Powering outdoor adventures

Hiking. Camping. Boating. Fishing. The outdoor enthusiast’s dream awaits at a variety of recreation sites owned and operated by Pacific Power and Rocky Mountain Power.

As a company, we own and manage more than 46,000 acres of lands for wildlife habitat and forestry.


We are committed to keeping visitors and the public safe near our facilities and waterways. That's why we share important safety information for visitors to our recreational areas and for contractors working near our hydroelectric facilities.

Caring for our lands

Recognizing that large numbers of visitors each year can have a negative impact on the environment, we have incorporated many features into our recreation sites, including:

  • Leaving day use parking areas as grass to help maintain winter forage for elk.
  • Reducing the size of parking lots to save the natural plant buffer, which is habitat for many different animals and birds.
  • Opening the parks seasonally to ensure that elk and other wildlife have a safe winter home.
  • Taking care to preserve the trees and natural vegetation whenever possible to preserve micro-habitats.
  • Installing log booms to protect shorelines from wave and boat impact.
  • Modifying company property land leases adjacent to waterways to include environmental protection clauses. For example, no farming to the edge of the reservoir is permitted.
