I’ve heard that if you’ve been to Oregon but have not visited Wallowa Lake, then we’re missing out.

There are a lot of hidden gems in Oregon, but from what I’ve seen in pictures and videos, Wallowa Lake is a keeper!

Note to self: Keep Wallowa Lake in my future must-see Oregon road trips!

Here are a few reasons why people love to visit Wallowa Lake and want to keep this bit of paradise all to themselves:

 

1 . People love to get married at Wallowa Lake Lodge; it’s quite the scenic spot to get married.

3 . People love to paddleboard in Wallowa Lake. Just slather on your sunscreen, pump up your little inflatable and hit the water. (I will be the one wearing a giant life jacket.)

 

One visitor even calls it the “Switzerland of Oregon.”

In 1806 Captain Clark of the Corps of Discovery described what is now Ecola State Park in Oregon as “…the grandest and most pleasing prospects which my eyes ever surveyed…”. I completely agree with Captain Clark and that’s why I make it a point to visit the park, which is near Cannon Beach, each year. And, there’s no better time than right now! Scroll down and take a gander at nature's glory.
