Lake Chelan is a narrow, 50.5 miles (81.3 km) long lake in Chelan County, north-central Washington state, U.S. It is the largest natural lake in the state by any measure. Upon the completion of Lake Chelan Dam in 1927, the elevation of the lake was increased by 21 feet (6.4 m) to its present maximum-capacity elevation of 1,100 feet (340 m). Two communities lie on the southern end of the lake, and a third sits at the far north end, providing a gateway to the North Cascades National Park.

Popular summer spot for camping, wine tasting, hanging out at the lake and just enjoy the quiet and beautiful scenery. Booking in advance is always recommended as it is a very popular destination.

I'm enjoying my vacation here and doing wine tasting, playing at the local casino and taking a lake tour so far. Very enjoyable at Lake Chelan Shores 🌞

Take the time to revel in natures beauty. Lake Chelan, and Stehekin, are truly wonders to fill your experience bucket.
