The Pacific Northwest seems to have ignored the smooth spring season transition completely. We’ve gone directly from cold winter to sunny summer days, and you’re probably cruising for some things to do in Lake Chelan for your upcoming visit. Here’s what’s on our radar this season.
Here are our picks for the things to do in Lake Chelan this summer:
Hike the trails of Chelan
The Washington Trails Association provides a great free resource for individuals, groups, or families interested in hiking through our state. For beginners, we would recommend the Little Bear Trail of the Lake Chelan State Park; more advanced hikers should check out the Chelan Butte. (And yes indeed, it’s a beaut’.)
Listen to live music in the park all summer long
Every Thursday at Chelan Riverwalk Park, catch various local artists playing for a couple hours. Totally family-friendly and a totally chill way to rest after a long day of hiking or other outdoor activities in the Chelan area.
Golf with a view at Lake Chelan
The City of Chelan’s own municipal course offers you the Chelan Butte. Check out other golf courses within driving distance of Lakeside Lodge and Suites.
Go jump in the lake
Seriously! We promise the water’s finally warm enough.
…Or our outdoor pool!
We opened out outdoor pool for the 2018 season just this past week — the last week of April — and while it can still get a little chilly in the evening, the sun’s out to play during the rest of the day! There are plenty of things to do in Lake Chelan — but we can understand the need to just sit back and hang out at the resort hotel for a little while. Throw on your sunglasses and flip flops, grab a book, and take the kids to the pool.
