Jackson Project: Recreation

The recreation sites were opened for public use in the summer of 1991 and have been improved as part of our 2011 relicensing. Our facilities provide access for fishing and boating, hiking, picnicking and public restrooms.

The recreation sites are open from April through October, depending on weather conditions. They are day-use only. You can leave your car overnight only on the east side of the South Shore Site parking lot if you plan to hike in to the DNR's Greider and Boulder Sites for camping.

From the Gateway Site you can hike to our new Culmback Dam Site and across Culmback Dam to our new North Shore Site. From the South Shore Recreation Site, you can hike to our Nighthawk and Bear Creek Recreation Sites. This trail also leads to the Department of Natural Resources' (DNR) Greider and Boulder Lakes. (View map.)

Please use caution while driving on the roads around Spada Lake Reservoir. Drive slowly and look out for rough road, fallen trees or rocks, and equipment.

Public use and enjoyment of the Jackson Hydroelectric Project recreation and mitigation lands in the Sultan Basin is subject to the regulations established in PUD Directive #73. Click here to view PUD Directive #73 (PDF).
