The 1.1 million acre Colville National Forest lies in the northeast corner of Washington. The forest's great salmon runs first attracted native Americans to the area, then miners, homesteaders and fur trappers followed. The variety of resources and natural beauty in the region continues to attract visitors.
Three mountain ranges, the Okanogan, Kettle River and Selkirk, run through the Colville Forest.
