The city gets its name from the lake it surrounds, Moses Lake, one of the state’s largest freshwater lakes. The lake provides several months of swimming, boating, bird watching and other outdoor recreational opportunities for residents and tourists. The city of Moses Lake is located in Grant County, which has a total population of 88,800. The population of Moses Lake is 18,800.
