Lake Wenatchee State Park is a 489-acre camping park with 12,623 feet of waterfront on glacier-fed Lake Wenatchee and the Wenatchee River. The park is bisected by the Wenatchee River, creating two distinct areas -- South Park, with areas for camping, swimming and horseback riding; and North Park, in a less developed, forested section, a quarter-mile walk from the lake. The park is a natural wildlife area, and visitors should be aware of the presence of bears and other natural dangers.
This was a fantastic hike for our family. The trail head is located just off Lake Wenatchee and requires an off-road drive. I was surprised by how many people were hiking the trail given how tricky it was to find. The hike is short and easy but the payoff is fantastic.
10 mile round trip hike from the Round Mountain trailhead, with 2400 feet elevation gain. Trail is in good condition with some areas of erosion from spring snow melt runoffs. Awesome views of nearby Cascade peaks, including Glacier Peak and Mount Rainier. We saw a few mountain goats at the lookout. Highly recommended.
