Lake Chelan Dock Site Permits

Refrigerator Harbor boat dockBoaters who use federal docks on Lake Chelan will be required to display a "Lake Chelan Federal Dock Site Permit." A daily permit costs $10 while a season pass costs $75. Ten docks managed by the U.S. Forest Service and five by the National Park Service will require dock site permits.

Funds collected by the sale of dock site permits have been used to repair the docks at Moore Point Campground, Prince Creek Campground, Flick Creek Campground, Corral Falls, and the Stehekin Marina docks. Graham Harbor dock is currently being repaired.
