Squilchuck State Park
Set deep in the mountains outside of Wenatchee, Squilchuck State Park entices the active adventurer.
More than 10 miles of mountain bike trails fan out from a single group campground. Within minutes, you’ll find yourself careening around corners and pedaling into the hills, where wild bike rides await. Ride along Mission Ridge Road or out to the Wheeler Reservoir for a more rugged day.
Winter opens up new possibilities, as fat tire snow biking is available, along with cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and family snow play.
Does this sound like your park? Reserve Squilchuck’s group campsite for your biking, hiking or equestrian group. The sites, clustered around a common area, make for fun overnights, and beginning mountain bikers in your group can sharpen their skills at the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance’s practice area.
Looking for a rustic mountain setting for your wedding or family reunion? Check out the Squilchuck Lodge, with its wall of windows, soaring ceilings and two-story fireplace. Balconies and outdoor picnic tables make it a charming indoor-outdoor venue in summer. The Squilchuck Lodge, originally built in the 1950s, is not ADA compliant.
Squilchuck State Park is a 249-acre park located 9 miles south of Wenatchee. Its high desert hills are covered with forests of fir and ponderosa pine. The park sits below Mission Ridge at an elevation of 3,200 feet.
