Most of Washington’s state parks are pretty great. The parks are located in some of the most beautiful areas in Washington. If I were to rate the parks on a scale of 1-10, Lake Chelan would most definitely be a 10. You can get a campsite on a gorgeous lake, and park your boat on a nearby dock. What else can you ask for?
Okay, okay. Maybe it would have been nice to be closer to a bathroom (it was a 5 minute walk from my site), and my husband said that the men’s bathroom was gross. Also, it’s extremely popular, which means it’s very crowded. But man, Lake Chelan is really amazing, and those lakefront campsites are calling me to return.

Enjoying the lake at Don Morse Park in Chelen. It was 90 degrees and sunny. Does it get any better?
Lake Chelan State Park – reservations are highly recommended in the summer
