- Throughout the Columbia River Plateau region, you can be as sedate or active as you want. Moses Lake, for example, is a haven for water sports enthusiasts, boaters, and sun lovers. Cyclists, golfers and adventurers take advantage of the expansive views and almost ever-present sunshine. The Columbia Plateau is the major agricultural region of the interior Columbia River Basin and includes the cities of Ellensburg, Moses Lake, Pullman, Soap Lake, Quincy and Ephrata. If you want to hear and see a symphony of wildlife, head down to the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge where you can find blue heron, tundra swans and sandhill cranes. Another stop might be the Grand Coulee Dam that forms Bank Lake and creates a 90-mile long shoreline thatís great for fishing. Stay for the laser light show at night thatís projected on the dam! The Columbia River Plateau is the geographic heart of Washington. Come and see earth sculpted by the ice age, enjoy incredible views of mountains, lakes and rivers, taste the fruit grown in the steppes of the high desert.
