 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.

PLAYGROUND CLOSURE

Playground
Fresh air & exercise is important! Keeping our parks & trails open while protecting parks visitors & employees is important to us too. However, we can’t effectively sanitize play equipment, so until COVID-19 impacts ease, play equipment is closed. Thanks for understanding!
