Lake Chelan is the deepest lake in Washington state at 1486 feet deep and the third deepest in the US. It’s a natural lake that was gouged out by glaciers. The deepest part of this 51 mile long lake is near the outflow at the town of Chelan.

In 1927 a dam was added to the lake which raised the surface level by about 20 feet to around 1098 feet above sea level (the bottom of the lake is 388 feet below sea level).

The water flowing out of the lake fills the Chelan River, one of the state’s shortest rivers which empties into the mighty Columbia River just 2.5 miles from the dam.
