Lake Chelan

Experience mountain views, hiking trails, clear waters, wellness spas and vineyards at this scenic lake and year-round vacation destination in Central Washington.

Lake Chelan is a beautiful waterway in central Washington and is the largest lake in the state. The narrow and winding lake features clear waters and picturesque vineyards on its banks. It’s surrounded by stunning forested and snow-capped mountains. Explore this magnificent natural destination by boat, bike or on foot and enjoy the region’s fine wines and family-friendly activities.

Lake Chelan is ideal for water sports and leisure boating. Take in the spectacular mountain vistas from the water on your own craft or a rented boat, Jet Ski, canoe or paddleboard. Discover the abundant underwater life with your snorkel or scuba gear. Take advantage of Lake Chelan’s sheltered beaches and go swimming in the cool waters. If you’re up for the challenge, take part in the Polar Bear Splash swim during the Lake Chelan Winterfest in January.

Explore over 250 miles (402.3 kilometers) of well-kept summer trails in the surrounding mountains. Discover the Glacier Peak and Lake Chelan-Sawtooth Wilderness Areas, Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, Beebe Springs and Agnes Creek. For mountain bikers, there are thrilling downhill trails that crisscross the Lake Chelan landscape. Visit Lake Chelan in winter to traverse stunning cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails.

For a more relaxed Lake Chelan experience, try fishing off one of the many piers on the lake while looking out at the dramatic mountain views. Golf courses, rejuvenating spas and horseback tours can also be found in Lake Chelan. Families will love the Slidewaters waterpark, go-kart tracks, bowling alley and games arcade.

Discover Lake Chelan’s agricultural fields and eat fresh produce from the region. Apples, cherries and grapevines all grow in abundance here. Join a wine tour and enjoy a fine drop grown on the banks of the lake.

Lake Chelan is located in Washington. Cities on the lake include Chelan and Manson on its south end. Passenger ferries connect Chelan to Stehekin Valley and North Cascades National Park to the north. Enjoy long, sunny summers at Lake Chelan or visit in the middle of winter for adventures in the snow.
