Great place to Rent a boat or a jet ski as well as Parasail. They also have gas right there so it was easy to refuel the boat. The Pontoon Boat was amazing and was actually powerful enough to tube our kids! Not to mention its the nicest looking pontoon boat on the lake and easy to drive. Thank you... More

What a beautiful lake surrounded by majestic mountains their caps covered in snow this time of year. This lake is 50 some miles long. Great boating and fishing.

We love Lake Chelan. It is our family vacation spot multiple times in the year. Mother's Day is our next family get together here. We just had 2 family weekends together in April.

Today we rented a boat for Oregon's Spring break. The weather has cooperated so I was surprised that we were only one boat out out of maybe 5 others on the lake today. We were unlucky at catching fish but we had a fantastic time! I highly recommend this area for family fun!

This lake is the epitome of gorgeous. Clean and fresh. Worth a trip & a dip! There is great spots to grab a picnic and just enjoy a great Washington day on the shore.

We stayed at Campbell's Resort. We were part of a group that had a wine pairing dinner at Tsillan Cellars. The food and wines were awesome. We went to several wineries in a limo the following day. The views were to die for, and the wines were excellent. This was our first trip to Lake Chelan and we will go... More

We spent a week at Lake Chelan last year. It was a wonderful trip and we never ran out of activities. The local people and fruit growers were an inspiration. We even arrived at the perfect time (early spring) to pick blueberries, which was awesome.

Lived in Chelan my whole life, the lake is amazing, clean, big enough for everyone and there is so much to do and see. It's the perfect vacation spot or the perfect place to move to!

One of the most pristine lakes in the state... Large and deep... Awesome water... Let's hope the local homeowners along the shore keep it that way forever

My first time at Lake Chelan was during a festival and there was a live band. I believe it was the art festival of sorts. Vendors had various booths set up and naturally; I was a sucker for the funnel cake and good coffee. What really got me was the gorgeous setting of Lake Chelan and everything that's around it....
