About the Chamber
The Republic Chamber of Commerce exists to serve the local businesses and community of Ferry County, and to assist anyone who wants information about our region.
About Our Area
Ferry County is sparsely populated – just 7,000 human residents – but we are abundantly blessed with wildlife – including moose, turkeys, two species of deer, mountain goats, cougars- and yes, even wolves. Ferry County also boasts several fresh water lakes brimming with trout and surrounded by huckleberry bushes. If you want to see nature, Ferry County is a great place to start. Ferry County is abundant in beautiful scenery, clean lakes and streams, and wildlife – in fact, Republic has its’ own Mule Deer herd – that have taught themselves to use the crosswalks on our main street.
Republic, the county seat, is surrounded by National Forest lands and within short driving distance of numerous lakes and campgrounds. Hunting, fishing, bird watching, bicycling, hiking, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, boating, motorized recreational sports and fossil digging bring people to the area.
We invite you to visit us and enjoy our natural scenic beauty and homespun hospitality! Discover more area flavor by clicking below.
