Classic Family Getaway
Lake Chelan has been a classic family getaway for decades, where the 55 miles of fresh water promise plenty of space to have fun. The name is derived from the native word tsilaan, which means "deep water", referring to the fact that Lake Chelan is also the third deepest lake in the country, next to Crater Lake and Lake Tahoe.
Enjoy the warmth of the eastern Washington sun and cool off on the water with water-skiing, wakeboarding, jet skis, or just a relaxing boat tour or fishing trip. The city of Chelan is also a traditional resort town, filled with fun for the whole family and now burgeoning with small wineries determined to establish Lake Chelan as a reputable wine-growing region.
