Blackwell Launch To Shut For Season

The Bureau of Land Management’s Blackwell Island boat launch will close for the season on Sunday evening (Oct. 16) .  The popular launch site, located on the south side of the Spokane River, has been in operation for nine seasons. Blackwell Island recreation area will also be closed to day-use activities after Sunday.  The main gate will be closed for the season and toilet facilities winterized.
