I have been traveled to 35 countries and 100th cities and never had so unhappy with terrible service and dirty place,rude customer service or better say no service at all. No recommended!

Stopped by on our way to Grand Coulee Dam. Interesting history regarding why the lake has a soapy feel and the mineral content of the mud.

don't expect razzle dazzle or a built up tourist destination, but do love the beauty and uniqueness of the place. Is the beach less beautiful than a white sand beach of hawaii, yes. Does the sand/thin mud bottom of the lake smell like sulfur if you scoop it up, yes. If those kind of things put you off, then maybe... More

One of a kind place. The views are completely amazing and unlike anything I've seen in all my travels. Dry falls dropping off into Soap Lake. Excellent driving tour. We saw a mule deer. Gorgeous scenery.

We were planning on staying in Soap Lake and checking out what they say about the lake. No go. You have to walk through some very smelly mud to get into the water. We watched other folks and they just walk out and sit in the water, when they stand up they are covered in black mud. I didn't see... More

Historically significant for reduction of Burger's disease and topical mud applications for many kinds of ailments, Soap Lake is a marvel - both from a water perspective (great mineral content and healing perspective) as well as fun for the whole family. Great motels and hotels bringing back the best in a quiet environment, good eats, good beaches, hiking trails, water... More

Very relaxing place to enjoy sun, lake, and friendly locals. There are so many trails to hike beyond the lake, with views that go on forever!

I love this lake. The water is clean, the healing mud is there for you to cover your body in if you want to, the surroundings are pretty and it's peaceful and relaxing. That is until motorized boat racing was allowed into the waters. How disappointing! This lake is a gem in the middle of nowhere. I've traveled hours to... More

We went mid day, was ok at best. No bathroom facilities available (the building was there--door was locked) so better change in the car or have a tent. Seemed to lack something.. was not the cleanest place, had a peculiar odor in one spot, not sure what was buried there but it was no bueno.
