Wallowa Lake area has activities for everyone in the family.  If you're interested in a campground surrounded on three sides by 9,000' tall snow-capped mountains and a large clear lake, this is the area for you.  To fully enjoy this popular fishing and boating site, check out the Wallowa Lake Marina link www.wallowalakemarina.com.

Outside the park area within walking distance you can enjoy wilderness trails at the Wallowa Lake trailhead, horseback riding, go-karts, canoeing, miniature golf or ride a tramway to the top of Mt. Howard, elevation 8,256 ft (a rise of 4,000 ft).

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 will keep you interested for hours. Wallowa Lake also serves as a gateway to visit Hells Canyon, the deepest gorge in North America.
