Lake Owyhee State Park is a remote oasis catering to camping and boating on the shore of a scenic desert canyon reservoir.
Owyhee Reservoir is a 53-mile-long lake, filling a narrow, deep canyon brimming with colorful volcanic rock formations. Many boaters return year after year to explore the desert canyon and rugged mountains. Some of the geology is visible only by boat. Anglers are awarded with excellent warm water catches, especially for largemouth bass, white and black crappie. The reservoir also has catfish and is occasionally stocked with rainbow trout. The Indian Creek campground and the Gordon Gulch Day-use area have boat ramps. Another ramp is near the dam. Marine fuel, firewood and ice are available for sale.
