Things To Do

Overview

Bully Creek Dam and Reservoir (Vale Project) are on the Bully Creek about 8 miles northwest of the Creek's confluence with the Malheur River. The reservoir is 985 surface acres with 7 miles of shoreline. There is paved access to the dam. The park is operated from April 15th through November 15th (weather permitting).

Forested areas at the reservoir provide opportunities for viewing migrating birds. The reservoir is used as a resting place by migratory waterfowl with some ducks remaining to nest. In the spring, fall, and winter you may see loons, grebes, ducks, and hawks. Nearby a red rock formation sometimes harbors Rock Wrens and Golden Eagles.

Available fish species include smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, rainbow, and black crappie. Sparse vegetative cover of sagebrush and grass provides habitat for small mammals and birds.
