Our Hearts Are Broken...
2022 brings many changes... and our hearts go out to the McDowell Family.
Due to an unexpected change in property ownership, we are not able to operate on the ever iconic "Pack Station" property we have leased in the past. We are doing our best to try and find a suitable property to continue offering short rides, 1 hr rides and 2 hr rides, but at this time we are without a safe location for the horses, our staff and YOU, the clients.
Please feel free to reach out via e-mail or phone to see if we have availability for 1 hr and 2 hr rides throughout the summer. We are still offering half day and all day rides but we will have different departure locations. We will also continue offering gear drops, deluxe camps and other rides as we navigate our newest challenge. Thank you all who have supported us, continue to support us and pray with us to find a new home for Wallowa Lake Pack Station so we can go back to operating - business as usual!

In The Beautiful Eagle Cap Wilderness
