Pend Oreille County Park

Whether you are planning a family picnic, hiking with friends or just craving some solitude in a magnificent setting, Pend Oreille County’s park and trails can provide a great outdoor experience.

In the early 1980’s the State of Washington granted jurisdiction of the 440 acres of this park to Pend Oreille County. It is located just north of the Spokane County line on Highway 2 and offers primitive tent and small RV camping with a few amenities. Wildlife such as elk, white-tailed deer, moose, black bear, bobcat, and many small mammals as well as bird species are abundant in the park but the main attractions are the majestic old growth trees found in the area.
