Wallowa Lake, Oregon
Wallowa Lake Road Map & P.O.I.
Though just less than four miles long and under a mile wide, this little lake is also home to record Kokanee, rainbow trout and even 38-pound Mackinaw.
Naturally formed by successive ice ages, glaciers formed the lake with textbook classic twin moraines to the east and west and a terminal moraine north near the town of Joseph. At just under 300 feet, the lake is very deep for it’s size.
A magnet for those from the lower, hotter parts east of the Cascades, the areas population swells greatly in summer. Visit here in the off season and you’ll enjoy a quiet and care-free solitude rarely found in this busy world.
The settlement at the south end of Wallowa Lake has shops, restaurants and other attractions. A beautiful state campground, trail head to the Eagle Cap Wilderness and an incredible tramway allow visitors to experience this wonderful area described as ‘Americas Little Switzerland.’
