With a campground surrounded on three sides by 9,000' tall snow-capped mountains and a large, clear lake, this is the area for you. The lake is a popular fishing and boating site. Around the Wallowa Lake area, you can enjoy hiking wilderness trails, horseback riding, bumper boats, canoeing, miniature golf or ride a tramway to the top of one of the mountains. Wildlife is abundant in the area.

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. 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.

Description

Fun, Fun, Fun! Come learn about Kokanee, the Landlocked Salmon in Wallowa Lake. The Kokanee are usually spawning and running the Wallowa River this time of year. You may get to see several Kokanee going home to complete their life cycle. What a great opportunity to learn about the "Redd" in the river. There will be presentations throughout the day, local businesses and community booths talking about Kokanee and their effect on the surrounding watershed and the Wallowa County people. There will be activities for kids, food, scavenger hunt with prizes donated by the Wallowa Lake businesses, live music by local musicians and a picture board for photo opportunities. We will be inviting Blue Mountain Wildlife again to bring their magnificent birds of prey. Remember everyone should stay out of the river due to sensitivity of the spawning kokanee. Wallowa Lake broke 4 records in 2010 for the largest kokanee caught.
