This park, refurbished after a recent fire, is a great place to stay. The area is scenic and quiet. The lake provides a place to swim or fish. The facilities are in decent shape. - Dan C

We were camp hosts for this park. Three years ago the park was caught in the Carlton Complex fire, the largest in Washington's history (over 250,000 acres burned) and was nearly destroyed. Hundreds of ponderosa pine and shade trees were reduced to ashes. Since then, the park has been in recovery. New trees have been planted and the native sumac has returned. You can obviously still see the devastation but it now lends the park a very rustic atmosphere enhanced by the predominately tent camping site arrangements. With a few exceptions sites are gravel and mostly dry camp with nearby water. There are water/power sites as well and depending on location a choice of 50 or 30 amp. Very few FHU but there is a dump station. The main attraction is the namesake - Alta Lake with trout, kokonee salmon, and bass. There is a large marked swim area and a concessionaire stand for food, ice, and firewood. Personally, I feel the state mandated pricing is high as the park is still recovering from being wiped out. - DennisK

The rating reflects value for money. At 30$ for a dry site we feel this place to be way overpriced. We stayed after Labor Day, so one loop was already closed. Like one of the previous reviewers experienced, we got confused by the signage and drove past the camping loops into a residential area. Luckily we only have a Truck Camper. Good luck if you pull a trailer back there.
The sites turned out to be small and unlevel, offering no privacy. The Wifi was barely usable. The best thing was the quietness at night.
Water taps are around and a dump station is on the way out.
We will not come back. - TheSchweitzers

This campground is all about boat access, because that's your only way to get in the water. There is a tiny swimming area that is really only good for small kids, but unless you have a boat there's no other water access here. The people were super nice and the facilities were clean. The campground is also pretty far away from Chelan, but there is a nice store in the campground for ice and firewood, etc. I thought the sites were too crowded, and there were a lot of tents on each campsite. - amandaHoops

We had hoped to stay at this RV Park, and reserved a site the previous day. However, when we arrived and hooked up at our 30 Amp site, our voltage meter displayed 104 volts with NO appliances or anything on. We tested the system by briefly turning on our electric hot water heater, which dropped the voltage to 98. We tried plugging in to the adjacent vacant site. The same problem occurred. Although the camp host was very pleasant, he acknowledged that campers who "use a meter" have said that before (i.e. that the voltage is too low). Kindly, we explained we could not stay and risk our electrical appliances and we relocated to another campground in the area. - RDR

Hate to give a bad review but it's about the facts. That said, it's not a good park. The people who run it are very nice and helpful but we weren't happy at all. We were booked for several nights but only stayed one. The 30 AMP power wasn't strong enough to run the AC and the TV. Forget about a microwave or hair dryer. The WiFi was non-existent. There are maybe 12 sites in the place with 9 or 10 being old full timers. The laundry was being worked on and didn't go into the restroom. - 2VetsRVing

This is an older city run park and not suitable for big rigs. It was near empty during our stay so we were able to maneuver into one of the pull-through spaces. The 30 amp only service sags to 105 Volts with just a light load, water pressure is OK but the sewer hookups are a bit of a challenge. Satellite TV and Internet were OK. - JScott

Park has a beautiful setting, some tent sites are on the water. RV sites have two sections. One full hook ups, others just power, water. Sites don't offer a whole lot of privacy, but the setting has much to offer. Big rigs can park in 1 thru 17, and Toad would need to be unhooked. Good cell service, after labor day camp store has limited hours on weekend. Café is across highway, but only during peak season. Staff is very helpful, and eager to please, and answer questions. - NXTSTOP

An attractive if quite small park quite close to the popular tourist village of Chelan. Generally clean and well maintained and friendly staff. Nice beach and a neat, if short, hiking trail. If you want privacy go for the unserviced tent sites which are beautiful and some are OK for a small RV. The partial and full service RV sites are jammed up side by side with no privacy which is why we have the park only a 6 rating. We have had better privacy at many private for-profit campgrounds. Nice park if you don't mind being jammed up beside your neighbours. - FRL

This was our second year camping here and always had great experience. This time we picked a "lake site" and it was super pretty. Very private came with a parking spot, close to the lake, fire pit and bench and jasmine trees all around. The restrooms were very clean and taken care of by the state park employees. The price was always reasonable, but book in advance! Did not use shower myself, but looked clean as well. Easy access to Chelan town. Will return again! - Lucie Jiraskova

Way over priced. Beautiful setting in trees alongside the lake, which is why they can charge this price but sites are very short (this is an older public campground built before there were so many large motorhomes.) It's a large park with several large loops set amongst the trees. Lots of families as it's next to a large city park/playground and beach. People have to park their toad cross-ways in front of their rv which most of the time meant that the vehicle protruded into the road. In addition, after paying $50 a night you have to use quarters to pay for a shower! Again, it's all about the location but if you have a rig longer than 30' pick your site carefully. - ldukeb

Ok, first the good. The location is great, right in the middle of Chelan and very near the lake for boating and swimming. Now the rest of the story. They allow multiple tents, sleeping bags, mattresses, floats, bikes, laundry lines etc. etc. There were several people sleeping on mattress pads in front of their rv or trailer. Cars and multiple trucks were parked on the grass etc. It looked more like a homeless encampment than an RV park. The bathrooms were woefully inadequate and dirty. There was 1 toilet and 1 urinal, 2 showers for 35-40 sites. So with all the people and kids there is no chance for a clean restroom. Another item is the check-in. We arrived around noon and were advised that check-in allowed only at 2pm. There were several sites and areas open but they would not even allow us to wait until 2pm. The made us exit the property and told us to go across town to park in the High School lot and come back at 2pm. Terrible. If you are looking for a zoo this is your place. If you are looking for a clean, quieter environment then there are a number of other options in the area. - Phoenixaway

This is a great park. It it right in the middle of downtown and within walking distance to the stores and restaurants. It has huge trees and lots of grass. The staff if very friendly. It is right next to a city park which gives you access to the lake/beach. The city park has golf, go-carts, sand volleyball courts and a skate park. The WiFi is very good, and if it goes down, there are 2 others to connect to. The water pressure is pretty low, but that might be because they seem to be working on the water lines (or something they are digging up). - Moo1966

The only reason I gave it a 9 is that, being a brand new park, there is no shade yet. Otherwise this a great spot right on the Columbia just below the Chief George Dam. Very spacious, sites surrounded by grass, boat launch nearby. Though there is a sewage treatment plant nearby, neither noise nor odor intruded. Park opened this summer and is a sister park to the Bridgeport Marina RV Park. - FerryTrails
