The Spokane District offers a wide range of recreational opportunities and many recreation sites for visitors to BLM public lands throughout Washington State -- from hiking in the Channeled Scablands of Eastern Washington to kayaking in the San Juan Islands on the west side. Many opportunities await you here; wildlife viewing, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, hunting, camping/picnicking, and horseback riding are just a few.

Within the Spokane District you’ll find various habitats, from pine forest to shrub-steppe and Palouse grassland. Other features include wetlands, meadows, basalt cliffs, and ocean islands and rocks. The Channeled Scablands, carved out during the Glacial Lake Missoula floods roughly 12,000 years ago, are one of the unique landscapes managed by Spokane District BLM. Please visit the Spokane District Recreation Site Page for season dates and site specific opportunities.
