Loomis State Forest
The Loomis State Forest was created in 1925 as part of a federal land grant to the Common School Trust—that helps fund construction of our state's kindergarten through 12th grade public schools. Loomis forest is in Okanogan County just east of the north central Cascade Mountain Range, 12 miles west of Tonasket.
In the 1990s DNR’s Northeast Region established a planning process to address road construction, timber harvesting, wildlife habitat, soil stability, water quality and more in the Loomis. to develop the Loomis State Forest Landscape Plan, provided here.
Later, part of the Loomis State Forest was purchased and designated the Loomis Natural Resources Conservation Area.
