Welcome

Welcome to Sunriver

ithin this magazine, the Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce has tried to capture the qualities, activities and all of those things that make our community such as special place in the world. We know, however, that you can only truly get to know Sunriver by visiting here. Let’s start with the weather. Sunriver enjoys Central Oregon’s high desert climate with about 300 days a year of sunshine. But what makes Sunriver so comfortable are the warm summer days followed by the cool evenings and nights — naturally air conditioning your home by just opening your windows! The winter months are special as well as the snow provides a beautiful white blanket over the trees and ground, providing for Nordic skiing and snowshoeing from your front door. That same dry, eastern Oregon mountain snowfall followed soon by sunshine makes for a “Bluebird” day of skiing at nearby Mt. Bachelor. The original Sunriver resort planners knew early on that

2020-21 | SUNRIVER MAGAZINE

Sunriver’s climate and natural setting provided the ideal opportunity to create one of the first developments to integrate environmental engineering and design into a resort community. More than 50 years ago, they recognized that nature and wildlife in Sunriver are just as important as everyday comforts. Today, visitors will still find that, despite the more than 4,000 homes located here, it’s very dark in Sunriver at night. That’s by design, so that from your deck or balcony, or through a telescope at the Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory, the stars fill the night sky. During the day, Sunriver is alive with outdoor activities, recreation and sports that again go hand-in-hand with our natural setting. Families build memories for a lifetime on bike rides along the more than 34 miles of paved biking and walking paths that wind through trees and meadows throughout the Sunriver community. A new network of hiking and mountain biking trails on dirt and gravel are also now open in the forest just across Cardinal Landing Bridge.


The Deschutes River, which gracefully flows along Sunriver’s western border, provides floating, fishing and wildlife viewing opportunities. Just a short drive away are dozens of Alpine lakes, Lava Lands Visitor Center, and the Newberry National Volcanic Monument. Sunriver also boasts fun-filled human-made recreational facilities that blend naturally into the Central Oregon high desert. For families, the Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center (SHARC), located in the center of Sunriver, features indoor and outdoor aquatics, including a variety of pools and water slides. Golfers will be challenged by the world-class courses in Sunriver and surrounding area. Tennis courts are located throughout Sunriver, and the growing sport of pickleball has dedicated courts at Fort Rock Park. All of this activity naturally leads to a healthy appetite, so Sunriver has everything you’re looking for with a wide selection of dining options in The Village at Sunriver, Sunriver Resort, Sunriver Business Park and Spring River Plaza.

A choice of accommodations in Sunriver is just as wide. Many families choose from hundreds of fully furnished vacation homes for rent, many of which include a garage full of bikes and a hot tub on the deck. Renting multiple homes on the same street for family reunions and other gatherings is also common. Many condominium, townhome and guestroom rental options are also available from the Sunriver Resort and property management companies. For those considering Sunriver as a permanent home or business location, we recommend doing what many residents have done first — enjoy Sunriver as a visitor or vacation home owner. It won’t be long before you’ve made a decision about moving here. The Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce can make your vacation or move here that magical experience that so many have had. Please drop by our office located in the Sunriver Business Park at 56825 Venture Lane, Suite 110 or call us 541-593-8149. sunriverchamber.com 2020-21 | SunriverChamber.com

Getting Here

S

unriver is tucked away in the towering ponderosa pines of Central Oregon, located about 18 minutes south of Bend via Highway 97, about halfway between Bend and La Pine. Traveling by air to the heart of Central Oregon is a breeze! Redmond’s Municipal Airport (RDM) is Central Oregon’s premiere commercial and general aviation airport, and is only 34 miles away from Sunriver. Air service is provided by American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, United and Delta serving the cities of Denver, Los Angeles, Portland, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Seattle and Phoenix. Ground transportation to and from the airport is abundant and includes six on-site car rental agencies as well as town car, limousine and taxi service. The airport

Welcome provides exceptionally convenient parking located close to the terminal with low parking rates. If you choose to drive to Sunriver, it’s about a half-day trip from Portland, Oregon (180 miles) and will take close to a full day from Boise, Idaho (318 miles), San Francisco, California (480 miles) and Seattle, Washington (345 miles). In the winter, be prepared for snow, and keep an eye on road conditions.

Sunriver History

T

oday, Sunriver is best known as one of the country’s premier vacation spots for families and a community enjoyed by local residents for its recreational amenities and natural surroundings. Many are amazed that the original vision for Sunriver — going back 50 years now — lives on with homesites, lodging and commercial activity blending easily into the forests and meadows, while framed by the majestic Deschutes River. How did Sunriver get to this point? The history of Sunriver takes some fascinating twists and turns along the way before becoming the prized vacation and residential resort it is today. Nearly 7,000 years ago lava flows dammed the Deschutes River at Benham Falls, backing up a lake that covered much of what is now Sunriver. When the river finally broke through and the lake receded, a lush meadow surrounded by thick forests was left behind. The area was a natural gathering spot for Native Americans based on numerous artifacts found in the area dating back thousands of years. During the winter of 1843, explorer John C. Fremont and guide Kit Carson ventured into the area on their way south. In 1855, the Army Corps of Topographical Engineers surveyed a route through the area for a railroad between California and the Columbia River. This party was led by Robert Stockton Williamson and Henry Larcom Abbot. Among the group were geologists, botanists, physicians, naturalists, engineers and soldiers. In the late 1800s cattlemen began to drive their herds to the area to graze in the lush meadowlands. The Vandeverts were among the first homesteaders in the area; their ranch was just south of current day Sunriver. Their children attended the Meadow School, which was located very close to the present

The entrance to Camp Abbot, a combat engineer training facility during WWII.

