Palmer lake is a hidden gem in Okanogan County, WA. The lake is surrounded by mountains, rolling hills, and orchards. It covers 2100 acres, is about 5 miles long and 80 feet deep. Palmer Lake provides a myriad of outdoor opportunities throughout the year. The boat launch is excellent and located a quick 3 minute drive from the lodge.
- Swimming, waterskiing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, tubing - you name it!
- There are very few boats, the lake is often like glass. In summertime the water gets quite warm.
- In the wintertime many people get out on the lake for ice skating and ice fishing.
- Palmer Lake has great and diverse fishing including rainbow trout, kokanee salmon ,eastern brook trout, brown trout, Lahontan cutthroat trout, and black crappie. It is also well known by insiders for both large and smallmouth bass. There is also burbot, bluegill, northern pikeminnow, lake whitefish, and peamouth, yellow perch and walleye.
- The lake is open to fish year-round.
- The Lodge is situated on 30 acres with 300+ feet of lake front.
- The beach is made of small smooth and flat stones. The beach is great for kids, shallow enough for small kids to wade/swim safely close to shore but deep enough to swim and allow for a boat tie-up off shore.
- The local road to Loomis divides the property, with the lake on one side and the lodge on the other.
- Bring your boat, the lodge has a dock plus a large anchor with a buoy and boat tie-up available just off the beach.
