Curlew Creek Campground

There is excellent fishing for smallmouth bass and Kokanee salmon in the reservoir. 

Try your luck at fly fishing for rainbow trout just below the dam.

Waterskiing is another favored activity here. The Curlew boat ramp is accessible.

The Curlew docks were weather damaged in late March 2017, due to a rapidly rising waterline caused from extreme increase temperature and wind event. Docks have since been repaired. 

An alternative location just a short distance from Curlew is Pine.  This locations has sections of launch/recovery docks and a 12 feet wide cement ramp.
