This is, indeed, worthy of the title 'American Alps.' The glacier carved granite mountains look just like you are standing in front of the Matterhorn, or the Eagles Nest of the European Alps. Incredibly beautiful, clean and no crowds! Well worth the trip to this NE corner of Oregon. Wait! Don't go! Once you see it you'll tell people, they'll... More

We have stopped here three times now in our travels and love the hiking and 4x4ing that is available in this area. We will continue to visit this area often in our RV travels.

Our own Swiss Alps. The lake and wildlife are always beautiful! Be sure you take the tram up to see the TRUE beauty in the surroundings. For fun there are go carts and other fun activities in Wallowa. Keep your eyes open as there are deer everywhere who seem to not see you at all...

The area of Wallowa Lake is spectacular, and the town of Joesph is a fun place to spend a day exploring. Take the tram to the top of Mt Howard and hike the trails for unbelievable views. Our travel blog has pictures to whet your appetite. www.2vegans2wheels.com

Stayed in La Grande in our motorhome. This was a beautiful day trip. The state park and lake are well worth the drive! Take a picnic lunch!

Wallowa Lake Lodge is a great old hotel. The lake was great and we enjoy our paddle boat ride. The breakfast at the hotel was excellent.

First of all, the lake is cradled between majestic, snow-capped mountains. The water is clean and clear. The trout fishing is great. You can rent boats or go to a little amusement park with bumper boats. There are cabins, hotel rooms and other accommodations. There is a team with a restaurant on top of the mountain. There are restaurants, fish... More
