Welcome to the Sunny Okanogan!

Okanogan County is in North Central Washington, bordered north by British Columbia, Canada, south by the Columbia River, west by the Cascades, and Ferry County to the east.  At 5,281 square miles it is the largest county in Washington.  Millions of acres in the Okanogan National Forest playground welcome you year around.  Grand Coulee Dam, the Methow Valley, Conconully Lake, and many other attractions are close by.  Hiking, skiing, fishing or just enjoying 300 or so days of sunshine, the Okanogan is it.
