We will meet in the Rite Aid parking lot at 11:30 and caravan to our picnic spot. There are 12 campgrounds on the Crooked River south of Prineville.
Last year, the picnic was at the first spot, Castle Rock.
This year the last spot has been selected, Big Bend. It's the last campground before Bowman Dam. Go south on Main (which turns into hwy 27). At the CC Fairgrounds, it's just under 19 miles, so if you want to clock the mileage, start at the fairgrounds.
There is lots of parking, the restrooms were clean when we checked, and the scenery is incredible. The canyon walls rise nearly straight up; it's spectacular...
Bring your picnic lunch; this is not a potluck. Bring binoculars and fly-fishing equipment if you like. Lots of opportunities !
