Roza is located in the scenic Yakima River Canyon, 21 miles south of Ellensburg, Washington, which cuts through massive basalt cliffs and rolling desert hills.
This canyon has been designated as a state scenic route and offers excellent wildlife viewing, fishing in a Blue Ribbon trout stream, family river rafting and camping.
Roza is the main take-out for all river floaters, as it is located ½ mile above Roza Dam. Motorized vessels are permitted from the Roza boat launch down to Roza dam. Upstream of the Roza boat launch the river is limited to non-motorized boats only. There is a concrete boat launch at the site to accommodate motorized boat users.
From Ellensburg, Washington, take Hwy 821 (Canyon Road) south through the Yakima River Canyon. Roza is located at milepost 7.
