Lost lake is not in the Wallowa Mountain range. It is in Idaho, north of Council and West of New Meadows. The Reservoir is not near Deep Creek unless you drive about 30 miles to get there. There is a slaughter gulch, but no slaughterhouse gulch. You can't stop at the dam and run Hazard creek, because the dam is on Lost Creek. Hazard is quite a few miles away. Says R Fisk
Hartland Inn is a splendid site to get some rest, and Emerald Lake is a nearby lake that
you could stop at. Lost Valley Reservoir is a beautiful lake in the Wallowa Mountains. Yeah, come here to Lost Valley Reservoir for a great time.
When we were there in September the water was very low.We didnt have to much luck fishing but I seen a couple people that caught one or two. It's a nice little lake but has a lot of bees and cattle were running all through the camp grounds. We even had a bull that was throwing up dirt and stomping his feet like he wanted to charge us. I don't know why in a forestry campground they would allow this where people camp. Anyway if you can put up with that go for it.We wont be going back.
