Conconully Weather
Welcome To Conconully

The historic town of Conconully Washington was much larger in the early days. Current Population is approximately 190. In the early 1800's, fur traders were the prominent people in the area. By 1857, prospectors passed through the area on their way to the Cariboo gold fields of British Columbia. In 1858, the county's first permanent resident, Hiram F. "Okanogan" Smith settles near the foot of Lake Osoyoos, Smith planted some of the county's first apple orchards. A few of his apple and pear trees still bear fruit. By 1860, the fur trade dwindled and focus in the area shifted to mineral mining. Conconully was first known as Salmon City, the town changed its name to Conconully in 1888 when boom times swelled its population to over 500. It became the county seat later that year, but lost that to Okanogan in 1915. Conconully was incorporated as a town in 1890. Conconully has survived boom and bust times, depressions, a fire which leveled the business district in 1892, a flood which swept most of it away in 1894. By the 1970s Lumber and cattle ranching grew in importance.

Conconully today is a small rural town surrounded by 8 lakes in the area. The fish & game department stock these lakes with game fish each year. Deer, blue grouse, bear and pheasant draw many during the hunting season. There are many camping sites around the Conconully area. There's RV parks and a large city park right alone side the Lower lake. Also offering 250 miles of snowmobiling and cross-country ski trails for your winter time fun & enjoyment!
