About: Conconully State Park is an 81-acre camping park with 5,400 feet of freshwater shoreline in north central Washington. Established as the oldest Bureau of Reclamation irrigation project in this part of the country, the park dates back to 1910. State Parks assumed administration in 1945.
Established as the oldest Bureau of Reclamation irrigation project, the park provided picnic facilities, a baseball field and a school location for the historic silver-mining town of Conconully. Conconully, which was the original county seat of Okanogan County, was washed away by a flood in 1894. An early schoolhouse and a replica of the town's first courthouse are still in place on the grounds. The park dates back to 1910. Administration was assumed by State Parks in 1945.
The town of Conconully was established by charter in 1887. It was originally settled as a mining town. From 1889-1914 Conconully served as the Okanogan County Seat. When the county seat was moved in 1914, the old county hall was torndown and the lumber was used for the construction of the current day community hall. In the 1890's Conconully was decimated by fire and floods, but the will of the settlers and miners prevailed and Conconully lives on today.
