 Beebe Bridge Campground
The campground opened June 11, 2020 
5 or fewer people outside of the household may be allowed in a campsite

  Rocky Reach Park 
 Rocky Reach Park is closed. The park will remain closed until the Discovery Center reopens late spring/early summer 2021

Park Shelters
Shelters will remain closed until the County enters phase 3 of Washington's four-phased approach. Reservations are not being accepted at this time. Please note, Chelan County is only in Modified Phase 1 so it is unlikely that shelter reservations will be available in the near future so please plan accordingly.

Special Events 
All special events scheduled at PUD-managed facilities are canceled until the County enters phase 3 of Washington's four-phased approach. We understand that special events take many hours to plan and that there may be significant expense involved and wish we could provide an estimated timeframe for scheduling events. However, given current COVID-19 case counts and the fact that Chelan County is in Modified Phase 1, we are not accepting any applications for special events until further notice. Special events may resume 30 days after Chelan County reaches Phase 3, subject to any group restrictions imposed by State or County officials. 

Playgrounds

Playground equipment will remain closed until the County enters phase 3 of Washington’s four-phased approach.

Ballfields
Ballfields will remain closed to reservations until the County enters phase 3 of Washington’s four-phased approach. This includes league games and tournaments. 

*Please note that these rules and restrictions are subject to change as additional guidance is issued by State and County sources. We ask for you understanding and patience during these challenging times.

PLEASE DON'T FEED THE MARMOTS

Chelan PUD is asking for the public’s help – PLEASE, Don’t feed the marmots. These common rodents have wreaked havoc on flower plantings, as well as causing fish habitat damage and riverbank destabilization along the rocky banks of the Columbia and Chelan Rivers. 

While these critters may look cute, they can carry diseases such as Sylvatic plague, spread by marmot fleas that can come into contact with domestic pets and humans. Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever is another disease spread by marmots from infected ticks. And, marmot droppings can carry cryptosporidiosis that can cause nausea and diarrhea.
