Cold Springs Dam and Reservoir are features of the Umatilla Project. The dam was completed in 1908. The reservoir covers 1,600 acres with 12 miles of shoreline and is a national wildlife refuge heavily used by migrating waterfowl. Some 275 acres of the reservoir area have been designed as public hunting grounds. Bank fishing for crappie, smallmouth bass, and brown bullhead permitted from the Inlet Canal and along Cold Springs Dam.
Site is located about 7 miles east of Hermiston, Oregon off State Road 207.
