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, snow playing, showshoeing, and sledding in the winter.
