Not much choice of access for shore divers. Went by the boat ramps. Mountain lake diving in the heart of Eastern Oregon. Much of the lake is within a deep canyon.

For access to the reservoir, drive on US 20/26 from Caldwell to Nyssa, Oregon and drive South on Oregon 201 South to 2 miles North of Adrian. Turn at the sign for Owyhee Lake State Park. Follow the signs about 25 miles to the Reservoir.

Stop after the dive at a hot springs for a warming soak. On the way in or on the way out of the canyon.
