unspoiled recreational areas, historic landmarks and modern amenities

W

elcome to beautiful North Central Washington and lower British Columbia, one of the greatest “undiscovered” and unspoiled recreational areas in the Pacific Northwest. By traveling north from Wenatchee along the many scenic byways like the Okanogan Trails Byway on the International Discovery Loop, you will experience two countries, many cultures and unique history and heritage. The area abounds with ghost towns, historical landmarks, abandoned (and active) mines, camping, fishing, hunting, boating, swimming, golfing, rock climbing, sightseeing, wildlife viewing, horseback riding—you name it! Canada’s only desert region lies just north of the border, in southern British Columbia from Osoyoos to Kelowna. The area is not only Canada’s fruit basket, it also has a booming wine industry. There are wine festivals and tastings and wineries in the Osoyoos and Oliver areas – all welcome visitors. Back in the United States, north central Washington is staking out a wine industry as well, with established and new wineries from Chelan to Oroville. The Okanogan Valley has also become one of the largest producers of legal marijuana in the state with growers taking advantage of the area's moderate climate and warm sunny days. Although fishing and hunting remain two of the biggest recreational pastimes in the area, watchable wildlife activities like birding are increasing in popularity. This region offers a variety of flora and fauna for wildlife fans to explore. The Sinlahekin Wildlife Area near boasts an array of wildlife, including butterflies that attract folks from all over to see them, including some rare species. Even though the area is semi-desert, the region offers several fine lakes for swimming, boating, jet skiing and fishing. Water recreation choices range from the international Lake Osoyoos to internationally famous Lake Chelan, from the mighty Columbia River to the undiscovered Similkameen. Just west of Tonasket there's the Many Lakes Recreation area with Palmer, Whitestone and Spectacle, as well as world class fly fishing on the fly-only Chopaka.

If wide open spaces are the thing, the wide-open plateau is the spot; the drive between Bridgeport and Waterville, over the top as it were, is full of straight roads and big skies. Orondo, along the Columbia River, offers fruit stands and a growing retirement and vacation spot, with new homes going along the highway to take advantage of recreation on the river and the warm summer sun. The Columbia, Methow and Okanogan rivers provide excellent fishing, as do the many local lakes. There’s good water for skiing or just a relaxing boat ride. With spring and the snowmelt, smaller local rivers provide plenty of good whitewater rafting, then calm down in the height of summer, making for fun tubing. Summer days can hit 100 degrees or more, so one of the rivers, the swimming holes or local pools might be appealing. How about taking a hike, or maybe a mountain bike ride, maybe even a horseback ride? Okanogan County boasts more miles of recreational trails than anywhere else in the country. Oroville lies at the midpoint of the 1200 mile Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail. Distance hikers coming west from Glacier Park, Mont. on the PNT come down into the Okanogan Valley through Whistler Canyon trailhead on Hwy. 97 just three miles north of Oroville. After rest and replenishment they leave town on the Similkameen River Trail west to Enloe Dam and onward through the Pasaytan Wilderness, North Cascades and on to the Pacific. This new National Scenic Trail traversing the Northwest from east to west is a modern day Lewis and Clark Journey to he had on foot or horseback. This is a world class hiking experience. For more on the trails see www.pnt.org. Golfers have a plethora of choices, from the Oroville Golf Club to Lake Woods in Bridgeport, Alta Lake near Pateros to Omak and Okanogan and Chelan, as well as fine courses in Osoyoos and Oliver. Camping and RV facilities are available at numerous locations from Waterville to Oroville. Again, welcome to north central Washington and lower British Columbia. We hope you will stay a while and enjoy all the area has to offer. Just remember to bring your camera. RECREATIONLAND 2017

OROVILLE roville, Okanogan County’s most northerly city, Oroville, is framed on the east by the scenic Okanogan Highlands, a magnet for all persuasions of outdoor enthusiasts, from birders to bikers. To the west is a mecca of lakes and rivers with plenty of shoreline camping spots, making Oroville a convenient base for exploring the whole region.

For swimming, fishing and water or jet skiing right in town there’s mammoth Osoyoos Lake where families enjoy long sunny days at the beach and stay at Veteran’s Memorial Park’s 86-unit RV/tent camping facilities. The Oroville area boasts several other day use parks like Deep Bay Park on Lake Osoyoos, most with electrical hook-ups, and smaller parks in town. Other lakes in the area are Wannacut, a popular fishing spot and Blue Lake, whose crystal blue waters bring visitors from miles around. On the southern outskirts of Oroville, Whistler Canyon trailhead joins the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail that stretches from the Continental Divide to the coast. Similkameen River Trail, just west of town, makes a pleasant seven-mile day hike following the old Great Northern Railroad route across a steel and concrete bridge toward Enloe Dam. History buffs usually stop by Oroville’s Old Depot Museum to get oriented before setting out for the area’s hill towns and ghost towns with tiny cemeteries left over from the gold rush era. Just minutes from downtown, Oroville Golf Club is a scenic nine hole dual tee course The front side measures 2926 yards and the back is 2991 yards totaling 5917 yards with a par of 72 and a slope rating of 129. Perched above the Similkameen River, the course offers plenty of interesting elevation changes and spectacular background views.

