Prineville Reservoir, OR

Boating, camping, hiking and fishing top the lengthy list of outdoor recreation choices at Prineville Reservoir, a 3,000-acre lake in the central part of the state, 10 miles south of Prineville.

This high-desert fishery has 43 miles of sloping, rocky shoreline and a nice mixture of fish species. Bass, crappie and trout share this deep-water gem, and draw anglers from across the state for the quality fishing opportunities. There are beaches for swimming, areas for fishing from the bank and three main boat access areas. Prineville Reservoir State Park and Jasper Point State Park, both mid lake on the north side, have launch ramps. Powder House Cove Boat Ramp near the dam also has a boat ramp. All three are excellent boat launch ramps with plenty of parking.
