  • Amazing weekend getaway destination. Stayed for a night in Pateros. The scenery was breathtaking. Lots of water activities to keep yourself busy. The temperature of the water around Sept first week was perfect. The weather was just right. As you drive towards Chelan, you can see the change in terrain from green mountains to more brown ones.
  • Wish there was more privacy but the park was extremely clean, they have showers, the beach was EXTREMELY AMAZING and sparkly clean. The man that checked us in was sooooooo friendly and helpful. There are crickets at night that make you feel like you're in a dream. The stars are beautiful we'd def come back.
