Lake Chelan State Park is a camping park on the forested south shore of Lake Chelan. The park has 6,000 feet of shoreline, lakeside views and expansive lawns for strolling and playing. A coniferous forest and lake provide respite from summer heat in this Eastern Washington park. A large, sandy beach and boating opportunities are popular attractions.
