Know Before You Go:
- Open year-round for day-use only.
- Potable water is available year-round at Chimney Rock Campground, 2.1 miles miles west (upriver) on State Highway 27.
- Cell phone service is not available at the site.
- Watch for bicyclists: the section of State Highway 27 between Prineville and Bowman Dam is designated as the Crooked River Canyon Scenic Bikeway.
Point of Interest:
The views from this straight stretch of the Crooked River are dominated by near vertical cliff walls; photographers favor the site during the hours when low-angle lighting highlight the brilliant textures of the basaltic lava flows high above the river.
