Ski, fish or just sit there and enjoy the calm water. Clean lake with plenty of space to stretch out and have fun without bumping into someone. Find and schedule a camp site well in advance, and show up early (like a day early) to ensure you vacation is good.

Lake Chelan is one of the clearest and deepest freshwater lakes in the United States. While the lake is generally narrow, The lake is over 100 miles long. Lady of the Lake cruises are available for one hour to a full day.

Great for a quiet family holiday, yet there is plenty to do - swimming, kayaking, boating, fishing, hiking.

Visited Lake Chelan for the first time. An excellent place to sit on the waterfront and watch the world go by. The wineries are close and definitely worth visiting.

Lake Chelan is a great place for a family vacation! We have been going there and staying at Campbell's Resort and Peterson's Waterfront for more than 20 years. While there, the Lakeview Drive-in is a great place to eat, as well as Campbell's restaurant. There is a water park, bumper boats, small race cars, and miniature golf! Many wineries and... More

We love going to Lake Chelan. It's just 3 hours away and it's a great way to get away and enjoy lake living. We love wine tasting, jet skiing and camping.

Great little town with wonderful scenery! Went late May and it was very quiet but you could feel the energy building for the summer season.
