Beautiful area. There are so many activities to do. Great hiking trails, swimming, boating, kayaking, ATV trails and enjoying the beauty. This campground is almost always full. If you plan on taking a trip there, make sure you make reservations.

Excellent for boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, and remote camping ! The water is warmer than Lake Chelan; plenty of shallow sandbars to lounge on.

We journeyed up to Priest Lake in early June, it's cooler but beautiful. A must see, not a lot is open but enough. Peaceful, hiking, and fishing.

We love to camp at Indian Creek during the quiet fall season. During the peak season, it's almost impossible to reserve a space without reservations 6 months in advance. Many of the RV spots near the lake are extremely tight, even for our 14' travel...More

Last year in May weather was perfect for camping and hiking. The lake was too cold to swim. Watch weather to see what conditions will be when you want to visit.
