This 15 mile long, 3,000 acre reservoir has an abundance of recreational opportunities. You can spend your time in the water, or explore the 40+ miles of coastline.
Fishing is available year round, with water sports and camping popular activities in the summer. Camping reservations are available for tents and RV’s with a handful of cabins for rent as well. Drive in spots are open around the reservoir as well for those who like to rough it.
There are six boat ramps on the reservoir. They include Prineville Resort, Jasper Point, Prineville Main Park, County Boat Ramp, Powder House Cove and Roberts Bay West.
Dependent on water levels, most ramps are accessible between Memorial Day and Labor day.
