“Great place and people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

Great boats and motors! We had no trouble with our boat and have been frequenting the Marina for years. The boats are clean and well maintained. The people are also great and super friendly! We enjoy coming back year after year! We often enjoy sitting on the patio and watching the people on the water. The marina employees have way more patience with people with little or no boating experience than I ever would! Overall, fun place and people!

“Bring your own boat!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

Bring your own boat! ... The employee sent our 4 member family out on a 15' powerboat after struggling herself to get the engine started. She advised us "never to buy a Johnson engine as it is not good". We asked for a different boat, in the hopes of avoiding problems with the engine. She said "we probably wouldn't have too much trouble".
On our trip back we tried to start the engine and couldn't get it started. At that point, the engine pull cord broke.
Luckily, my husband was strong enough to oar us back to the marina. This could have been very tramatic if we would have been further across the lake or had we no one strong enough to oar against the fairly strong current of Spring runoff.
The owner of Wallowa Lake Marina is unappreciative of our delima.
Our advise to you, make sure the engine seems to start and run well before venturing accross Wallowa Lake! ... or as we will do next time, bring your own boat!
