The town of
Tonasket Washington has a population of about 1000.
nestled in the Okanogan River Valley. This area was originally settled
as an Indian encampment named after it's leader, "Chief Tonasket."
When the Pacific Fur Company was operating Fort Okanogan at the mouth of
the Okanogan River as far back as 1811, Tonasket has been visited by all
who look for fun outdoor activities associated with mountains and streams.
From the early day trappers who sought the hides of the game that teemed
in the area, to the modern-day pioneer looking for country unspoiled by
the sights and sounds of the city, Tonasket is a land for all the seasons
lover. Surrounded by mountains, the Okanogan river, various streams, lakes
and valleys, this is a great place to visit or live. There are still log
cabins and other signs of the state's earliest settlers, making the area
a photographer's paradise. Today, Tonasket offers a relaxed, pleasant atmosphere.
With many great things to do and see.
