A rock with a face like Abe Lincoln’s overlooks this friendly popular state park on 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 and cabins and a boat launch and 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 Rocky Reach 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 20 miles of walking, skateboarding and bicycling fun. 

So, pack up your boat, swimsuits, fishing gear, bikes and skateboards. Throw in the bats, balls, gloves and rackets. 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.

Park features

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 though the basalt outcropping resembled the profile of President Abraham Lincoln.
