After an eventful year full of fire and floods, Stehekin, Washington, looks forward to a summer at full operation. The community of Stehekin is located at the north end of the 50-mile Lake Chelan in Lake Chelan National Recreation Area and part of the North Cascades National Park Service Complex. All businesses will be open this summer, including the newly renovated NPS concession facilities, the Stehekin Landing Resort.
Access to Stehekin is by ferry, floatplane, or hiking in over one of the many mountain passes. The Lake Chelan Boat Company operates two boats in the summer, the Lady of the Lake II and the Lady Express. They each travel up the 50 mile long Lake Chelan and back daily. Chelan Airways flies their floatplane several times a day based on reservations.
Visitors can hike the area’s many trails, rent a bicycle, raft the Stehekin River, fish, horseback ride, kayak on Lake Chelan, attend a ranger program, or soak up the historic ambiance of the community. Knowledgeable park rangers can be found at the Golden West Visitor Center each day to help you plan your next activity.
