Wallowa Lake makes the perfect base-camp for a myriad of outdoor activities. You’ll find plenty of year-round recreational activities in this area known as "The Little Switzerland of America."
Popular summer activities include boating, water skiing, fishing, and swimming, horseback riding, hiking, golf, go-carts, and biking. Photography and wildlife watching can also be particularly rewarding.
The Wallowa Lake Tramway is only a short walk away. From the top of 8,256-foot Mt. Howard you can enjoy the enormous views of the near 10,000-foot peaks of the Eagle Cap Wilderness and the Wallowa Valley below, including the most perfectly formed glacial lake in the world - Wallowa Lake.
Travel to nearby Hat Point and you can enjoy a spectacular overlook into the deepest gorge in North America, Hells Canyon. You’ll find a feast for the eyes, both high and low.
Winter fun includes snowmobiling, winter skiing, ice fishing and snow-shoeing. Downhill skiers and boarders will enjoy our community-run ski area: Ferguson Ridge.
Add in a trip to a high alpine lake or take a day riding the rapids of a wild and scenic river and come away with memories that last a lifetime.
