Wenatchee Confluence State Park is a 197-acre year-round camping park at the confluence of the Wenatchee and Columbia rivers. Situated at the edge of town, the park has two personalities. The North Confluence is urban and recreational, while the South Confluence is a wetland natural area. Muskrat and beaver may be seen in the rivers here. The park has shaded, grassy areas, sports fields, a roped-off river swimming beach, a boat launch and walking access to the Horan Natural Area. In 1990, State Parks classified these park lands so that the north site would be a recreation area and the south site a natural area. The south site was designated the “Horan Natural Area,” 97 acres of natural environment and wetlands.
