Welcome to Wallowa County, Oregon

Surrounded by the Eagle Cap Wilderness, glacial lakes, working ranches, and the wide open spaces of Eastern Oregon, it is considered one of the seven Wonders of Oregon, and the gateway to Hells Canyon.

THANK YOU all the citizens of Wallowa County

The Wallowa County Road Department and everyone at the Wallowa County Government would like to offer a HUGE SHOUTOUT to all of our amazing Wallowa County citizens who helped one another during the latest severe winter storm. We can’t say enough how much we appreciate our local folks who came out with their own equipment to dig out and keep roads clear. These areas include Promise, Swamp Creek, Alder Slope, Lower Alder Slope, and many others. Thank you to every citizen who helped their neighbor, friends, family, and elders with clearing driveways and walk ways.
