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.

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
