Overview

Overview

A variety of activities await visitors at the open air Swan Lake Kitchen. Located within the Swan Lake Campground, the kitchen is situated on a large, flat open space near the beach. A day of swimming, boating, fishing or hiking can be topped off with a trip to the kitchen to wind down and enjoy a group meal.

Originally built in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the site was historically preserved in 2009 and retains its charming historic character.

Natural Features:

At an elevation of 3,640 feet, Swan Lake Kitchen is located in a wooded area overlooking the 52-acre Swan Lake. The kitchen is on the north end of the lake near the swimming beach.

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.

Recreation:

Swan Lake has a sandy beach with a swimming dock, plus access to the Swan Lake Trail #14. The trail boasts views of the lake and seasonal huckleberries. Wildlife watching is excellent and the lake is home to loons throughout most of the summer.

Facilities:

The covered kitchen comes with several picnic tables, campfire rings, a stone fireplace, drinking water and vault toilets. The site is suited to groups of 35.

Nearby Attractions:

The city of Republic, home to the Stonerose Interpretive Center, is 15 miles north.
