One of Eastern Oregon's most popular fishing spots, man-made Chickahominy Reservoir was first stocked with rainbow trout in the summer of 1967. It is still stocked once or twice a year with fingerlings and legal-size fish. The water level fluctuates with the amount of spring run-off and can be low at times, affecting the availability of fisheries. The recreation site offers 28 campsites, a fish cleaning station, drinking water, vault restrooms and a boat ramp. The extensive valley where Chickahominy Reservoir lies is surrounded by foothills, distant buttes and rough ridges - a landscape that provides far-reaching views of the open high desert country.

We arrived here in late November...stayed two nights. Beautiful. The night went down to 18° and we were the only ones here. Beautiful spot. The campsites are nicely spaced apart and all have a fire ring and a picnic table. The other reviewer did a perfect job describing this place. Check it out.
We stayed one night here, and it was amazingly peaceful and quiet. We expected dispersed camping, but were pleasantly surprised by the campsites. No hookups, but a picnic table and grill/firepit were at every campsite. Pit toilet buildings were located in several areas. Sites were semicircular with…
This campground is right by a reservoir but not much mosquitos. The ground is hard which made putting the stakes in the ground difficult. Vault toilets but clean. Beautiful sunset.
