Thanks for visiting our site.  Reservations for the 2017 Season will open on January 1st, 2017. 


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 general store and tackle shop are on site for those 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.  Brown Trout, Kokanee, and Rainbow Trout are available for harvest throughout the season.

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.

Thanks to all of our  customers for an incredible 2016 season. Some of our guests have been coming back to East Lake for 50 years! Thank you for making us your summer home.

This Fall we have completely updated Mallard and have refreshed the exterior paint on several other cabins. We have also been busy modernizing some our oldest and most problematic plumbing.

We’ve had some beautiful Summer-like days this Fall with clear skies and temperatures into the 60’s. There have also been some wet days resulting in a lake level rise of about a foot. Either way, fishermen have enjoyed success into October and early November when they have had the lake to themselves.

We look forward to hosting you again next Summer when the hatches begin again. Unplug and recharge at East Lake Resort in 2017!

Bruce, Rob, and Sandy
