Artesian Lake and Black Lake are dry lake beds on federal land. The lakes went dry in the last century due to overgrazing typical of Eastern Washington and the lowering of the water table by local wells. Willow trees and golden currant shrubs still line the former shoreline and surface water occasionally gathers on the alkaline flats. Plenty of coyotes and birds of prey to keep you company.
