Visitor Centers

The Lava Lands Visitor Center is just a short distance north of Sunriver toward Bend. The Visitor Center showcases local geology, ecology, climate and culture. The hands on Center and interpretive trials provide a variety of activities for a wide range of ages and interest levels. You can drive to the top of Lava Butte that rises 500 feet above the Visitor Center and provides a panoramic view of central Oregon and the volcanic peaks of the Cascade Range to the west. The Lava River Cave and Paulina Visitor Center are additional attractions of the Newberry National Volcanic Monument.
