Eloika Lake, Spokane County, Washington


Eloika Lake (660 acres)
Eloika Lake is located 7 miles north of Chattaroy off the Newport Highway in a wooded area, Eloika has one resort (Jerrys Landing Resort) with primitive launch (no power lines), RV & Tent sites, cabins, fishing boat & canoe rentals, etc. There is also a public boat launch (Grays Landing) with restrooms on E. Bridges Rd. The road to get to this public launch site has no visible public access sign, but when you get to the right road to turn on there is a blinking red light and Millers One Stop Store kitty corner to Gray's Landing; turn left (west on this road) here. This is a fine lake to boat on but is pretty weedy so is best suited for fishing. Sailing on this lake is possible via a shallow draft sailboat on toward the middle of the lake. There is a lot of weeds and lily pads around the edge of this lake so stay in the middle to avoid rudder(s) and motor intakes from being fouled up with weeds. Directions: From Spokane, go north on US 2, go 23 miles to Grays land Road, then west on E. Bridges Rd. 1 mile. To access Jerrys Landing Resort from Spokane travel North on Hwy 2 towards Newport 23 miles and follow signs - Call 509-292-2337 (the road to get to the resort is on W. Oregon Rd.
