Name Moses Lake
Details Moses Lake, WA is a city on east shore of Moses Lake in east central Grant County. The town is thriving due to local prosperity based on many thousands of acres of irrigated land. It was named for the lake, which was named for Chief Moses, a warrior and diplomat. His tribe used the shores of the lake as campgrounds for many generations. An earlier name was Neppel.

Moses Lake is an irregular body of water, with many channels directly north of Potholes Reservoir in southeast Grant County. It is shallow, with a maximum depth of 30 ft., average width between a quarter and a half mile. A former name was Salt Lake.
