Camped 2days in city park along the lake. Campground was crowded but considering the many activities the area offers really no suprise. Amy, the park employee assisted us to secure a 2nd night; very grateful for her help. Took Lady of the Lake to Stehekin. One-day round trip with only 3 hours in Stehekin. Area demands longer stay/return trip.

The deep notch Chelan Lake is one of the most beautiful waterbody in state of Washington. The depth of the lake is measured to be 1000 feet below sea level. Enveloped with cascade peaks around, the blue water... More

Beautiful crystal clear lake. Glacier fed so can be a bit cold but not too cold when it has been as hot as it has this summer. Great for swimming, boating, skiing and fishing.

Beautiful lake, lots to do. The kids really liked having the skate park and the basketball court just steps away from the beach. Only downside is that it's quite busy!

One of my favorite places in the USA, Lake Chelan in the summer can't be beat! Weather, outdoor recreation, boating, and a nice town!

We had a wonderful time at Lake Chelan. There are so many different things to do on the water. We just wish we had more time. We also really enjoyed the electric bike tour. We will definitely be back!

Very nice lake, nice little town of Chelan too. Very very packed with tourists and the lake gets extremely busy with boats, jetskis, etc. Fun for a family vacation. The lake was warm enough to go in, plus the resort we stayed at had a pool. Fun things to do in the town too. We really enjoyed our visit.
