Cascade Lakes & Deschutes River

Sunriver Kayak

Opportunities for central Oregon fishing abound. The Cascade Lakes, the Deschutes River, Paulina and East Lakes and the Crooked River provide almost endless opportunities for the avid angler. These waters also provide a playground for whitewater kayaking, flatwater kayaking and canoeing, standup paddleboarding, windsurfing and sailboating.


Group Tours

Organizations providing group tours from Sunriver include Sun Country Tours, Wanderlust Tours, our favorite the Paulina Plunge, and Central Oregon Adventures. Once you arrive at Sunriver you will have an opportunity to explore the options and find activities that fit into your schedule and meets the needs of your group.



The High Desert Museum between Sunriver and Bend is a favorite family activity. There are indoor and outdoor exhibits, a variety of wildlife exhibits and shows, and an extensive living history section with volunteers dressed in era costumes engaged in era activities. Try your hand at pioneer activities or watch a 100 year old, steam-powered saw mill with 48 inch blade in action. If you are specifically interested in central Oregon history, you will enjoy the Des Chutes Historical Museum in Bend.
