Wallowa Lake is a perfect morainal lake, which means it was formed by a glacier (about 9 million years ago). The lake is 5 miles long, and a mile wide, with a depth of 283'. As early as 1880 hotel, restaurants, and boat services even a dance hall were available at Wallowa Lake. The lake is approx. 1 mile from downtown Joseph and offers a trail head that takes you deep into the Eagle Cap Wilderness Area. A State Park is also located at Wallowa Lake with full hook ups and tent camping too. Please visit some of the links provided for more information.
