Ring Lake, Spokane County, Washington

Ring Lake (12 acres)
This lake is an interesting looking lake with an island in the middle of it. It is in the open as compared to many of the other larger lakes in the area, and even though it’s a shallow lake it stays full of water all summer and would be a good kayak lake. There are several ponds that surround the lake. Directions: Take the WA-902 W exit- EXIT 272- toward MEDICAL LAKE., Turn RIGHT onto WA-902 / W MEDICAL LAKE RD.
