Where is Ferry County?

Located in the northeastern corner of Washington State, Ferry County shares its northern boundary with British Columbia, Canada and its eastern and southern boundary with the Columbia River. The south half of the county falls within the boundaries of the Colville Confederated Tribes and the north half is largely occupied by the Colville National Forest. WA State Highway 20 runs east and west through the County and Highway 21 runs north and south.

The Ferry County Fairgrounds, site of the 2017 WASAR Conference, is three miles east of the town of Republic. RV sites and camping are available.
