Lake Roosevelt Country is the northeast corner of Washington State. The largest city in Eastern Washington and Lake Roosevelt Country is Spokane, WA.

 

Lake Roosevelt

By far, the largest feature in northeast Washington is Lake Roosevelt. Lake Roosevelt is the lake formed behind Grand Coulee Dam. Lake Roosevelt is part of the mighty Columbia River System. The Lake is over 151 miles long with 600 miles of shoreline and offers a vast array of recreational opportunities including houseboats, fishing, camping, hunting, and boating.

 

The National Park Service has 27 campgrounds and 5 marinas on the shores of Lake Roosevelt in the Lake Roosevelt National Recreational Area. Houseboat rentals are a major attraction on the lake.

Grand Coulee Dam

Grand Coulee Dam is located on the Columbia River is northeast Washington State. Grand Coulee provides water to approximately 600,000 acres of land for irrigation in the Columbia Basin Project.

 

The dam has a visitor center that is worth a day of your time. We suggest that you set aside the time to visit if you have never been there. They have a laser light show on the dam at night.

 

What is in northeast Washington?

In the northeast region of Washington State you will find Colville and Kaniksu National Forests. You will also find the Columbia River, Grand Coulee Dam, and Lake Roosevelt. The main cities in northeast Washington are Kettle Falls, Colville, Newport, Republic, Davenport, and the largest cities in eastern Washington, Spokane and Spokane Valley.

 

Even Spokane is closely attached to Lake Roosevelt, the Spokane River that runs right through downtown Spokane empties into Lake Roosevelt 63-miles downstream.
