Soap Lake Legend
Soap Lake contains 17 minerals and an Ichthyol like oil. The only comparable water in the world is Boden Lake in Boden, Germany.
Cowboys and settlers learned of the health-like qualities of the buoyant water from the indians, who for ages past sent their ailing to bathe in the great spirits “Smokiam” or “Healing Waters”
This was a favorite campsite for Chief Joseph and his people. White men named it Soap Lake because of the soapy feel of the water and the “Suds” that formed along the shore.
This is indeed a God-given body of water for the ills of mankind.
