I wqs recently up in Lake Chelan in Washington. I am curious if it is practical to paddle a Kayak from the 25 Mile State park on the west side of the lake, north to Stehekin (and back)?
I would love to do this as a slow 2-4 day trip, but I am not sure if there are any areas along the way that one could camp. (I know about lodging in Stehekin).
I have read about steep cliffs, etc. I have never been up that way looking at the terrain.
If you have any information that may help me, it would be appreciated...
Thanks in advance

This lake is notorious for strong afternoon winds and few places to get off it. The water is cold with few other boats around for rescue. Do not take any inexperienced people on a trip like the one you are talking about. Paddlers need good bracing, spray skirts, etc and experience with large waves.
