The Trailer Loop (Sites 1-35) lacks privacy, but is near the beach. The sites on the lake side are grassy, but are in full sun. Other RV sites are extremely small and back into desert vegetation.
The Beach Loop (Sites 36-71) has average privacy and good access to the beach area. Sites on the lake side have great views and severely sloped. While this might ordinarily be a deal breaker, the design of the sloped campsites gives them an architectural appeal. They are all walk-in sites, so vehicles must be parked on the road above.
The West Loop (sites 72-144) is the largest, shadiest, and most popular. A small number of sites line the small creek, while the others are less private.
The Beach Area
The resort at Stehekin, at the north end of Lake Chelan, is considered the most isolated resort in the country. It can be accessed by ferry (from 25-Mile Creek, north of L.Chelan S.P.), the boat Lady of the Lake (from the town of Chelan, at the south end of the Lake), by plane, or by a one-lane gravel road connecting to NCNP, which is open only a few weeks in summer and passable only by 4-wheel drive vehicles.
