About the Lake
The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers manages and maintains Lake Celilo. The lake lies between the states of Washington and Oregon in the northeastern United States. Interstate-84 / US-395 North in Oregon runs along the southern side of the lake, and Hwy 14 in Washington runs along the northern side.

Lake Celilo was formed in 1957 with the completion of the Dalles Lock and Dam. This structure consists of a navigation lock, spillway, powerhouse and fish passage facilities. Various recreational facilities are provided along Lake Celilo, the 24-mile long lake behind the dam.

Dalles Lock and Dam
The Dalles Lock and Dam is 192 miles upriver from the mouth of the Columbia River and two miles east of the city of The Dalles, Oregon on I-84. The dam extends 1.5 miles from the Oregon shore to the navigation lock on the Washington shore.

Directions
From The Dalles, take I-84 East towards Pendleton. Take exit 104 for US-97 toward Yakima Bend. Turn left onto US-97 North. Turn left to merge onto I-84 toward The Dalles and you have reached Lake Celilo.

Recreation Areas
There are 13 recreation areas on Lake Celilo, 10 of which are managed by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers and 3 of which are owned / managed by private parties. Boat ramps are available at 7 of these facilities. .
