Lincoln Rock State Park

Lincoln Rock State Park is an 80-acre camping park on the east side of Lake Entiat, created by Rocky Reach Dam blocking the flow of the Columbia River north of Wenatchee. The park, a popular place for swimming, water-skiing, and respite from the hot sun, was named for a basalt outcropping said to resemble the profile of Abraham Lincoln.


The Rocky Reach Trail connects Lincoln Rock State Park and the Apple Capital Loop Trail in East Wenatchee and enhances tourism offerings in the area. The 5-mile non-motorized recreation trail is perfect for pedestrians and bicycles and provides beautiful views and a unique recreation opportunity along the Columbia River. The trail is a paved surface with rolling hills that is ADA accessible. The trail also provides a non-motorized transportation alternative to busy highways in the area. The trail hours vary by season but during the summer is typically open 6:30  am to dusk. The multi-phase trail project completed in summer of 2015 took place over a 20-year period and cost $3.75 million in capital bond funds, with grant support from Chelan County Public Utility District and donations from the Complete the LOOP Coalition. Interpretive displays along the trail provide information for visitors.
