Just like any other Reservoir. I live in NW Oregon so this was no big deal to visit. Find a lake closer and you'll be glad you did.

We really enjoyed our RV spot near the lake, and our kids loved watching the geese and little chipmunks running around. The showers and bathrooms were clean, and they had firewood available (5$ a bundle). The hosts were so friendly and helpful, and we were...More

This resivor is a great place to spend the day or stay for a few days. The state park is beautiful; cabins, tents and rv’s. Nice grounds and a enjoyable place for all your water toys.

Big reservoir, not many people. Gets a bit windy by the dam in the afternoon. Good size bass and trout, lots of crappie witch is my favorite to catch. Bring a kayak or boat for a great experience at the lake.

Stunning scenery. Boating. Fishing. Cabins and traditional tent/rv camping. Hiking. Close to a variety of outdoor activities. This state park has it all, but one major distraction lowered the rating: obnoxious campers two sites away from our cabin. Their goings on began an 8 a.m....More

The hills are alive in Prineville Reservoir State Park! Brink your hiking shoes because it's very hilly. We enjoyed our stay but didn't know what to expect because I couldn't find any pictures of the cabins. The park has 5 cabins in total. 3 are...More
