In the far northeast corner of Oregon lies Wallowa Country. This “Land of Winding Waters” contains 4,000 square miles of majestic snow-capped mountains, verdant valleys, teeming rivers and deep canyons. The land embodies a rich cultural history of the Nez Perce people who occupied it for over 12,000 years. Come experience some of America’s wildest and most remote backcountry as well as a burgeoning arts community. Wallowa Lake, a glacier carved wonder invites boaters, fishermen, waterskiers, and swimmers.

Wallowa Lake Camp is located near the south end of a large, pristine, glacial lake at the foot of the Wallowa Mountains and the Eagle Cap Wilderness Area, the largest wilderness area in the state of Oregon. Towering mountains and evergreens, a river, and the nearby lake provide a peaceful, picturesque setting.
