Lincoln Rock State Park

Lincoln Rock State Park
13253 SR 2 E.

A rock with a face like Abe Lincoln's overlooks this friendly popular state park above the Rocky Reach Dam. Folded into the rich, mauve hills along the Columbia River, Lincoln Rock State Park is a classic, with a community atmosphere, shaded campsites, cabins and a boat launch with mooring docks on Lake Entiat.

Owned by the Chelan County Public Utility District and managed by State Parks, the portion of the park adjacent to the campgrounds resembles a city park, with ball fields, tennis and basketball courts, a playground and public swim beach.

The park is home to the Rocky Reach Trail, a paved, mixed-use ADA-accessible trail. The trail connects to the Apple Capital Loop Trail, a paved walk/bike path that stretches southwest to Wenatchee Confluence State Park, encircles the Wenatchee and East Wenatchee riverfronts and extends south to Rock Island Hydro Park. Altogether, these trails offer more than 20 miles of walking, jogging and bicycling fun.

So, pack up your boat, camping gear, fishing gear and bikes. Throw in the bats, balls, gloves, rackets and swimsuits. And don't forget that book you've been trying to read. Lincoln Rock State Park offers a well-rounded family vacation, guaranteed to keep everyone busy and also give you the social camping and R and R you've been craving.

Lincoln Rock State Park is an 86-acre camping park on the east side of Lake Entiat, which was created by the Rocky Reach Dam. The park was named Lincoln Rock by late 19th-century explorers who thought the basalt outcropping resembled the profile of President Abraham Lincoln.
