Sprague Lake Public Access Closed July 27-Sept. 7 For Boat-Launch Project
July 1, 2015
SPOKANE – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) public access site on the southwest end of Sprague Lake in Adams County will be closed to all entry July 27-Sept. 7 for a construction project to improve boat-launching and parking facilities.
During the closure, a contractor will install a floating dock for loading and unloading boats in the launch area, and make improvements to the parking lot consistent with the Americans with Disabilities Act, said Josh Harmon, WDFW northcentral region access manager.
The entrance to the access area off Danekas Road will be gated with a sign explaining the six-week closure, Harmon said.
Harmon noted that there are two resorts on the lake with boat launches – Sprague Lake Resort on the east end and Four Seasons Campground and Resort on the northwest side. There is also an unimproved, privately owned, pay-to-launch access site off Danekas/Max Harder Road just east of the public access.
The improvements at the WDFW access site are funded through a 2013-15 Washington Recreation and Conservation Office Boating Facilities Program grant.
