Oakesdale is a very tightknit community, and everyone genuinely cares about each other and are there to help. The cost of living here is low, and while we don't have much to do, we are located within an hour from Spokane, Moscow, and Pullman, which all offer a multitude of options for food, stay, retail, and entertainment.
