General Information

Description - Okanogan State Park is a 45-acre park with 1,000 feet of freshwater shoreline.

Park amenities include a picnic shelter, three picnic sites and a comfort station. Parking is provided for 28 vehicles.

Recreation - Primary activities are viewing, an Interpretive Center and picnicking.

Climate - Washington's climate varies with each region because the Cascade Mountains split the state and alter weather patterns. Fort Okanogan State Park, located east of the mountains, receives significantly less rainfall than regions west of the mountains with an average annual precipitation of twelve inches.

Average summer temperatures are 94 degrees maximum and 50 degrees minimum. Because central Washington is landlocked and subject to winter winds, winter temperatures are much colder than those in western Washington.

Location - Fort Okanogan State Park is located nine miles north of Bridgeport State Park, overlooking Lake Pateros, on State Route 17 in Okanogan County.
