Weigh in on Snake River recreation opportunities


August 29, 2019

SNAKE River—The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Walla Walla District, is preparing to revise the 1969 Little Goose Master Plan and the 1966 Lower Monumental Master Plan. Open houses were held, one in Dayton on Aug. 21 and in Pasco on Aug. 21, with little attendance.

The meetings were designed to inform the public on plan revisions and to receive comments on how users would like to see the Corps manage the natural and recreational resources related to Lower Monumental and Little Goose in the future.

Requests for the addition of amenities such as water and restrooms at Texas Rapids Campgrounds, requests to reopen the Central Ferry Campground and comments in support of or against continued day use at Lyons Ferry are examples of possible requests/comments.

Comments are still being accepted through Sept. 13 through U.S. mail, email or online. Any comments received will be considered.

Mail comments to: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, ATTN:  Little Goose Master Plan, 201 North 3rd Avenue, Walla Walla, WA  99362 or visit to complete the online form.
