Alta Lake

Alta LakeLocated in Washington State you can enjoy our rental service at Alta Lake State Park where we offer boats, jet skis, water sport lessons, tours, and waverunners.  This is a 180-acre camping park where the mountainous pine forests meet the desert in beautiful setting for all group sizes to enjoy.  Alta Lake is about two miles long and a half mile wide so visiting this lake on the weekdays is preferred. The park offers good trout fishing during summer months and ice fishing in the winter. 

Lake Chelan, with its many activities, is 30 minutes away and the Columbia River is only four miles away if you want a larger area to enjoy watercraft.  The Alta Lake area was given to State Parks by the city of Pateros and was established "Alta Lake State Park" in 1951.  The lake was named "Alta" in 1900 by Mr. Heinz, a jeweler from Wilbur, who was mining in the area.  Finding the lake without a name, he called it after his daughter, Alta Heinz
