Scenic beauty, camping and water recreation at its finest in the High Desert.  Mountain waters flowing out of the Ochoco Mountain Range join to form the Crooked River. The river, confined by its canyon and the Bowman Dam, forms the 15-mile long, 3,000-acre Prineville Reservoir.  With two developed campgrounds and numerous primitive camps along its 43-mile shoreline, recreational opportunities are plentiful.

The fishing can be good anytime at Prineville Reservoir. The lake supports rainbow trout, small and largemouth bass, catfish, crappie, and crayfish. The trout fishing experience is year-round, with the biggest fish being caught during the winter months either by boat or from the shore.  The bass, catfish and crappie fishing is best between May and October.

Other recreational activities include waterskiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, star gazing and wildlife viewing.

There are numerous year round camping opportunities within the state park on the reservoir.  In the developed areas there are deluxe cabins with full amenities, full hook up RV sites and tent sites.  Flush toilets and hot showers are also available.  For those who like to rough it, there are many primitive drive in and boat in campsites around the reservoir as well.
