Twenty-Five Mile Creek State Park offers one of the top boat launch and moorage sites on spectacular Lake Chelan.
This small state park has a modern marina nearly halfway along the 50.5-mile lake. Use the park as your launch site to get on the water and set out for distant shores.
Discover Lake Chelan’s deep blue waters and its small shorefront communities before dropping anchor in a secluded turquoise cove or returning to the park, where a little store with a deck offers amenities and colorful sunsets.
Planning a getaway on terra firma? Bring your RV or pitch your tent in one of the many creek-side campsites that dot the forested park. Or book the park’s vacation home that sits in the hills just above the marina. Only a mile inland on a winding road, the vacation rental home is pure high desert, with a sprawling house and expansive lawn surrounded by golden hills and green conifers. Having experienced the warm furnishings, large patio, modern kitchen and cozy living room, you may not want to leave.
