Wallowa Lake State Park provides opportunities for camping, yurt stays, cabin stays, boating, fishing, picnicking, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, viewing scenery, bird watching, viewing wildlife and enjoying nature.<\/p>

If you're interested in a campground surrounded on three sides by 9,000' tall snowcapped mountains and a large, clear lake, this is the area for you. The lake is a popular fishing and boating site. The park offers a marina with a reservable boat moorage. You can enjoy hiking wilderness trails and a 1-mile nature trail, horseback riding the equestrian trails, bumper boats, canoeing, miniature golf or ride a tramway to the top of one of the mountains (a rise of 4,000'). Wildlife is abundant in the area.<\/p>\r\n

Visitors can rent one of the park's two wooden-sided yurts. Each of the circular, domed structures has a carpeted floor, lockable wooden door, lights, heating and beds. If you prefer something larger, rent the park's two-story, 900-square-foot cabin just outside the campground. Its six rooms can accommodate eight overnight guests.<\/p>\r\n

There are gift shops nearby and a thriving artist community which does world-class bronze castings. Tours are available through the foundries and the showroom displays (they'll keep you interested for hours). Wallowa Lake also serves as a gateway to visit Hells Canyon, the deepest gorge in North America. There are activities for everyone in the family.<\/p>\r\n

Vital stats: The campground provides 121 full hookup campsites, and 89 tent sites(maximum site 90 feet). In addition, the two yurts and the cabin are available for overnight stays. The day-use area and boat ramp open at 6 am. each day.<\/p><\/p>","post_name":"wallowa-lake-state-park","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.2688","lng":"-117.212","distance":"0.1","permalink":"\/see-do\/natural-wonders\/forests-parks-refuges\/state-parks\/wallowa-lake-state-park\/","terms":"a State Park<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"8972","post_title":"Eagle Cap Wilderness Adventures & Pack Station","post_content":"

Wallowa Lake rests in the shadow of the majestic Wallowa Mountains, just south of the town of Joseph. Formed by a glacier roughly nine million years ago, the lake is five-miles long, a mile wide, and reaches depths of nearly 300 feet. Wallowa Lake’s beauty and recreational possibilities have been recognized for generations; the first hotel, restaurants and dance hall were established here in 1880! Today, visitors come to fish for the lake’s kokanee and rainbow trout, to waterski and even parasail. (The Wallowa River, which feeds and drains from Wallowa Lake, is also popular with trout anglers.) The Eagle Cap Wilderness Area borders the lake on the south, and offers tremendous hiking opportunities; mini golf, go-karts and paddle boats are available nearby for kids young and old. If you want to scale a mountain but aren’t quite ready for a climb, the Wallowa Lake Tramway climbs 3,700 feet to the summit of Mount Howard, at 8,150 feet. Marina services, camping and lodging are available at the lake.
