Lake Wenatchee Winter Offerings
Get out, Stay close
Are you looking to get out safely, and yet stay relatively close to home? Lake Wenatchee offers the perfect solution for winter recreation. It’s just a short drive away, and yet it offers everything from cross country skiing to snowshoeing to sledding to winter camping (with hot showers!). It’s the perfect winter playground for those of us in Central Washington.
Two parts, one park
The scenic, gentle-flowing Wenatchee River cuts the park into two sections, aptly named North Park and South Park. The northern half of the park is more RV-friendly, particularly to those traveling in big rigs, and offers partial hookups. The southern half is ideal for primitive tent camping, and while it lacks full hookup options, it does offer some unique amenities for avid adventurers.
In the winter, camping is restricted to a designated spot in the day-use area. Additionally, no amenities, including hookups, are offered during the winter. However it is perfect for a day trip, or those brave enough to try winter camping.
There are many activities possible in the winter at Lake Wenatchee. The over 500 acre park boasts cross-country skiing, sledding and snowshoe hiking opportunities, dogsledding, snowmobiling, camping, and year-round fishing. With an average snowfall of around 150 inches, this truly is a winter wonderland. There is even a cross-country trail that is meant to be traveled by your four-legged friends as well! Watch below to see the beauty that is waiting to be explored!
