City of Prineville Real Estate
The city of Prineville, located in Crook County, sits approximately 35 miles Northeast of Bend and a quick 20 miles East of Redmond. Prineville offers its residents a true small town feel, a business friendly environment, and abundant outdoor activities for all ages.
Just 14 miles Southeast of Prineville set in the high desert hills is the Prineville Reservoir. Fishing in the reservoir is quite popular with Central Oregonians. Rainbow and cutthroat trout can be found year-round, if you’re up for ice fishing in the winter. Other species to look for are large mouth bass, catfish, crappie and crayfish. Because there is no speed limit on the lake, water sports such as water skiing, wake boarding, and tubing are very popular. There is a marina with a boat ramp and campgrounds with RV hookups so you can stay and enjoy all the reservoir has to offer.
Not looking to boat or fish? Head over to Meadow Lakes Golf Course for a round of golf on the course the Bend Bulletin says is “one of Central Oregon’s best golf values”. Families may also be interested in local Rock Hounding activities. Prineville claims the unofficial title of Rock Hound Capital of the United States!

Respected housing developers have built beautiful neighborhoods and positioned their investments to keep up with the perceived future growth of retirees seeking peaceful rural life and young families looking for affordable homes in Prineville.
