Description

Lake Wallula, located in northeastern Oregon and southeastern Washington along the Columbia River, provides for water fun and relaxation. The landscape is characteristic of wide-open vistas with few trees while the climate is arid. Popular activities include boating, camping, swimming, water skiing, hunting, and fishing. Recreation facilities range from full service campgrounds and picnic areas to undeveloped remote beaches. View migrating fish and tour the powerhouse and navigation lock. Lodging and restaurants are nearby. Up River near the junction of Highways 12 and 730 in Washington is an area known as Wallula Gap where the canyon narrows. Wallula Gap is the site of colorful Indian lore and is a place where interesting natural phenomena occurred during an ancient catastrophic event known as the Great Missoula Floods. Up river near the Tri-Cities, Sacajawea State Park is one of the campsites of Lewis and Clark. Nearby Hat Rock State Park, off Oregon Highway 730, is an area where Lewis and Clark made a special entry in their journals about the prominent rock formation that resembled a hat.
