Washington
Northeast Region

Northeast Washington's greatest claim to fame is the massive Grand Coulee Dam, located almost in the center of the region. Extending nearly a mile across the mighty Columbia River, the dam is the largest hydroelectric producer in the country. The 130-mile-long Lake Roosevelt, a National Recreation Area that was produced when the dam was built in 1941, is a testament to its formidable size and strength. With more than 500 miles of accessible waterfront and 30 different species of fish, the lake attracts fishing and boating enthusiasts from throughout the West.

But Lake Roosevelt is only one of a number of natural and man-made attractions in Northeast Washington. The region, which is bounded on the south by the Columbia Basin, is an ecological wonderland. There are more than 35 parks and wildlife areas throughout the region, including Indian Rock Paintings State Park and Riverside State Park, near Spokane, featuring off-road, all-season riding areas and numerous hiking trails. Spokane, the state's third largest city, boasts the greatest number of parks per capita of any city in the United States.

Rock LakeRock Lake, pictured at left, is located approximately 30 miles south of Cheney. GPS: 47.1843; -117.6821. Catch brown and rainbow trout in this deep lake. To learn more about the geology and history of Rock Lake read the article by Spokane Outdoors.

The northern section of this region is rich in historical and ecological landmarks as well. National forests make up the bulk of this area and include attractions such as Kettle Falls and the Sherman Pass Byway, a 35-mile network of heritage sites, wildlife areas and spectacular vistas.

The northwestern edge of the region is dotted by ghost towns and the remnants of a gold rush that had gripped the area a century earlier. Highway 97, which skirts the western edge of this region, provides a scenic tour of Western Washington's historic ranching area, which is bordered at the north end by British Columbia's arid Osoyoos and at the south by the lush countryside of Wenatchee and Leavenworth.
