Alta Lake State Park is deemed “a land of fire and water.” Tucked between the hills just under 12 miles from the McKie/Brewster area, Alta Lake has been a long-time respite for anglers, water sports enthusiasts, campers, and families alike.
Though the Carlton Complex wildfire swept through the park in 2014, the scorched landscape has already begun to reclaim the land. The park continues to evolve as a testament to the power and resilience of nature.
The Gamble Sands Golf course is located just under ten miles from the McKie Pond/Brewster area. Designed by the renowned David McLay Kidd, the Sands course is a true links layout set in the high desert overlooking the Columbia River.
