Chelan

The community of Chelan sits at the foot of 50-mile long Lake Chelan, and has become a family favorite year-round resort destination for many.

Visitors in the summer bask in the sun and appreciate the contrast and cool beauty of snow capped peaks. In the fall the fiery colors of autumn brighten the scene, and in winter new-fallen snow brings mountain goat and deer to the water’s edge. The same snow, melting in the spring brings cascading waterfalls, fresh blossoms, and brilliance back to the mountains.

Enjoy watersports, hit the slides at Slidewaters, visit one of the valley’s many beautiful  Wineries, stroll the great boutique shops of the Historic Downtown district, catch a movie at the century-old Ruby Theatre, or throw a strike at the Chelan Lanes Bowling Center.

Visit the Lake Chelan Chamber site for complete Lake Chelan information.
