Ochoco NF-Ochoco West - Prineville Area


The western portion of the Ochoco National Forest offers a great variety of recreational opportunities without being too far removed from the nearest town. 

In the winter, there are opportunities for snow play including a Mark's Creek Sled Hill and numerous trails for snowmobiles and cross country skiers. 

In the summer there is everything from fishing to backpacking in Mill Creek Wilderness and the surrounding forest! 

If those activities don't suit your style, there are also OHV trails, developed campgrounds, group pavilions, and overnight rental options for two historic cabins. 

Nearly everything you are looking for is available here!
