There are a lot of attractions that bring thousands of visitors to Central
Oregon each year. Three hundred days of sunshine annually is just one of them. Renew your vitality with endless possibilities including world famous golf at more than 25 unique courses or envied fly fishing at over 150 rivers and lakes. Outdoor adventures include hiking, rock climbing at Smith Rock and white-water rafting. With an abundance of fresh powder in winter, the high desert country of Central Oregon is an ideal playground for the outdoor sports enthusiast.
Experience Central Oregon's many attractions that draw strength and character from its majestic peaks and vistas. From lava beds and towering mountains to sheer cliff walls and raging rivers, Central Oregon screams "extreme sports!" The seasonal snow that envelops the Cascade Range melts into the rivers and lakes below. White-water rafters and kayakers head to the lower Deschutes river, famous for
its roll out rapids and rugged scenery. This 252-mile long river is renowned for its stock of large trout and is a favorite among anglers.
The Deschutes National Forest and surrounding wilderness areas offer limitless opportunities for hiking, biking, camping, horseback riding, and fishing. Mt. Bachelor’s powdery slopes provide world-class snowboarding and skiing, groomed Nordic trails for cross country skiing, dog-sled rides, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. To top off your High Desert excursion, ascend the challenging summit of Smith Rock and trek along the world's largest obsidian flow at Newberry Volcanic Monument.
When you catch your breath from the Central Oregon activities - fishing, golfing and skiing, etc. - take a moment and study pioneers’ past at Deschutes Historical Museum. Experience life as it was in 1904 at the Miller Family Ranch and Sawmill. Explore the physically interactive outdoor experimental exhibit or take a walk through time in the "Spirit of the West" exhibit at the renowned High Desert Museum.
The High Desert region boasts an equally impressive selection of restaurants and breweries, a dynamic nightlife, unique lodging and a thriving arts scene. Sample the region’s bounty, sip some ale at a local microbrewery, browse through galleries, shop till you drop at the historic Old Mill District and relax alongside Mirror Pond at Drake Park.
Whether you stay in Bend, Sisters, Redmond, Madras, Prineville or surrounding areas, they all offer diverse lodging under the sunny
skies of the High Desert. Enjoy accommodations from rustic cabins to scenic RV spots or your "home away from home" local house rental. Luxury resorts such as Black Butte Ranch, Eagle Crest, Seventh Mountain Resort, and Sunriver Resort are all in close proximity and all of them just minutes away from your next adventure.
So come visit, enjoy, and share a piece of Central Oregon.
