Summer Camping at Lake Wenatchee

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, which features areas for camping, swimming and horseback riding, and north park, which is in a less developed, forested section of the park and a quarter-mile walk from the lake.

  •              Set a date a month ahead because when we made our reservation 2 weeks before our camp date, there’s only 2 campsite left. Campsite 56 and 50. Campsite 50 doesn’t have a photo on their website and campsite 56 is shown below. Please refer to the other photos here.

Summer in Staircase, Port Angeles


Visiting Staircase

Enormous trunks reach for the sky, lacy limbs stretch to the sun, grooved bark is sanctuary to tiny creatures in the vast cathedral of Douglas-firs that dominate the forests on this side of the Olympic Peninsula.

Staircase is located in the southeastern corner of Olympic National Park, about a one-hour drive from Olympia, and two hours south of Port Angeles

Drive: Took us 2 hrs and 30 minute from Seattle

We only spend a day here but it’s worth the drive. We weren’t prepared so didn’t get a chance to go fishing but the place is enough to get a relaxing vibe.

Pros: Not crowded so for sure you can have a serene day here and looks like a very cool campground too.

Great for fishing too

Only slight cons is we have to pay around $25 entrance

Below are some of the photos I took. I was amazed of the elk tree (call it the carpet tree lol!)
