  • This was a wonderfull experience and I really enjoyed the serenity of the place it was so great I got in touch with nature and wildlife  more »
  • I loved going there last year for the first time. We are going again in 2019. It was nice to have a little store at the park, so we didn't have to travel to town.  more »
  • I love Wallowa Lake & Joseph! The state park is part of the experience is as well. Between the excellent food, camping, the town (of Joseph), the gondola (a must do!), and the lake itself, I highly suggest you treat yourself to a visit of this area. Originally settled by Swiss immigrants in the mid-1800s, Joseph and the surrounding area is filled with history (it even looks like Switzerland). It's worth the drive!
  • Great family fun. Lots of hiking trails, water activities (either on your own or with rentals), campground & bathrooms are nice and well kept, good play area for the kids, nice day picnic area. Locally in the town there are horse rentals, go cart rentals, miniature golf, ice cream shop and a gondola to the top of the mt for a reasonable price. Good grocery store if you forgot something from home and many gift shops. All in all, you cant go wrong if u choose to come to this area.
