Roosevelt provides an excellent mix of high wind expert sailing and user friendly launching. The best wind/swell combination sets up on the far Oregon side of the river where a 10 mile fetch of straight river can build some tremendously sized rollers. This area of the river is well known for its numerous 3.5m to 4.0m days in late spring and early fall. Winds are often lighter mid-summer but can occasionally develop as strong Pacific fronts roll through. This is a good place to bring family members who don't sail as the environment is very similar to Maryhill State Park. There are also bathroom facilities and a nice covered viewing area sheltered from the wind. One word of caution is to watch carefully for rattlesnakes as they are quite common in this area.

From the Portland/Seattle area, drive east on I-84 through Hood River, the Dalles and on out to Biggs Junction (exit # 104). At the end of the exit ramp, take a left and proceed over the Sam Hill Bridge across the river into WA. Follow this road up the long hill, past Maryhill State Park, to the HWY 14 junction. Go right (east) on HWY 14 for approximately 30 miles to the town of Roosevelt. Take a right turn onto Roosevelt Ferry Rd. and proceed southward towards the river, pull into the parking area at the very end of this road.

Data from this station is courtesy of the Hanford Meteorological Station. This sensor is owned and maintained by the federal Department of Energy in conjunction with the Hanford Meteorological Station. Marked as "Station 28" and located at 360ft above sea level, we believe this sensor is located near the small convenience store you pass on the way into the park. Since wind readings here are very representative of the conditions on the water, we've added this sensor to our network. Be aware that this is NOT an iW sensor. Therefore, we have no control over it's performance and uptime. Whenever this sensor fails to report, our system interprets that to mean "below threshold conditions". Yes it's less than perfect, but hey, at least we can get a pretty solid reading out at Roosevelt most of the time.
