AAA Editor Notes
Lake Owyhee State Park is reached by SR 201 and a county road winding through 10 miles of erosion-sculpted canyons along the Owyhee River. The lake provides 53 miles of scenic, canyon-skirted waterway. Along the lake's eastern shore, the red-tinted cliffs of Succor Creek Canyon rise 1,000 feet above water level.
McCormack and Indian Creek campgrounds are on the Lake Owyhee Reservoir just above the dam. East of Lake Owyhee is Succor Creek State Natural Area, which is popular with rock hounds.
Please be advised that while the road to the Lake Owyhee area is scenic, it is also winding and narrow. The climb to the reservoir is moderately steep. Inquire about road conditions before entering the canyon; drive cautiously and yield to oncoming traffic. Boat ramps are available. Fishing is permitted.
Pets on leash are allowed. Camping is permitted. Picnicking is permitted.
