It was very dry/sagebrush around the southern end of the lake and more forest as you go north. Lots of fruit orchards!

Crystal clear lake and super cold. Plenty to do around the lake such as visiting wineries, eating at the many many restaurants and simply walking among the historic downtown shops. enjoy

The lake has many water sports to enjoy. Water temperature is perfect. The lake is so clear and safe for kids to swim as well. The recreational park is huge and its a great picnic spot to grill, play and relax.

The beauty of Chelan is the color of the lake. You can see clear to the bottom; at least 30 feet. It's a glacial fed lake, the source of its color. August is best month, warms up considerably. So refreshing.

We stayed at Wapito Point at Lake Chelan in Washington. Excellent place for families or just Adults. We enjoyed watercraft activities as well as the pools and beaches. Excellent place to take kids as they have kids activities at the kiosk and you can rent...More

I spent many summers at Lake Chelan as a child and as a teenager. There are many parks, great fishing, boating, wineries, I love this place! If you plan on camping, reserve early. Bring sunscreen, it is HOT, but the water is COLD.

We enjoy a week here every summer. The lake is beautiful and not too cold. Fun boating when the wind isn't blowing. So much good wine, hot weather and lots of kid friendly activities
