Lake Wenatchee State Park is a 489-acre (198 ha) Washington state park with 12,623 feet (3,847 m) of waterfront on Lake Wenatchee and the Wenatchee River. It is split into two parts, the North Shore and South Shore state parks, separated by the Wenatchee River. Lake Wenatchee is a glacier- and snowmelt-fed lake situated in the Wenatchee National Forest on the eastern slopes of the Cascades Mountain Range. The lake covers 2,480 acres (1,000 ha) and reaches a depth of 244 feet (74 m). Lake Wenatchee is the source of the Wenatchee River. The main tributaries include the White River and the Little Wenatchee River.

Activities and amenities

The park offers camping and a variety of fresh water activities, including fishing, water skiing, white-water kayaking, windsurfing, swimming, and facilities to launch motorboats and personal water craft. The park has trails for hikers, bikers, and equestrians as well as areas for rock climbing. In the winter months, the park is used for cross-country skiing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, and ice climbing.[2] Lake Wenatchee State Airport, an unimproved grass and dirt landing strip, is located nearby.
