Wallowa Lake Lodge

Wallowa Lake Lodge

On the shores of glacial Wallowa Lake, historic Wallowa Lake Lodge is a peaceful retreat in Oregon's spectacular Wallowa Mountains. Like one of the great national park lodges, but without the crowds, the lodge offers wilderness hiking, fishing, boating and more, just steps from its front door.

Since 1923, the historic Wallowa Lake Lodge has offered a peaceful retreat at the head of the lake. Sit on the expansive back deck and enjoy the quiet view towards the back yard and the lake in the distance. 

Walk out of the lodge into a virtual park, where towering Ponderosa pines and Douglas firs rise to the sky. Wallowa River flows through braided channels into Wallowa Lake next to the lodge, creating a rich landscape for wildlife. Mule deer roam the lawn daily, serene in a place they’ve known for millennia. Kokanee salmon turn the river red in late summer as they swim upstream to spawn. Just a short hike from the lodge, the Eagle Cap Wilderness begins, with both an aerial tram and trails to lead you past waterfalls and meadows to alpine peaks.

Stay in one of the lodge’s 22 rooms—some with balconies and all with private baths—or in one of eight rustic cabins, many with lake and wetland views. Hike, mountain bike, boat, fish, swim or paraglide without ever getting into your car. At the end of the day, your lodge is waiting for you.
