The Chelan Gorge is the narrow, rocky channel of the Chelan River, located in an area with limited cell phone coverage and hazardous terrain. Rescues are extremely difficult. Changes in river flow can create hazardous conditions quickly and unpredictably, including higher water levels, fast currents, and potential entrapment. Chelan PUD has posted dozens of signs warning of the no-trespass areas for public safety.
For more information about Lake Chelan Dam operations, including lake levels, visit chelanpud.org/lakechelan.
Opportunities abound to safely explore the outdoors in the Lake Chelan area. Check out The Reach 1 Trail, Chelan Falls Park, Chelan Falls Powerhouse Park, Chelan Riverwalk Park. In Manson, try Old Mill Park and Manson Bay Park.
