I have seen pairs of bald eagles diving to fish, heard coyotes at night while camping and lots of deer and chipmunks. A cold pristine mountain lake, worth the drive.

This is a must see if you're the outdoors type person. Everything about the Wallows is awesome. The lake, the park, camping, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, boating. You name it the Wallows has it all for the outdoors people.
