First up, let’s talk about the lake itself. At 50.5 miles long and over 1,400 feet deep (3rd deepest in the USA), it’s no surprise that Lake Chelan is a mecca for all things water-related. Whether you’re into fishing, boating, or just lounging on the beach, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to soak up the sun and take in the scenery.
But Lake Chelan isn’t just a one-trick pony. In addition to its watery charms, the area is also known for its world-class wineries. From charming wineries in the backroads of Manson like Amos Rome and Tipsy Canyon, to tasting rooms in the heart of downtown like Rocky Pond and One Wines, the choices for delicious wine and great vibes are endless. With over 30 wineries dotting the surrounding hillsides, you can spend an entire day (or two, or three) sipping and savoring the best that Washington’s wine country has to offer.
Hiking and biking
And speaking of those hillsides, let’s not forget about the hiking and biking trails that wind their way through the surrounding mountains. From leisurely strolls to heart-pumping climbs, there’s a trail for every level of outdoor enthusiast. Just don’t forget your camera – you won’t want to miss the breathtaking views.
Of course, no visit to Lake Chelan would be complete without indulging in some of the area’s famous fresh produce. Whether you’re attending one of our local farmer’s markets or stopping to pick your own produce and flowers, you’ll be able to taste and enjoy the bounty of the region’s fertile farmland.
All in all, there’s a reason why Lake Chelan is one of the Pacific Northwest’s best-kept secrets. With its unbeatable combination of outdoor adventure, wine, and good eats, it’s the perfect destination for anyone looking to get away from it all – without sacrificing any of the fun.
