Hi my name is Ana and i am looking to homestead in Okanogan County, Washington...I think. My husband and I have been looking into this for over a decade but I cant seem to find ANYTHING on land locations in northern Washington state. Can ANYONE please help me find land that is available for homesteading? We have a family of 7 and are trying to find maybe a lot for my husband and I and maybe a lot for the kids. To my understanding each family member over 18, as long as they reside for 5 years and build a home with in a year with a max of 160(?) acres per member, I also saw something that said 40 acres for married and 60 acres per member, WA State will sign over deed, but I am in desperate need of some assistance finding the areas. And obviously in need of some of clarification.
I found this link and am praying that someone can guide me in the right direction. Thanks so much!
