Also see . . . Steamboat Rock State Park. A massive basalt butte, several miles long and 800 feet high, it looms like a battleship above Banks Lake, a manmade reservoir that fills the upper Grand Coulee in northeastern Washington. Steamboat Rock was once an island in a channel carved by the ancient Columbia River. A number of early explorers recognized the Grand Coulee as a former channel of the Columbia.