For almost a century, May Festival has been drawing former Orovillians home the second weekend of the month. Other events in May include the Wenatchee-based Run to the Border motorcycle charity ride which also brings a Canadian contingent of motorcyclists to Oroville as well. In June is the Lake Osoyoos Cup, features jet ski racing off Deep Bay Park. August brings the Rally at the Border Blues Festival, which features local and regional blues artists from throughout the northwest. As Hwy. 97’s international gateway, Oroville sees its share of American visitors headed toward one of Canada’s major tourist attractions, just four miles north. Here is Canada’s prime wine grape growing region with an abundance of premium wineries and many golf courses that attract weekend visitors from Vancouver and vacationers from throughout Canada who fly into Kelowna International Airport for a taste of BC’s Southern Okanagan and Washington’s Northern Okanogan. For more information about Oroville and the surrounding region see www.orovillewashington.com and www.oroville-wa.com.

Oroville’s arid landscape is rich in agriculture on the valley floor, where 11 varieties of cherries and seven kinds of apples predominate. Here you can pick up provisions right from the orchards, produce stands, wineries and Saturday farmer’s market. Summer is a particularly delicious time to visit. Enjoy wine tastings spring to fall at the local wineries, live music some Saturdays at Oroville’s craft brewery and restaurants to suit many tastes, from authentic Mexican cuisine to farm to table fare, an assortment of American menus, pizza and food for travelers on the go.

Take A Hike! IT’S TIME TO START PLANNING YOUR SUMMER OUTDOOR ADVENTURES After a long winter it’s time to start planning a summer full of outdoor adventure. Tonasket and Oroville residents are fortunate to have an excellent trail system at their doorsteps.

Chesaw, Molson, Aeneas Valley, Wauconda & Bonaparte

T

THE OKANOGAN HIGHLANDS here are many small communities in the Okanogan Highlands enjoyed for their recreation as well as their history and culture.

Chesaw, an old gold mining town, was named for Chinese miner Joe Che Saw and is 21.5 miles east of Oroville. The town has a general store with gas pumps, a tavern and art gallery. The tiny town’s population has dwindled to just a handful, but each year the family-oriented Fourth of July Rodeo is a huge draw. In August, the town invites people to participate in one of the many activities planned around the “Hot August Nights” celebration. But there is more to Chesaw. There’s beautiful scenery and wildlife, hiking, camping and fishing in the National Forest and at nearby Lost, Beaver and Beth lakes. There's lodging and recreation at the nearby Eden Valley Guest Ranch as well. Molson was initially financed by John W. Molson of Canadian brewing and banking fame. The three-story brick schoolhouse is now the Molson School Museum. It houses artifacts and a souvenir shop. Many exhibits reflect the area’s mining and farming past and other facets of rural life. Today, the original townsite is a ghost town and is the Old Molson Outdoor Museum with a variety of early day town buildings and agricultural equipment. Both museums are sponsored by the county historical society and manned and maintained by a local group of dedicated volunteers. Each June, Molson celebrates its Mid-Summer Festival, reflecting the area's Nordic past, with a walk/run, May pole decorating and dancing, music, food, arts and crafts, horseshoe tournament, old-fashioned kids' games, frisbee golf, a car show and much more. The NW Ice Fishing Festival draws anglers from all over the northwest to try their luck in nearby Sidley and Molson lakes each February. Fishing and camping are among the great number of recreation possibilities around the Aeneas Valley area. There are several small lakes located along Aeneas Valley Road – Round, Long and El lakes. Crawfish and Lyman lakes are not far away either. The community of Wauconda, 24 miles east of Tonasket, pops up along Highway 20 like an oasis, inviting and colorful, after the vast miles of ranches and rolling hills that surround it. There is a tiny U.S. Post Office, grocery store and café that harkens back to a simpler time. Wauconda hosts a Flag Day Celebration each year, as well as an annual car show and 50's sock hop mid-July. It’s only a short drive to Lost, Beaver and Beth lakes, which offer some of the areas best fishing and camping opportunities. This same area offers some of the most varied hunting you will find anywhere. You can also enjoy boating, swimming, hiking, snowmobiling and other winter sports.

