The following information and links should answer most of your questions about our Okanogan County area and might even entice you to come for a “look-see.” According to County statistics, Okanogan County is the 3rd largest county in the United States at 5281 square miles. With approximately 38,400 total population, that averages about 7 persons per square mile. Now that’s “elbow room!”
If you have never been to visit or have never wandered off the beaten path (Highway 97) on your way to/from the Canadian border, then you must come and find out what you have been missing. If you have fished the peaceful Okanogan River for salmon and steelhead or hooked trout and bass from our countless lakes, you already love the Okanogan. Come again and take in the wide open spaces of orchard-laden deserts and grassy valleys. Inhale fresh mountain air of the pine-scented forests as you stretch out in some of Eastern Washington’s last frontier. Isn’t it time you owned a piece of it?
