Okanogan County is the largest county in the state. The county seat is at Okanogan, and its largest city is Omak. The first county seat was Ruby, Washington, which has now been a ghost town for more than 100 years. The name derives from an Okanagan language word meaning "rendezvous."
Larger than several states, Okanogan Country is bordered on the north by the Canadian Okanagan, on the south and east by the Columbia River Basin and Lake Roosevelt, and on the west by the 10,000 foot peaks of the majestic North Cascade Mountains.
Okanogan Country offers wide-open spaces teeming with wildlife, spectacular scenery and rural charm. It features a diverse blend of snow covered peaks, small towns, western history, art galleries and museums, live theatre, farmers markets and fresh from the field produce stands, music festivals, rodeos, country fairs and two famous dams. The area is dotted with hundreds of lakes, rivers and streams, and blessed by sunny days and clear, star-filled nights.
Throughout Okanogan Country, whitewater rafting, boating, fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, horseback riding, wilderness packing, hunting and more are available from spring through fall.
