All Grant PUD recreation sites closed until further notice.


Relax, play, and explore

We have recreation sites with grassy areas, great beaches, walking and biking trails, and play equipment for a fun family afternoon. Want to camp overnight? Our campgrounds offer both park-like settings and rustic, back-to-nature surroundings. We have several boat launches up and down the river where you can launch your watercraft for free. We also have two great centers for education - the Grant PUD Visitors Center and the Wanapum Heritage Center. Click here for printable recreation-site map.
