Lake Chelan, averaging only a mile wide and stretching out for 55 miles, is one of America’s deepest lakes and remains fairly remote. The Stehekin River, dropping nearly 6500 feet from its headwaters in the Cascades, provides nearly 70 percent of its clear, pristine water. The north end of the lake, unmarred with paved roads and huge crowds, is surrounded by wilderness area, national forestland and the Lake Chelan National Recreation Area.
