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, with areas for camping, swimming and horseback riding and North Park, in a less developed, forested section, 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. More than five miles of equestrian trails are in and around the park. A concession offers horses for rent for day rides or overnight pack trips. There are no public stables available. Year-round recreation opportunities abound, including swimming, boating and hiking in the summer and cross-country skiing, snowplaying, showshoeing and sledding in the winter.
History of the Area
During their annual migration long ago, Native American tribes stopped at Lake Wenatchee for a feast of clams and salmon before heading west to trade with coastal tribes. Nason Creek, called Umptanum Creek by Native Americans, is adjacent to the park. This was the location where Nason bragged that he and another Native American had killed two white men. This event was one of the noted causes of the Yakima Indian War.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 17 Pleasantly surprised
My wife and I tent-camped here midweek in August. This is a very nice, well-kept campground with clean restroom facilities, pay showers, ample water spigots and a great beach on beautiful Lake Wenatchee. We were surprised by the lack of flies and mosquitos. The constant wind may be the reason. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. The only downside for me is the lack of privacy as many of the sites are fairly close to each other.
August 8 Camping by kragsac
Reserving camping dates? You have to reserve early, these spots as the primo spots, are taken early. Reservations are a must. The campgrounds are our favorites, we did them until the kids got bigger, now we have grandkids, and will be going back in a few years!
November 27 Snow, snow, snow by Jason S
