Wallowa Lake

Nestled in the northeastern corner of Oregon state is a pristine lake that is of exquisite beauty. Wallowa lake is a perfect morainal lake that was formed by a glacier many years ago. This five mile long lake is a mile wide and 283' deep. Snow-capped peaks, some as high as 9,000' surround the lake on three sides. At the edge of the Eagle Cap Wilderness Area, the Wallowa Lake community of cabin dwellers and naturalists claim to be the Little Switzerland of America. Abundant wildlife, hiking, water sports, and a tramway provide for a wealth of outdoor activities where nature can be enjoyed and appreciated.
