Lake Wenatchee State Park is a 489-acre camping park with 12,623 feet of waterfront on Glacier-fed Lake Wenatchee and the Wenatchee River. The park is bisected by the Wenatchee River, creating two distinct areas – south park, which features areas for camping, swimming and horseback riding, and north park, which is in a less developed, forested section of the park and a quarter-mile walk from the lake. The park is a natural wildlife area, and visitors should be aware of the presence of bears and other natural dangers.
A concessionaire offers guided horse rides on more than five miles of trail in and around the forested park. Year-round recreation opportunities abound, including swimming, boating and hiking in the summer and cross-country skiing, snowplaying, showshoeing and sledding in the winter.The area receives an average of 150 inches of snow during the winter months and offers groomed sledding hills and more than 25 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails, as well as marked showshoe trails and winter camping.
