This beautiful lake is a mecca for WA sailor and non-sailors. It is usually quite hot in the summer, so the cold waters of this deep lake beckon. With sandy beaches all around, it can be a Hobie Catters paradise. The town of Chelan is a great resort town with plenty to offer in shopping, wine tasting, or just sun tanning. It lies at the south end of the lake, which runs northwest-southeast. Camping and RV camping is available at various campgrounds in the area.
The wind on Lake Chelan is either on or off usually. You can expect a light 5k breeze, or a full-on 20k breeze. It can be challenging as the predominant wind is westerly. Coming over the mountains, the wind gets funneled down the thin lake.
