click here for a print-friendly version of this pageMoses Lake--"Washington's Great Escape" location--is one of the state's largest natural fresh water lakes. With numerous parks and campgrounds, Moses Lake is an outdoor recreational oasis! In addition to the natural beauty of the Columbia Basin, Moses Lake has many convenient, quality visitor attractions and facilities.

Moses Lake has sun, sand, and water and lots of it! We're Central Washington's favorite outdoor recreational playground. With over 800 hotel, motel or Bed & Breakfast rooms, we've got everything from pampered lakeside luxury to budget priced quality. Camping enthusiasts can choose from several options as well with choices ranging from basic tent sites on up to full hook-up RV sites.

Moses Lake has a wide selection of dining choices--so whether you're in a hurry and looking for a quick burger, fries and shake or if you'd like to sit down to a full service meal with all the trimmings, we can take care of you with over 50 fine establishments offering your choice in food and beverage service.

The history of our community began in 1910. It was then the hamlet of Neppel was founded to serve the needs of a small group of pioneering farmers who settled on the shores of the lake. From its small beginning, Moses Lake has grown and prospered to what it is today, the commercial hub of the Columbia Basin in Grant County, located on north/south State Highway 17 and east/west on Federal Interstate 90. This rural environment provides friendliness and security, yet the urban resources of Seattle or Spokane are within easy driving distance. This is a pleasant living area with a great variety of scenery and recreational opportunities in an area of moderate climate.

The lake, Moses Lake, on which the town lies is made up of three main arms which are over 18 miles long and up to one mile wide. It is the largest, natural body of fresh water in Grant County. Moses Lake has over 120 miles of shoreline and covers 6,500 acres.

8/18/2014 - 9/13/2014 -  Museum of Art/WSU Fine Arts Faculty Focus: Ann Christenson
The Museum of Art/WSU announces a retrospective journey in a Fine Arts Faculty Focus Exhibition by artist Ann Christenson, Aug. 18– Sept. 13. An opening reception will be held 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 28, in the Museum of Art gallery with a talk given by the artist at 7 p.m. Admission to the museum is free. The Museum of Art has a long-standing tradition of presenting work by department of Fine Arts faculty members. Since 2004, these exhibits have alternated large group shows with a biennial exhibit showcasing a recently retired faculty member. This year the museum presents a retrospective exhibit of Ann Christenson's work. Ann Christenson began teaching at WSU in 1990 as a ceramicist. Her work often resembles a confluence of juxtapositions: organic yet geometric, industrial yet primeval, intimate yet worldly, and awkward yet elegant. She draws her influences from her cross-cultural experiences, domestic environment, and the natural world in order to explore space and material. She creates decorative ceramic forms that disrupt convention and echo an unexpected beauty. Intuition and improvisation often come into play, and the diversity of ceramic art throughout the ages fuels her creations. The Museum of Art is located on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium in the Fine Arts Center on the WSU Pullman campus. Gallery hours are Monday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., open until 7 p.m. on Thursdays and closed on Sundays. For more information please contact the museum at 509-335-1910 or visit our website at This exhibit is funded by the members of the Museum of Art/WSU and the Samuel H. and Patricia W. Smith Arts Endowment Fund.
