Colville Indian Reservation Tourism

The Colville Indian Reservation offers a vast variety of natural and recreational tourism activities for any age to truly experience and enjoy. The Colville Indian Reservation spans 1.4 million acres of North Central Washington primarily in Okanogan and Ferry counties. It is bordered to the East by the Okanogan River and to the West and South by Lake Roosevelt and the Columbia River.

Among its attractions include the Grand Coulee Dam which displays an awe-striking laser light show during the summer months where the enormous man-made structure illustrates its sheer capacity by spilling water down its face while a complex series of lasers tell the story of Lake Roosevelt, the Columbia river, the Grand Coulee Dam and the settlers around it.

Activities are also abundant within the boundaries and surrounding the Colville Indian Reservation. Most notably, the Omak Stampede and the world famous Suicide Race takes place in early August. The race features a 225 feet downhill sprint before crossing the Okanogan River and dashing 500 yards to the finish line in the Stampede Arena. This race was added to the Omak Stampede schedule of events in 1935 after initial being raced in both Inchelium and Keller, WA.
