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.

Sunny with a high of 73 this Fourth of July this weekend at East Lake Resort.

We have seen an upsurge in the amount of German brown, Kokanee and Rainbow trout in the last few weeks. Jigging by the caldera drop off has been a hot spot for expert and first-time fishermen alike. Kokanee have been very aggressive as of late with some 18-20 inch catches being pulled to the boat last week.

When fishing gets tough you can always relax at the Blue Duck Grill. Enjoy the many flavors of food we serve at the Blue Duck Grill which includes Burgers, hot sandwiches and a new addition, the salmon fillet. All of our beef is local from Barley Beef in Prineville, Oregon

We will be serving our special pulled pork sandwich and our smoked pork on a bun with beans and coleslaw for $12.00 from 11am to 7pm. This weekend only! Starting Friday until Saturday we will be serving prime rib at the Blue Duck from 5pm to 7pm.
