The Seven Wonders of Oregon

One of the best things about staying at Sunriver Resort is being centrally located to unlimited recreational activities and attractions around Oregon. Travel Oregon recently released a list of Oregon's Seven Wonders. The full list includes Mt. Hood, The Oregon Coast, The Columbia River Gorge, Painted Hills, Smith Rock, The Wallowas and Crater Lake. Here in Sunriver, we are a quick day trip from three of The Seven Wonders of Oregon.

Smith Rock State Park
Just 45 minutes to the north of Sunriver Resort is a top climbing and hiking destination for people from all over the world. It is rumored that the modern day sport of Rock Climbing originated at Smith Rock State Park. The sheer cliffs and towering rocks are a sight that you have to see with your own eyes, trust us!

Crater Lake National Park
Just an hour and a half south of Sunriver Resort is the awe inspiring Crater Lake. Crater Lake was formed when Mount Mazama erupted 7,700 years ago, the eruption caused the mountain to collapse forming a crater in place of the peak. Over time snow and rain has filled the deep crater with crystal clear blue water, unlike what can be found anywhere else in the world. The lake is 1,943 feet deep, making it the deepest lake in the United States and the ninth deepest lake in the world.

Painted Hills
Just two hours to the east of Sunriver Resort is the Painted Hills unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. The painted hills were formed when the area was an ancient river floodplain. The black color is lignite, the grey color is mudstone, siltstone and shale and the red coloring is laterite soil. The colors come together to create a natural sight that looks straight out of a painting.
