I just bought a tent trailer with a rack for my pontoon boats, looking for lakes that you can camp right on the shoreline, the missus ain't keen on packing boats around and likes to sit with her feet in the water while she sips her ice tea.

Wapato Lake near Lake Chelan (Manson) has camp sites on the lake. Hook-ups too I think, and a little store. I've not fished this lake, but the shallow end looks good for fly fishing. About a mile straight back from the Casino.

You can go to the Washington State Parks page and search by park features. Camping and fishing could be your search criteria, you'll get your list.

kerry, the owner of the property at vogler has a couple sites available i've seen him advertise them on craigslist
You are right. I forgot about that weirdo. Don't know about you but I am not staying at that cat's place. Way to strange for me and I can take a lot of strange.

So with all these lakes that have camping and fishing, you guys ought to hook up a family angler and drop a geocache at each one. That will greatly improve my chances of a family outing there and boost my odds of getting to fish them.

Big Twin has a nice campground (with showers and hook ups), good fishing and it is close to Winthrop which has lots to do if your wife gets bored with fishing! Rick

He's weird... but he is a nice guy. I've talked to him a couple times while collecting water quality samples for work. He has a huge interest in the lake, and it's health is one of his main priorities. So he can't be THAT bad. Plus, if I remember right, he has the campers stay on the other side of the lake kind of in the trees. you have to hike around, but I bet you could park a trailer down at the pull out.

He is that bad, and worse.... He thinks he owns the lake and certainly, makes you feel as unwelcome as possible. For campers, in tents, he has them use the outhouse in the launch area. There's more but I will leave it at that.

He has a huge interest in the lake because he sees it as a money maker. He absolutely despises the fact that the old boy that used to own the place gave WDFW public access. If he could he would take away that access and turn the place into a pay to play lake.

He does own the lake. That property and one other adjacent property own the lake.

The last time I was at that little lake there were signs on the right side of the lake saying that the land there belonged to WDFW.

I was under the impression that that nut case at the launch was there for just the opening and closing of the gate. He opened it at about 6 and closed it at dusk. Plus, didn't somebody try to put in a campground at the upper left hand side ??
