Lewis River dispersed shoreline camping

Dispersed shoreline campsites are remote sites, established by PacifiCorp, along the shorelines of Yale and Swift Reservoirs to provide the public with a more wilderness-type camping experience. PacifiCorp has designated 9 shoreline campsites on Yale Reservoir and 11 shoreline campsites on Swift Reservoir for dispersed camping.  Sites are available for boat-in access only. 

Dispersed camping is only allowed at designated shoreline campsites. Many informal campsites have been closed as a result of ongoing impacts to sensitive resources as well as public safety concerns. PacifiCorp continues to evaluate the shoreline camping program to ensure it remains safe and sustainable. Everyone must do their part to maintain this opportunity for future use.

Dispersed shoreline campsites are available for use beginning Memorial Day weekend.  Yale Reservoir dispersed camping program ends Labor Day.  Swift Reservoir dispersed camping program ends September 30.
