Sunriver, Oregon

Nestled next to the Deschutes River on 3,300 acres of pristine high desert, lush meadows, and beautiful pine forests, Sunriver, Oregon is the premier Northwest destination for vacationers, golfers, and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. With the Cascade Mountains to the west and the Newberry Volcanic National Monument to the east, Sunriver boasts an exciting array of world class amenities such as golf, tennis, swimming, horseback riding, kayaking, canoeing, whitewater rafting, fly fishing, biking, hiking, bird watching, spa and fitness centers, music and art festivals, and a variety of restaurants from fine dining to casual.

In the summer, the Sunriver Village is the place to dine, shop, and mingle, with activities for the whole family ranging from mini-golf, bumper cars, train rides and bounce houses. Just a short drive away, the High Desert Museum offers an interactive experience, complete with birds of prey, otters, porcupines, a bobcat, and living history. A 20 minute drive away, the Mt. Bachelor Bike Park features more than 10 miles of excavated and single-track trails. Mt. Bachelor’s Disc Golf course is a PDGA listed course. Ride the Pine Marten chair up to hole #1 and work your way down the mountain to the final hole #18. Elevation and the varied terrain add extra elements to your game!

The towns and unique regions that make up Central Oregon—Bend, Sisters, Madras, Redmond, LaPine and others—are bursting with high desert and mountain culture and ideas. Dubbed the “outdoor playground of the West” for a thousand good reasons, Bend is world famous for both its outdoor pursuits and pristine beauty. You can catch an art exhibit, dine at an award-winning restaurant, spoil yourself at one of many spas, or trek the legendary Bend Ale Trail, the largest beer trail in the west. Bend makes a great spot for family-friendly fun as well, from floating the river through the Old Mill District to canoe tours under the stars at one of the many Cascade Lakes.
