the spring time the water level of the lake drops over ten feet, allowing beach combers and those with metal detectors a great opportunity to locate lost “treasures.”

- Lakeside Park on the way into Chelan. It is a day use park
- Beebe Bridge Park across the bridge from Chelan Falls (along the Columbia River)

Play at an Arcade

When was the last time you and your family or friends threw a bowling ball down the lane? Chelan Lanes offers bowling for everyone! Enjoy bumpers for the children to keep the ball out of the gutter, plus video games and pool tables. The Jukebox creates an interactive music experience, and flat screen TV’s are located throughout the Lanes and Mr. J’s. Open 1pm to 10pm daily. Thunder Alley creates a fun family evening for all ages two to three nights a week. Mr. J’s Lane Eleven offers beverages from soda to beer and wine, plus a menu of selections from salads to your favorite pizza.
The beauty of Lake Chelan stems from the pristine scenery, and there’s no better way to take it all in than a hike around the area. Our typically early spring thaw means it’s time to head for the hills above the valley. Get out on family-friendly trails in the Echo Ridge trail system, with 25 miles of routes.
