Come and play in our parks
Besides generating clean, renewable hydropower, our Clark Fork and Spokane River Projects provide abundant recreational opportunities. They are surrounded by thousands of acres of land that offer outdoor recreational activities such as boating, camping, fishing, bird watching, swimming, hiking, and more.
The Clark Fork River and Spokane River are generally open to the public and accessible from both land and water for day-use recreational activities. As you enjoy the many activities this area has to offer, please play it safe above and below a dam and obey all posted warning signs.
Plan your next day trip along the Clark Fork River or Spokane River.
Avista has begun exploring a park that includes a new river access point with a non-motorized boat launch. One design option includes closing a portion of Upriver Drive to create a linear park and separate Centennial Trail from vehicle traffic. In this process, we have commissioned a traffic study and a habitat management plan.
