Information About The Park

Stehekin is a remote mountain community that is nestled in a valley at the far end of Lake Chelan. Stehekin, meaning “the way through” to the cascades, can only be accessed by ferry, foot, or sea plane. The 11 mile road in the valley stretches north to the south entrance of North Cascades National Park, the gateway to over 300 glaciers and the most jagged peaks in the Pacific Northwest. With no cell reception, and limited internet use, Stehekin operates out of “what America used to be”. Whether one stays in the valley or ventures to the rugged peaks, this peaceful gem in the mountains will not disappoint in its majestic design and beautiful people.
