I was able to dig around in that page and the only method that works for me is that I sent them a Facebook message. We'll see.
I need my traditional Memorial Day.

Here we go... Almost instant response:
"Hey, Kip! Have you checked out our recreation closures page? https://www.nwp.usace.army.mil/Missions/Recreation/Site-Status/

Looks like Roosevelt is open for day use. But honestly, I've personally never been out there. So I can double-check check with our rangers. Might not have a solid answer until Monday, though."

That sounds like a ton of fun! Sorry you had to cancel last year, and I sincerely hope you can all get out there this May.

I'll double-check with our rangers. Worst-case scenario I get you an answer sometime Monday. Best-case, I get back to you very shortly.

Of course, even if it's open for y'all, we're still asking all of our visitors to follow the COVID precautions to which we've all become accustomed this past year (socially distance of possible, mask up if you can't, etc).

Portland District, US Army Corps of Engineers sent Today at 5:14 PM
You should be good to go, Kip! Open for day use now, and according to one of our park rangers stationed at The Dalles, it should be open for dry camping by Memorial Day.

Speaking of closures since last spring. Anyone know if the non locals ban has been lifted at Rock Creek Park?

good info Kip. Thanks for reaching out via FB. Fingers crossed we can camp there Memorial Day weekend.

I emailed the point of contact from the website and this was the response:

Here is our website regarding the Recreation Sites.

Last Memorial Day... in the height of the pandemic, we drove a few hundred feet up those gravel roads into BN country. The Army Corps of Engineers guy saw us and did not comment.
