Campground Description

Banks Lake, part of the Columbia Basin Project, was created by building two rock-faced, earthfill dams at the north and south ends of the Ice-Age channel of the Columbia River, now known as Grand Coulee. The reservoir is 27 miles long with 27,000 water surface acres. Fishing opportunities for smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, yellow perch, rainbow trout, walleye, kokanee, black crappie, bullhead, and whitefish. Developed camping facilities are also available.

    A few trees in the middle of a desert climate. Nice beach area, and access to the lake. Newer bathrooms with showers. However it is quite noisy, becasue the Highway is not far from most of the sites.
