The Prineville Reservoir is 15-miles long and over 3,000-acres. Scenic beauty, camping and water recreation at its finest in the High Desert. With developed campgrounds and numerous primitive camps along its 43-mile shoreline, recreational opportunities are plentiful. There are rock formations along the road leading in to the Reservoir, with small pull outs for images to be taken (usually not large enough for production vehicles).
For fishing shoots there is 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.
The rock climbing around the lake is stunning and offers beautiful visuals.
