Central Washington State, U.S.A.

Central Washington is a region of the United States defined as the western half of Eastern Washington, or those counties lying east of the Cascade Mountains but west of the 119th meridian west.

The estimated population as of 2004 was 672,065 or about 10% of Washington's total population.

Central Washington is also further divided into North Central and South Central. Washington State Department of Transportation uses these groupings as part of their district office divisions.

  • North Central Washington, or NCW, is defined by the Washington State Department of Transportation as including the counties of Chelan, Douglas, Grant, and Okanogan Counties[1]. This designation is mirrored by use of the NCW region by local media. Wenatchee is the largest city in this region.
  • South Central Washington includes Benton, Kititias, Klickitat, and Yakima Counties, in addition to all counties south of the Snake River, in the Department of Transportation use of the term[2]. Yakima and the Tri-Cities are the largest metro areas of this region.
