Things to do
The Inn… is nestled along the hillside at the southern entrance to historic Coulee Dam. The activities right outside your door range from short walking tours, to longer hikes, tour of the dam, and more. The short historic walking tour around Coulee Dam with interpretive signs, bring to life the history of the community.
Across the street is the Visitor Center for the Grand Coulee Dam. At the Center you can see movies and displays on the history of the dam or take a tour of the largest hydroelectric power station in the United States, and the seventh largest in the world. During the Summer you can enjoy the Laser Light Show in the evening.
Several hiking trails, including the Candy Point Trail, are a short distance from the Inn. From short, moderately challenging hikes to longer, aggressive trails, the Grand Coulee Dam Area has hikes to suite a variety of interests. If you’d like to see some of the local wildlife, grab your binoculars and walk down to the Washington Flats Wildlife Refuge. Or, if you’d rather go for a bike ride, there’s a 6.2 mile long downriver trail that follows the Columbia River.
Interested in fishing? Lake Roosevelt and Banks Lake are a fisherman’s paradise. If you would rather go boating, there are several boat ramps within a couple of miles. Love the beach? Spring Canyon is the spot where you can soak up the sun or relax in the shade, have a barbecue, or go for a swim in Lake Roosevelt.
