We camped here over Labor Day Weekend. Our site was one in a row of three tent sites on the opposite side of the road from the river. Our site did not have a truly level tent pad. The tent pad was just barely big enough to fit our ridiculously large tent. On the plus side, it was mostly surrounded by brush & trees, providing a lot of visual privacy. The sites have a few trees that are appropriate for a hammock; the one I used is between site 37 and the one next to it, down lake.

This campground has a swimming area, boat launch, and a playground. The bathrooms are so-so. The RV area feels like a small city compared to the tent area down lake from it.

There's a restaurant across the street, but it's not open for breakfast. We had a third vehicle at our site, and I was advised the overflow parking was at the gas station five miles down the road. I thought the ranger was kidding -- I was wrong. This may have been only because of the holiday weekend -- both the day use & the campground was full on Sunday.

There's plenty to do in the area. We fished at the campground and down lake. There's a hiking trail in the campground; I'm not sure how long it is, but it appears to be designed for families/children. If you go into town for breakfast, have the cottage cheese pancakes at the Apple Cup Café.

Lake Chelan State Park, Chelan County, Washington. Most of us have been to Lake Chelan. If you haven't, I strongly encourage adding it to your Bucket List. There are new developments: on the east side of the Park, which were once steep hillsides dropping down to the Lake, have been build some brilliant terraced campsites with stairways that lead to a nice lakeside path. Each site has 2 or 3 landings -- one for a tent, one for a picnic table, and one for opening up your lawn chairs and taking it all in. There is also bad news afoot: the newer RV sites are in full blazing sun and hopelessly small. But stay tuned: in one week I have a solution for RVers. For more info, click on
