    Great time Kayaking on Lake Wallowa with JO Paddle.

    We had a fantastic time on Lake Wallowa. We did a three hour kayak experience from the north end with JO paddle. This family own business puts their heart and soul into providing you the best experience on the water. We enjoyed our time immensely and highly recommend this experience. At the end of our time on the water, the owner gave us numerous tips about other hikes and activities that we could do in the area. So the next time you’re in Joseph Oregon I would highly recommend that you rent kayaks or stand up paddle boards with JO paddle. We have rented kayaks in the San Juan Islands, Seattle Washington and other places and JO Paddle was by far the best experience we’ve ever had.

    Evening on the lake

    JoPaddle was a wonderful experience on the lake. Guides were friendly and knowledgeable. They were watching weather forecasts to be sure we had a safe and enjoyable evening. I’d recommend this highly.
