About Us

Welcome to Okanogan County

Our beautiful county is in the heart of North Central Washington State, about 150 miles northwest of Spokane and 220 miles east of Seattle. We share a border with British Columbia, Canada, with the Columbia River to the south, the Cascade Mountains to the west, and Ferry County to the east. The County covers 5,281 square miles, making it the third largest county in the continental United States.

All-Season Playground

Geographically a highland desert, the area features generally arid summers and mild winters. The county is home to about 43,000 people and covers nearly 5,300 square miles. Residents and visitors alike enjoy fishing, boating, hiking, hunting, golf, downhill and cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, off-road vehicle fun, and other great recreational opportunities.

Native Country

Only 30% of the land within the county is in private ownership due to the amount of
state and federal land. The Colville Indian Reservation, located in the southeast corner of the county, occupies approximately 700,000 acres of Okanogan County and is an integral part of our heritage.
