Welcome to Tonasket and the surrounding area! We are a small town with big ambitions, and very friendly, helpful people. We probably have more slogans than towns many times larger. “All roads lead to…Tonasket”, and “Tonasket: A Land of All Seasons” are just two of our very apt slogans.
We are just a part of the bigger picture which is beautiful Okanogan County. Tonasket’s population is only 1,000 while the County boasts 30,000 friendly folks. We are one of many towns in this County comprised of approximately 10,000 square miles. The economy has primarily an agricultural base but offers a wide variety of services.
Our area offers many activities such as wildlife watching, hiking, snow mobile trails, hunting, fishing, boat racing, snow skiing, water skiing, rodeos, demolition derbies, a garlic festival, and out-house racing (serious racers only!), just to mention a few.
Whether you entertain or wish to be entertained, we can accommodate you. We have writer’s clubs, garden clubs, and horseman clubs. We dare anyone to take in all the events in Okanogan County; if they did, there wouldn’t be time to do anything else!
Our Visitors Center is unique in that it includes not only a parking lot, but also a park to relax in and public restrooms. We also share our meeting room, internet service, telephone, and copier/printer with visitors to our area or the local Cottage Industry. We invite you to come inside our remodeled building which was once a personal residence, bus depot, restaurant, and real estate office. We are centrally located in town, and within short walking distance to the many wonderful shops staffed by friendly people that have chosen to make Tonasket their home. The friendly merchants and other townspeople are always glad to meet a new face; you won't stay a stranger long!
We encourage you to visit all the areas of our site, where we hope you will discover what our area truly has to offer.
