating a 130-mile long lake. Named for President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area provides opportunities for boating, fishing, swimming, camping, canoeing, hunting and visiting historic Fort Spokane and St. Paul’s Mission.

This project will recommend a strategy and outline specific action items that can be used to guide the development of digital and social media, including the park website, and other emerging technologies to support interpretive and visitor experience goals.

FUNDING & SUPPORT: Funding was made possible by the National Park Service, U.S. Department of Interior.


Mink’ED works closely on this project with the principals of Interpretive Solutions on developing the education plan for the Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site.
