Stehekin, Washington

Stehekin is a picturesque, sparsely-populated, remote community lying at the upper end of the 55-mile long Lake Chelan in the glacier-carved Stehekin Valley of Washington State's North Cascades. It is the ultimate get-a-way destination for those wanting a quiet corner of the world in which to unwind through quiet relaxation or the exercising of muscles in an environment of magnificent mountains, dark forests, heather meadows and waterfalls.

Less than 100 people make up the roster of permanent residents. This tiny population swells in summer months with the addition of seasonal workers and travelers who come from all over the United States and various parts of the world. Many of the seasonal workers are employed by the National Park Service or the few private businesses providing hospitality services such as lodging, food and local transportation.

Getting to Stehekin will be by passenger ferry, private boat, floatplane, horseback, or, on foot. The community has a road, but no road connections to the outside world.

Reservations for accommodations are highly recommended. You can choose from a lodge at the boat landing belonging to the National Park Service and operated by a concessionaire, or, private cabins, a ranch, vacation rentals, and campgrounds.

The community's solitary road begins at the boat landing and follows the meandering Stehekin River to Cottonwood Camp, 23 miles up the glacier-carved Stehekin Valley. The first four miles are paved, and then its gravel from there on.
