Long Description:
In 1961, three years before Lake Billy Chinook was created behind Round Butte Dam, University of Oregon archaeologist Luther S. Cressman surveyed the three river canyons in the reservoir area. Of notable interest was this massive, engraved basalt boulder along the west bank of the Crooked River. Because its location would be flooded, the Crooked River Petroglyph was moved in the winter of 1963 and placed at this site, approximately one mile from its original location. The Petroglyph was found on lands ceded to the Federal Government by the Warm Springs and Wasco Indians as part of the Middle Oregon Treaty of 1855. The Petroglyph is now on lands managed by the Oregon State Parks Department.
