If you are looking for a rental or tour on the same day, just give us a call and if we have availabilities, we will get you on Wallowa Lake.

Online reservations typically close at midnight the night before, on occasion we may leave open if there are availabilities.

We are open Thursday -Monday and sometimes open dependent on weather on Tuesday and Wednesday (this will show up under our calendar as an available date) or give us a call.

Wallowa lake itself is a breathtaking ribbon lake 1 mile south of Joseph, Oregon. The crystal-clear, deep blue lake was formed by a series of Pleistocene glaciers and is at an elevation of 4,372 ft. Impounded by high moraines.


Spend quality time breathing in the clean mountain air, soaking up the warm sun, or gasping at the stars on our majestic mountain lake. Peer through your glass-bottom kayak to see natural treasures, graceful fish, and enormous car-sized boulders hidden beneath the surface.



Josh was great and it was so refreshing to hang out with someone who takes pride in his community and family. Be sure to book your trip at the beginning of your stay in the Wallowa’s so you can get the run down from Josh on all the best things to do, trails to hike, and local “hot spots”. Ok. No real hot spots, but truly an amazing place to spend a peaceful time with great people and beautiful scenery. The night time kayak adventure is a complete “next level” in connecting with nature.

Hannah and her husband were very helpful and accommodating with our time on the lake. We had a little bit of a rough start due to the weather but when we contacted Hannah she was more than happy to adjust our reservations. You can tell how much they actually love and enjoy what they do as a company and that they’re all about providing a great experience for everyone. A very warm and friendly environment. I highly recommend Joseph Oregon Paddle for your time on Wallowa Lake.

Such a fantastic experience. Highly recommended. The process was so easy! We had a wonderful time making memories with our kids. We’ll be back!

The 3 of us (adults) opted for the night kayak ride with the glass bottomed boats. What a hoot! The equipment was detailed and in beautiful shape. The guides were well informed and engaging. But most impressive was the attitude of caring and safety that the family team demonstrated, well beyond the minimum required. Thank you Jo Paddle of Wallowa Lake Oregon for making our night trip such a lasting memory!

Very informative and caring couple who runs Jo Paddle. They are thorough in what to do if you are new to paddle boarding, and had extra amenities like sunscreen, water and bug spray at no additional cost if you needed it. They also had a lot of good, not-so-well known information on things to do in the area. It was extremely helpful and appreciated.

We had a great time on the Nighttime Adventure Tour! Our guide was local and knew the lake well. We loved the stability of the kayaks and the see-through feature. We got to see the bottom of the lake several times and our guide led us to areas to see 2-3lb trout swimming under our kayaks! By the end it was very dark, which was amazing for seeing the stars! We highly recommend this company and tour! Thank you JO Paddle for a memorable experience!
