Ochoco Lake Campground, as the name suggests, is located on the shores of Ochoco Reservoir - 7 miles east of Prineville. The reservoir was created after WWI for irrigation and flood control. Today it is still heavily used for farm irrigation, and water levels can vary significantly from spring to fall. Ochoco Lake Campground does offer a boat ramp for those looking to get on the water and fish. The ramp is open to campers and non campers alike. There are also day use areas available near the campground.

Ochoco Lake Campground offers a variety of campsites including regular tent/trailer sites, walk in sites, a hiker and biker area, and Teepee sites. Campsites are on the small side and large RVs are not recommended. Picnic tables and fire rings are found at each campsite. Drinking water and restrooms with showers are found within the campground. Firewood and ice may also be purchased from the camp host.

Ochoco Lake Campground is open seasonally, usually April through October, and reservations can be made in advance by clicking here.
