Multiple people had told me Wallowa Lake was a must see area. It was in fact beautiful. Lots of hiking trails and the campground was incredibly well thought out - no site was far from water or restrooms. The campground was crowded. If you want privacy, it looked like the C-loop was the best as it backed up against a mountain. The most disappointing part was the lake. If you did not have a ski boat, it was very difficult to use. The lake access was either disgustingly muddy or you had to traverse down steep boulders. There was no place to just sit and relax comfortably around the lake. We even canoed around the lake and couldn't find a good spot to relax and go swimming. My friend had a 5- and 2- year old and it was almost impossible to get them into the lake easily. There are some public docs, but they're hard to get to if you don't have a ski boat. While we loved the area and enjoyed our trip, we'll be looking for a more accessible lake for future trips.
