Eastern Washington Expeditions is hosting a Full Size 4×4 Friendly Overland Trip around Banks Lake and then Douglas Creek on Monday May 23 2022 with overland camping that night. This event is free but there are a limited number of rig spots available. So it is on a first-sign up basis after Club Members.

We will be covering some ground exploring places around Banks Lake and return though Douglas Creek. We will camp along the way and may camp on the way back to I-90.

  • Soap Lake
  • Dry Falls Vista
  • Steamboat Rock State Park & around
  • Grand Coulee Dam
  • Crown Point Vista

(A Discover Pass is required.)

This a Free to attend event. You will need to bring your own rig, gear, and food. You will need money for fuel and maybe cash for campsites fees. A Discover Pass is required at some stops.

REQUIREMENTS: You must have a working Street licensed 4 wheel drive to do this trip. Please have a full tank of fuel, recovery gear, and cold weather gear. Bring plenty of water and things you need to be safe from the sun. Bring a sack type lunch since we may not stop very long at places along the way. (A Discover Pass is required.)
NOTE: By signing up you are expected to follow the rules of the land and Tread Lightly. The roads/Trails can get soft this time of year. Spinning your tires intentionally on wet surfaces causes damage and is illegal. These actions have caused closures.


FUEL: Please have a full tank of fuel to start with. We will refuel as needed along the way.

CAMPING: Bring what you would need to camp in the desert. It could be very hot in the day and cold at night. Bring small bill cash in case campsites have fees.

Some of this trip is new to us. Here are some photos from the last trip through Douglas Creek: https://cegpics.com/recreation/photos-ewe-around-the-columbia-river-overland-trip-douglas-creek/

Contact us if you would like to attend. Please do not just show up out of the blue. If you would like to attend please use the Contact Us page. Space is limited.

This is the planned route but could change if we find other things to do along the way.
