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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
