Directions to Lake Wenatchee windsurfing beach (“University Beach”):

Lake Wenatchee is off of Highway 2 between Stevens Pass and Leavenworth. The turnoff from Highway 2 is clearly indicated with signs. “University Beach” is on the north shore of the lake, about halfway along its length. From 2, go north about 5 miles, past both state park entrances. Look for a left turn onto North Shore Dr. (there should also be a small sign directing you to a YMCA camp there). Go about a mile along North Shore Dr. to where the shoulder widens and you'll probably see some windsurfing vehicles parked. A short trail through the woods takes you to the beach. If you start driving by a bunch of lake front homes, you've just passed it.
