Referred to as “The Crown Jewel”, “The Sapphire in a Sea of Astounding Landscapes”, and the “WOW of the Wallowas.” The lake is about 3.7 miles long and about 3/4 mile wide with a depth of 299 feet, which, for a lake of such size is very deep.  Wallowa Lake is the largest of several glacial cirque lakes in the area. It was formed by repeated periods of glaciation that began some 3 million years ago and ended about 15,000 BC. The glaciers formed high in the Wallowa Mountains . As these glaciers advanced and retreated they carved out the river valleys and carried down rocks and sediment forming the twin and terminal moraines which rise over the lake some 900’.  The Wallowa Lake area was once the original homeland of the Wallowa band of the Nez Perce tribe led by Chief Joseph until driven out in 1877 . In 1880 the town nearest to Wallowa Lake, Joseph, was named after Chief Joseph.
