It is known as Washington State's top resort destination. Wapato Point is an unusual location as the only peninsula and jutting out into 50 mile long Lake Chelan. As one of the deepest lakes in North America, the lake offers crystal clear pure water as its central attraction. Around the lake are rolling hills, farms and valleys and soaring peaks.
Developed in the 1980's, Wapato Point has a mature and settled feeling for the thousands of guests who visit during the year. It has one of a kind amenities including a mile of white sand beach, boating docks, swim areas and water ski platforms. The 200 condominiums and 70 private vacation homes share indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, Tennis and Volleyball Courts. Basketball, miniature golf, boat and water craft rentals.
But mostly families come to Wapato Point to enjoy the 300 days of sunshine per year. Hot and toasty in summer, bright and snowy in winter and with spring and autumn seasons that last long and provide great opportunities for gold and outdoor activities.
The town of Chelan and Manson Village offer restaurants, shops and activities from boating to bowling. There is water slide, water skiing and hot summers with sun bathing and swimming.
