Okanogan Valley: The wild, wild west of Washington

If you’re looking for a place where the West is still wild, come to Okanogan County.

It’s the largest county in Washington. But with just eight people per square mile, you can stick to the back roads, enjoy the wide open spaces and see more wildlife and farm animals than people. If you’re up for a little wild-west action, don’t miss the Omak Stampede and World Famous Suicide Race, featuring a world-class rodeo and a unique American Indian horse race, along with tribal dancing and drumming competitions. It’s four days long, always the second weekend in August, Aug. 7-10 this year.
