The Upper Cow Lake and Lower Cow Lake are located in Malheur County in Southeast Oregon, approximately 15 miles west-northwest of Jordon Valley. These are flat, playa lakes, that were formed when the Jordon Craters lava flow blocked stream flows. The area contains large areas of open water and emergent vegetation. This cluster of lakes and marshes regularly has several thousand waterfowl and over 100 shorebirds in season
