Beautiful Lake

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!

The beautiful sand beach at Campbell's Resort Is perfect for young familys. The later summer months bring warm water temperature.

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.

Hotel and vacation homes for rent available. Come in tens and split the cost. Not a budget place for sleep. Renting boats is affordable and worth it. You can drag people on the water and also swim, but the water is usually freezing, especially in the morning, and on the edges of the lake. If it is hot and sunny... More

Lake Chelan is gorgeous year round. The summers are what you dream of, dry sunny days and cool enough at night to sit outside in shorts until late and sleep with windows wide open for the breeze. Winters are a snowy wonderland with fabulous cross country sliding, innertubing, snow shoeing, and even a little downhill ski resort for kids to... More

This lake is best appreciated on a boat (or a jet ski). We rent a boat and/or jet ski each time we go and it is amazing. Seriously one of the cleanest/clearest lakes ever. The nearby facilities are nice, as well, for picnics and BBQs.

Great family or couples vacation getaway! A huge freshwater lake with 28 wineries around it is heavenly. Lots of fun activities daily for all ages. Clean air, water, and no allergy problems. If you like to bike ride, waterski, paddle board, golf, BBQ, etc. then this is the place for you! We went the last week of June thru 4th... More
