The mostly mountainous Northeast Region reaches from east of the northern Cascade Range to the northwestern Idaho border. Landscapes include forests, shrub-steppe, agriculture, and grazing lands. The region offers a wide array of recreational opportunities with 27 recreational sites that include campgrounds near lakes and rivers, single-track motorcycle trails, high country hiking and horseback riding, and lowland hunting. In the Northeast Region, DNR manages about 567,000 acres of mostly forested and grazing lands and provides stewardship of 29,000 acres of conservation lands, including Loomis Natural Resource Conservation Area—the largest of DNR's Natural Areas.
