  • Fresh air, sunny warm days and cool nights. Friendly people, clean and green parks, great shops, and a beautiful view of the wine vineyards and apple orchards can be enjoyed from most anywhere you stand outdoors. Only flaw is not enough public access to the beautiful lake.
  • The most beautiful lake. It's gorgeous. Enjoyed, went for the day! It's a long drive from Seattle. I would recommend staying over night; which I will do for sure in future!
  • This lake is awesome, it is so big and there are so many things to do. I recommend camping at one of the many boat in only campsites. But if you are boating watch out for the drift wood there's a lot of it floating around the lake.
  • The cleanest lake I’ve ever been in. Such refreshing water, and beautiful surroundings. Very gravelly ground, so consider bringing water shoes, but such a fun and awesome family destination.
  • Beautiful, crystal clear lake! Cute downtown with lots of shops and restaurants. Lake Chelan is easily one of the most beautiful places in Washington state.
