Prineville is located in the high desert region of Crook County, northeast of Bend and east of Redmond along Highway 126. It is approximately 3 hours from Portland, Salem and Eugene. Prineville is the oldest community in Central Oregon, established in 1868. Visitors to this pristine town will discover a myriad of things to do. There are eleven parks that span over 100 acres in the Crook County Parks and Recreation District. A hiking/biking path runs east-west, spanning 2.5 miles through the center of town and through Ochoco Creek Park. The Prineville Reservoir State Park offers boating, swimming, fishing, camping and picnicking and Ochoco Reservoir has additional fishing and camping. The Lower Crooked River, which has been designated a National Wild and Scenic River is just minutes from Prineville. Central Oregon is a rockhounding paradise and Prineville boasts the nickname of "Rockhound Capital of the United States." The Prineville Chamber of Commerce offers visitors a complimentary Rockhound Map that is a guide to the rockhounding sites, giving road directions using landmarks, identifying and showing the local rock materials found at each site. There are also safety tips and historic and geologic information included in the map. Golf is also available at the Meadow Lakes public green and the Prineville Golf & Country Club offers private memberships. The town of Prineville is home to an eclectic group of antique stores and art galleries and dining is everything from steaks and American home-style cooking to Chinese and Mexican.
