Wallowa Lake is one of the most iconic scenes in Northeast Oregon and my wife and I favorite areas. When we first came into the area we dreamed of vast natural scenery where people could relax, unwind and explore. Wallowa Lake is a big part of that experience.
The lake goes by many names such as "The Crown Jewel", "The Sapphire in a Sea of Astounding Landscapes", and the "WOW of the Wallowas." When you drive into the Joseph Oregon for the first time, the mountains and lake couldn't be more beautiful. Many travelers and tempted to take out their cell phones and collect the memory.
This ribbon lake, with its deep blue crystal-clear water and rugged mountain framing was formed by a series of glaciers. The rich and fresh mountain air, brilliant night sky, are the perfect place to relax and recover from the stresses of life.
Wallowa Lake has tons of activities that appeal to everyone in your family no matter what the age. Many of our visitors take the local tram ride and spend the day relaxing in the clouds. Kids love the local miniature golf, horse ride or splash each other in bumper boats. It's the perfect place to leave electronics behind and reconnect as a family.
