WELCOME TO EAST LAKE RESORT – “The Unique Oregon Experience”

In 1915, East Lake Resort opened its doors on the shores of East Lake in the caldera of Newberry Volcano – the largest volcano in the Cascade Range. Rebuilt in 1942, our current resort is a full service facility 45 miles southeast of Bend, Oregon. Our remoteness gives you the chance to unplug and unwind  in the heart of one of Central Oregon’s most scenic regions.

Classic cabins, tent sites, RV sites and watercraft (from paddle boards to pontoons and fishing boats) are available for rent.  The Blue Duck Grill provides a relaxing atmosphere for a pub style meal. The on-site general store and tackle shop will take care of your last minute camping and fishing needs. The gift shop gives guests an opportunity to shop for a unique gift or clothing item.

The 1050 acre lake, at 6,400 feet altitude, is known as one of the finest lake fisheries in Oregon as featured in BestFishingInAmerica.com.  Brown Trout, Kokanee, and Rainbow Trout are available for harvest throughout the season.

Grant McOmie’s “Travel Oregon” and Brian Jennings “Great Outdoors” travel shows have featured the history, scenery and fishing of the Newberry Caldera and East Lake.

Bruce Bronson and Rob and Sandy Morrison have owned the resort since March 2014 and welcome you to spend a few hours or few days enjoying the unique Oregon experience.

East Lake Resort is in full operation for the summer with a full service restaurant, expanded General Store/Tackle Shop and a marina with a vast selection of rental boats and personal watercraft.  Limited bookings are available at the RV Park and rental cabins for July with greater availability in August and September.

After a cool and wet June, the weather has turned mild with warm dry days and cool comfortable nights.  Fishing continues to be good with catches of Kokanee using an East Lake Special or Jigging while Rainbows are being caught via bait or fly fishing.  Reports of Brown Trout catches have been reported in shallow water.

Fire restrictions begin Tuesday night at midnight but fires are still permitted in a USFS approved fire pit.

We look forward to seeing you for your Summer vacation or just a short day visit.
