The Lake Chelan Valley sits centrally in Washington State nestled in
the North Cascades National Forest encompassing the communities of
Chelan, Manson, & Stehekin. This pristine, 50.5 mile glacier fed
lake%EF%BF%BDs widest width is one and a half miles, and the deepest depth is
1541 ft. The population of the valley consists of 10,000 year round
residents and several hundred more part-time residents.
Roads extend less than halfway to the headwaters of Lake Chelan.
Beyond the end of the road, rugged snowcapped peaks rise over 7,000
feet from the lakeshore and dark evergreens cover the mountainsides.
Deep valleys rise from the lake to massive glaciers in the heart of
the North Cascades. At the upper end of Lake Chelan, limited, local
roads do not connect the communities of Stehekin and Holden Village
to the outside world.
The remoteness and the spectacular setting have inspired Federal
protection for much of the region. Portions of a National Park, two
National Forest Wilderness Areas, and a National Recreation Area
encompass much of the Chelan drainage. From the apple orchards down
lake to the alpine firs and glaciers of the Cascade Crest, the Lake
Chelan area offers an unparalleled variety of scenic and recreational
experiences. Enjoy discovering for yourself the rich history and
special features of this unique region
