Wallowa-Whitman National Forest Lakes List

A complete list of lakes in Wallowa-Whitman National Forest.



Wallowa-Whitman National Forest is located in the northeast corner of Oregon. It includes 2 mountain ranges within it's boundaries — the Wallowa Mountains and Elkhorn Mountains (part of the Blue Mountain range). It also includes Hells Canyon, which stretches along the Oregon and Idaho border.


The national forest is broken into 6 ranger districts (as far as I can tell, based off of topo maps): Wallowa Valley Ranger District, Eagle Cap Ranger District, La Grande Ranger District, Baker Ranger District, Pine Ranger District, and Hells Canyon National Recreation Area/District. 


Progress: 3.31%


Below are the lakes in Wallowa-Whitman National Forest. I made two tabs where you can either look for a lake in alphabetical order or by ranger district.

Resources

Forest Service

The best place to find information about trails, roads, closures, and each ranger district is from the forest service website.


Here are a few shortcut links to important pages on the Forest Service website:

Map



Yellow – Lakes I have been to (and I have a post about)

Red – Lakes I haven’t been to yet or don’t have a post about

Purple - Ranger District


This map doesn’t link to any posts on my website it only shows the locations of all the different lakes.


For exploring the map in more detail, I’d recommend clicking on the link in the top right corner of the map above that says “Open in CalTopo.” It will make it easier to explore the map and the lakes in more detail. All lakes are assigned to folders by ranger districts. On the left sidebar of the CalTopo website, you can click on a lake name and it will show you where it is on the map. Under the lakes I’ve been to there will be the URL for the corresponding post on my website. You can copy and paste the link into your search engine to see the post.
