Morgan Lake, Grant County, Washington

Morgan Lake
All of the lake's shoreline is private so to access this lake is done through Halfmoon Lake only during high water via a small marshy area where the two lakes connect. Not sure it's worth the effort. Still Morgan Lake has fairly clear water and is beautiful during early summer when the flowers are blooming around its shores. Fishing: Rainbow & Cutthroat Trout. Directions: From Moses Lake take HWY 17 south toward Othello; turn right (west) on HWY 262/O'Sullivan Dam Road. After crossing the dam and short distance down the road passing MarDon Resort turn left/south onto H Road SE. Proceed down H Road SE to the intersection of this road with W. McManamon Road. Turn left/east onto W. McManamon Road. Follow this road down the hill, across Crab Creek, to almost S. Morgan Lake Road. Before you get to S Morgan Lake Road you will see a gravel road next to a creek, turn on this road and you will see a wide parking area. Rough trails lead to Halfmoon Lake. To see the lake off the road proceed pass this gravel road on W McManamon Rd., Turn north on S. Morgan Lake Road. Proceed about a mile down the road. On your right is Morgan Lake (no access at this location). Map: To view a map click on and type in Morgan Lake, Adams County, WA. or type in the GPS coordinates of 46.894215, -119.239099
