Went for a chartered fishing trip. Met our limited in just ½ out slotted time! Great views, crystal clear water for all types of water sports. Quaint little town to visit

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.

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

Very pristine lake. You can see all the way to the bottom. Cold, but excellent on a 100-degree day. Stay at Campbell's resort.

Surprised how clear Lake Chelan was. It was like the waters in Hawaii or Caribbean where you see bright blue, turquoise and deep navy. See pics. Water was crisp in late June but great for teens to swim, paddle board, kayak and play all day....More

The area, town and everything about Chelan is amazing. The lake itself is cold most of the time and the beaches are mostly dirty rock but once your on the water or exploring the area you can understand why people love it. We stayed in...More