A Recreation Paradise

B

BONAPARTE onaparte is home to many recreation opportunities throughout the year – from camping, hiking, wild life viewing, fishing and boating in the spring and summer to snowmobiling in the winter.

Bonaparte Lake Resort is located on the shores of the beautiful mountain lake of the same name, midway between Tonasket and Republic, six miles north of state Highway 20. Nearby is the Boy Scouts of America campground where many young scouts earn merit badges during summer camp. Also, it's only a short drive to Lost, Beaver and Beth lakes, which offer, like Bonaparte, some of the area's best fishing and camping opportunities. This same area has some of the most varied hunting you will find anywhere. In the winter the resort serves as headquarters for the snowmobiling club and is a great place to warm up with some food during the annual snowmobile drag races. In addition to being a great spot to fish, Bonaparte Resort has campsites, trailer hookups and cozy rustic cabins, as well as a laundromat. Be sure to bring bedding, towels and kitchen equipment. The general store has groceries, ice, propane and fishing supplies; the lakeside cafĂŠ features a beautiful view and delicious homestyle meals. The owners of the resort welcome people to come to Bonaparte for the perfect old-fashioned family vacation.

History In 1886, the U.S. government built a water-powered sawmill at Bonaparte for the local Native Americans. By 1904 there was also a livery barn, two story rooming house and a store. The government also placed a shingle mill and flour gristmill there and Bonaparte even had a post office, although the construction of Fancher Dam later flooded that site.

Loomis - Center of the Many Lakes Recreation Area

L

ocated 16 miles northwest of Tonasket and 16 miles southwest of Oroville, the little town of Loomis rests in the center of the “Many Lakes” area. While the town is small, the area draws folks from around the state and the province of BC from the start of fishing season in the spring, until the end of hunting season in

late fall. Loomis is also a natural stop as you "Cruise the Loop," as it's known to the locals. Start in Oroville and follow the Loomis-Oroville Highway along the Similkameen River, or do it in reverse, starting in Tonasket. No matter which way you do it, The Loop is a great drive and popular ride with motorcyclists. There are many chances to see wildlife and nature along the way and Loomis has fuel for your rig, as well as your body, if you want a snack or a chance to sit down and have a meal. Throughout the summer, visitors come and enjoy a variety of camping sites along one of the many lakes or even in the coolness of the local mountains along a meandering stream. Loomis is the center of some of the best fishing and hunting in the state. The trout and bass are large and the mule deer plentiful. Nearby lakes include Spectacle, Palmer and Whitestone. Other fishing opportunities abound in the Sinlahekin Wildlife Area in the lakes and Toats Coulee Creek – and Chopaka is a well-known fly-fishing-only mountain lake. The Wildlife Area also has marked trails around Forde and Connors Lake and you can find a wide variety of wildflowers and butterflies in the spring and summer. Although small, many amenities can be found within a few short blocks. Nearby wildlife is abundant with bighorn sheep and deer that can sometimes be seen strolling through town. Stick around and you may see black bear or mountain goats as well. In winter people are drawn to the area for the hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails in the mountains and the ice fishing on Palmer Lake, where people have great success landing exotic burbot, also known as fresh water ling cod.

Washington’s best kept secret

O

OKANOGAN

kanogan, incorporated in 1907, became the county seat of the largest county in area in Washington in 1914. Highlights for the town include the annual county fair, Sunny Okanogan Days and Harvest Festival. Being the county seat, Okanogan is also the home to the historic Okanogan County Courthouse. There is also the Okanogan County Museum, which features an extensive history of the county, as well as many “Frank Matsura” photographs from the famous Japanese frontier photographer who made the Okanogan his home before the turn of the last century. Outside the museum is a replica of an Old West town of the early 1900s and a replica of the town’s original firehouse. Outdoor displays include farm equipment and what is believed to be the Okanogan’s oldest standing structure, a log cabin built in 1879. The museum is located adjacent to the Legion Park, which can accommodate overnight RV parking (no hookup) for a small fee. For more information see: www.okanoganchamber.com.

R

RIVERSIDE iverside, about six miles north of Omak, is one of the most important towns in Okanogan County’s early history. A quaint and picturesque town, it sits between the Okanogan River and Highway 97. Riverside was once a booming commercial center. As head of navigation for the Okanogan River, goods transported via steam paddle wheeler up the Columbia and further up the Okanogan could not get past that point. So Riverside became an important connection between the then isolated county and more populated areas of the region. 22

The town is full of recreation options, many at the 72-acre East Side Park. The park includes three softball fields, the newly renovated Stampede and Rodeo Arena, an olympic-size pool, two soccer fields, Babe Ruth and Little League diamonds, covered picnic area, archery range, horseshoe pits, lighted tennis courts and a basketball court.
