AAA Editor Notes
Lake Chelan fills a glacier-carved trough on the eastern flank of the Cascade Range. One of the most scenic spots in the Pacific Northwest, the 55-mile-long lake extends from the semi-arid benchlands near the Columbia River northwestward into the alpine heart of the North Cascades. At nearly 1,500 feet deep, the lake is one of the continent's deepest; the surface is some 1,100 feet above sea level, while portions of the bottom lie 400 feet below sea level.

Snowcapped peaks, some towering more than 8,000 feet, flank the upper reaches. Roads follow both banks of the lower reaches. This clear blue lake is fed by a number of streams, some fed by glaciers clinging to the mountains.

Two state parks are on the south shore. Lake Chelan State Park is 9 miles west off US 97 Alt. and SR 971. Nine miles farther up S. Lakeshore Drive is Twenty-five Mile Creek State Park.
