The beautiful town of Electric City in Washington is located on the shores of Banks Lake, just a few miles from Lake Roosevelt and the Grand Coulee Dam. Here, visitors can enjoy outdoor pursuits such as boating, camping, hiking, climbing, fishing and more.
Steamboat Rock State Park is a wonderful park with acres of space for camping and hiking, as well as boating and fishing on the lake (these waters are home to rainbow trout, walleye, smallmouth bass among others). Lake Roosevelt is a 130-mile reservoir created by the Grand Coulee Dam and is a national recreation area perfect for swimming, or, if you don't want to get wet, there are pleasant walking trails here too.
Head to the Grand Coulee Dam to see the largest dam in the US and marvel at the powerful Columbia River behind it. Take a tour to get the lowdown on how the achitectural-wonder works. Visitors should also make their way to the Colville Confederated Tribes Museum for information and history on the many tribes of native people who have lived, fished, and hunted in the area.
July and August are best for warm and sunny weather.
