Very nice walk around the lake, great way to lower the blood pressure! Relaxing time for my wife and I. We are planning on retiring near Chelan so this is a great stop to remind ourselves, it's about the journey!

There is plenty to do and good restaurants. There is a casino toward Manson, and there are plenty of wineries to visit as well. Most motels have a pool also.

Continues to be the best summer place in Washington state. Whether old young with children or without this gem of a lake and region is our place to enjoy. Let’s preserve it for the future.

Very pretty and quite big. Loved the stehekin lodge. Quite far removed from society. Loved seeing the PCT hikers through town.

The mountains surrounding the lake and the fifty plus mile ride out into the wilderness are fantastic. The lake is long, deep, clean and surrounded by the Cascades. Take the boat ride ! It is worth it.
