Accommodation and Activities
Most pilots choose to camp at Beebe Campground on the Colombia River. Beebe is an awesome facility with pristine grass, clean bathrooms and nice camp sites. Sites are $25/night and are first come first serve. YOU CANNOT RESERVE SITES. There is a max of 8 people and 3 vehicles per site.
In order to get a site on the weekend during the summer you usually have to be waiting for someone to leave around mid-morning and grab the site immediately it becomes vacant. Sites are much easier to come by mid-week. Beebe Campground is located 10 minutes drive from Chelan and 5 minutes from Chelan Falls Park.
There is also the Lakeshore RV Park located near downtown Chelan. While the Lakeshore RV park has a more central location within walking distance to restaurants and shops it is not as nice, more expensive - but it does take advance reservations.
