“Prineville Reservoir fun place”

Prineville Reservoir State Park

We live 6 miles from the Prineville Reservoir so needless to say it is in our back yard. Great place for family fun activities. You have swimming, boating, camping {RVs, tents, and cabins}, fishing {crappie, trout, bass, and some catfish} Also an excellent handicap fishing platform. Nice boat ramp and fish cleaning station. Don't be surprised when you wake up in the morning to a herd of deer munching some of the lawn around your camp site. I do not know the particulars in the camping fees and regulation because we live so close we don't have to stay over night but I am sure Oregon Parks and Regulations can answer any questions you might have. The reservoir is a safe place to go it is patrolled by the "Crook County Sheriffs Marine Patrol".

It's clean, has showers, lots of chimpmunks that are used to you and it's on the water. It's a state park camp site and those are generally well-run. There was a paved walking path that paralleled the lake and day camp sites from one end to the other by the boat launch. I noticed people walking in in the morning. I noticed a hike or bike in site as well(no vehicle parking) There were lots of RV's and families with water toys and such.

We have stayed here a few times with our RV. We have been up there many times with our boat to enjoy water sports with the kids and friends. etc. Very nice lake and patrolled well by the county sheriff's dept. Very scenic and not crowded during the week. Only drawback is in late Aug or early Sept when the lake level drops. It is rocky in places and we hit one with our boat once. May, June & july are usually fine for boating though. Wish the restaurant was open more often too. Ideal for family fun.

If you're a hiker like me, you may not find Prineville Reservoir as interesting as other state parks nearby. I do think the park does make for a nice, quiet alternative to those places. Not a whole lot in the way of trails, but if you're looking to picnic or do a lot of water activities, this is the place to do it around Prineville. The park is far away from any of the main roads which makes it perfect for some peace and quiet which we had. Campsites and cabins are available to those who want spend the nights out there. We did find a trail in the Jasper Point portion of the park down the road from the main area, but it was getting late in the day to fully explore. Worthwhile detour in the Prineville area
