Crystal clear water from a natural spring fills Loon Lake located in Stevens County in northeastern Washington. In a beautiful mountain setting surrounded by towering evergreens of pines, firs, and cedars, Loon Lake is one of the largest lakes in the area.
The area is a favored nesting site for the Common Loon so early settlers proclaimed its name to be Loon Lake in 1881. Ten years later the present town of Loon Lake was officially platted and dedicated in 1891. Today, Loon Lake is a thriving lakefront resort community, population of approximately 31,000, with its major economy coming from recreation, tourism, timber, agriculture, and mining. Lakefront homes and communities offer year round residency as well as vacation home rentals.
With average July high temperatures of 86 degrees, summer is a great time for enjoying Loon Lake's refreshing cool clear water which also affords great fishing opportunities for Black Crappie, Bluegill, Brook Trout Brown Bullhead, Large and Small mouth Bass, Sockeye Salmon, and Yellow Perch. With two public beach areas and boat launches around the lake for easy access to the water for swimming, boating, kayaking, and jet skiing, you are sure to find your favorite spot around Loon Lake.
For time off the water, Loon Lake offers scenic views on trails along the shoreline and in the surrounding forest area among the tall evergreens. Trails are accessible for hiking, biking, or leisurely strolls. In the winter with an average snowfall of 45 inches, snowmobiling is allowed on the snowy trails with average January lows of sixteen degrees.
Stevens County, home of beautiful Loon Lake, has many opportunities for water activities with 306 lakes, 315 ponds, 125 marshes and swampy areas, and 175 creeks. But should you tire of the water, with just a short drive within the county limits, you have quick access to museums, theatres, cultural and historical areas, as well as engineering feats such as the Grand Coulee Dam. In addition, the local Colville Indians operate the Coulee Casino near the Grand Coulee Dam.
