Jackson Project: Recreation

Picnic Areas

The recreation sites were opened for public use in the summer of 1991 and are being 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.

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).
