Autumn is a beautiful season for the great outdoors, there’s the colour of nature as leaves turn and the crisp, clear days with fewer crowds making the pursuit of outdoor adventures much more fun.
Situated right on Lake Roosevelt and the Columbia River, JET Hospitality‘s Columbia Point Resort is a perfect base for outdoor activities all year round but especially so in autumn with fishing, hiking, canoeing, mountain biking and of course relaxing in the magic surrounds of the Pacific North West.
For anglers there are walleye, rainbow trout, sturgeon and smallmouth bass to fish for amongst others.
For hiking try nearby Sherman Creek Point Loop just across the Columbia River or the vast expanse of Colville National Forest and its 1.1 million acres of wilderness. For beautiful waterfalls try Douglas Falls Grange Park or Crystal Falls on the edge of Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge.
Columbia Point Resort is located 90 minutes north of Spokane, Washington and 45 minutes from the Canadian border.
Accommodation on site is in BYO RVs and campervans as well as bungalows.
