The Lake Wenatchee State Park with an area of 489 acres is located at the eastern end of the glacial lake Wenatchee. The Wenatchee River again separates the park in North Shore Park and South Shore Park. The 12623 feet lake surmounted by mountains is perfect for boating, windsurfing, kayaking, stand-up paddling, waterskiing, and kiteboarding while the shallow blue lagoon offers activities like fishing and swimming. In winter, there is ample opportunity for cross-country skiing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, and ice climbing. The hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails will offer you the thrill of 3950 feet of elevation gain and stunning natural vista. Apart from all these you can enjoy camping, beach hopping, bird watching, wildlife viewing, golfing, and much more.

Lake Wenatchee State Park Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful Lake and campground. Great amenities and convenient shop store for ice, ice cream, food and forgotten supplies. They have kayak rentals when the wind isn't blowing on the lake. When the wind was blowing there where people wind surfing on the lake. The wind at night makes it sound like you are on the ocean. The beach is breathtaking and there is Emerald Island nearby that is easy to kayak to. Right next to the lake is the start of the Wenatchee River. Awesome place for kids and adults. Watch out for the Chipmunks they like to eat and beware of the mosquitoes when the wind isn't blowing.
Very nice campground. Really quiet and the people around us were very friendly. The South park has a camp store, water access, kayak rentals and more. Plus you're only 20 minutes or so from Leavenworth. Plenty of things to do while camping here. Lots of curious chipmunks around.
It's absolutely beautiful. The lake itself is nearly pristine (it IS developed for recreational use, after all). The campsites are clean and meticulously kept, the surroundings grand and awesome, and even the man-made artifacts do not detract from the overwhelming glory of this place. It's quite family-friendly with little danger for little ones, at least as little as can be in a mostly natural setting. Not for the avid outdoorsman perhaps, but for a great many of us who just want to unplug for a few hours and simply breathe, a jewel in the Washington crown; and for those who might crave a bit more, Leavenworth is less than an hour distant by car. Sadly, cell phones do work here. That's why they have an 'off' switch!
We always have a good time. Site 109 has very fine Brown dirt. Your feet will look like you've tanned them.
One of the nicest state parks near Leavenworth. The water is calm and perfect for kayaking and paddle boarding. You also get amazing sunset views from the south beach.
