Minam State Recreation Area

72501 Oregon 82
Wallowa, OR 97885

This park is located in a remote steep valley. Large pine trees dominate the landscape. The picturesque Wallowa River flows through the park and is noted for its fishing and rafting. Steelhead fishing in the spring and fall attracts many people. Wildlife is abundant; deer, bear, elk and an occasional cougar are seen in the area. Raft rentals are available at a nearby store and with a trip down the river, you could even see Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. A wide variety of flowers bloom in the spring.
