It’s lake season - why not try Chelan?

In late spring, Chelan wakes up for a torrid summer. 

For RVers, Lake Chelan offers three distinctly different options. You can stay in town at the city-run Lakeshore RV Park or two first-rate state parks on the south shore.

Chelan State Park is about 10 miles from Chelan's town center and a family favorite. And drive to the end of the south shore to stay at Twenty-Five Mile Creek State Park, which has a large marina perfectly situated for trips deep into the gorgeous undeveloped wilderness section of the lake.

All options have their advantages. To read more about RV camping at Lake Chelan, check out our Friday column in The Spokesman-Review.
