Moses Lake -- "Washington's Great Escape" location -- is one of the state's
largest natural fresh water lakes.
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.