Sunriver Resort Lodge. During the next 50 years the area was used by the ranchers, trappers and a few hardy pioneers who settled in the area with their families. In the midst of World War II, the U.S. Government wanted to establish a combat engineer training facility on a site that resembled the climate and topography of Northern Europe. Robert Sawyer, publisher of the Bend Bulletin, persuaded the Army Corps of Engineers to build the Army training post 18 miles south of town on the Shonquist Ranch, the site of modern day Sunriver. It was named Camp Abbot. Local folks were surprised the Army found the almost 9,700 acres straddling the Deschutes River a perfect place to train soldiers. Those who helped build the camp were remembered as saying what a miserable job it was. Construction began in December 1942 and continued through the worst winter in 30 years, with more than 60 inches of snow through March 1943. Camp Abbot officially opened the following year. Training included basic combat skills, marksmanship, field maneuvers, bridge building and demolition. The camp was a self-contained city complete with water and sewer systems and housing up to 10,000 people at a time. Many of its structures were built from the surrounding timber and stone, most notably the impressive officer’s club with its high ceiling, large stone fireplace and balcony overlooking the main floor. This structure still stands today as The Great Hall. It was renovated in 1993 but maintains the feel of the original structure. Just like today, vehicles arriving at Camp Abbot passed over a railroad bridge. The first thing on their right was a medical demonstration area (now Antelope and Bobcat Lanes), with

Troops training

the post stockade just beyond. The gas chamber, where troops trained in chemical warfare defense, was near Hare and Jay Lanes. The post included a 411-bed hospital complex that stretched from the current business park to near Parkland and East Park Lanes. There were numerous training fields, barracks, dining facilities and warehouses. There was a post motor pool, coal storage area and sewage treatment plant. (Sunriver Owners Association still uses one of the sedimentary tanks, now called a round house, for maintenance work and storage.) Out in the meadow, two rifle ranges (stretching from today’s airport runway to River Road) and two machine gun ranges echoed with the sound of rapid fire. Beyond them was the anti-tank range. More than 90,000 combat engineers were trained at Camp Abbot before it abruptly closed in June 1944. In the years following WWII some of the former Camp Abbot land was returned to the U.S. Forest Service, but 5,500 acres were sold as private land. The property changed hands multiple times until 1965 when John Gray and Donald McCallum obtained the land for development, forming Sunriver Properties. It was at this point that the vision for Sunriver was realized, as John Gray said: “to create a commercial enterprise that blends into the environment without insult.” The Sunriver Lodge was constructed, as were the stables, Meadows Golf Course and an airstrip. Additionally, large areas

for residential home sites were plotted. The bike paths were created, although were originally designed for use by electric golf carts as an alternative means of transportation. Lot sales and home construction began in 1968. By the time John Gray sold the resort property to the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Company in 1974, some 600 private homes and condominiums had been built. During a severe economic recession in the 1970s, 2,200 of Sunriver’s original 5,500 acres were sold back to the U.S. Forest Service. By 1979 the number of privately owned homes had doubled to 1,200. In 1993, Sunriver Resort Limited Partnership purchased Sunriver Resort and began a capital improvement campaign that continues to this day. Now, there are more than 4,000 homes and condominiums, many of which are second homes owned by people who live up and down the West Coast, across the country and around the world. Many are available as vacation rentals and these, combined with a variety of overnight lodging facilities, host as many as 15,000 visitors a day during the sunshine-filled summer months and winter holidays. From its humble beginnings as a trapper’s rendezvous point to a World War II training area, modern day Sunriver has become a paradise for all to enjoy.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO WHEN DISASTER STRIKES? Most people want to relax, tune out and just have a good time while on vacation. No one wants to spoil the fun by having to think about the potential of a disaster but, for some communities, the threat is real. The Sunriver community is equipped with siren towers that can be used to “sound the alarm” if there is an imminent threat to the community. Sunriver’s Police and Sunriver Fire & Rescue departments, with the assistance of the Sunriver Owners Association, col-

laborated to create a campaign to better educate owners and visitors on what to do in the event of a major incident that could require an evacuation – such as a catastrophic wildfire. Sunriver’s emergency alert campaign, HEAR IT – CHECK IT – EVACUATE, includes a website and text alert system that anyone can access in the event of an emergency.

The SHARC That Loves Tourists by Sunriver Owners Association

L

uring thousands of vacationers, residents and guests through its doors each year since opening in 2012, visitors to the Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center (SHARC) report being rejuvenated by the brilliant range of activities and amenities the facility offers to all ages and interests. The vast majority of SHARC visitors come in the warmer summer months to frolic in the oversize outdoor pool, drift in the lazy river, plunge down tube and body slides, dance in the water fountains, sunbathe or watch toddlers safely play in a separate wading pool and play area. Thousands also slide down the winter tubing hill (on select dates between November and February), scramble around the playground, play hoops on the full-size basketball court, play disc golf, test their skills at bocce ball or picnic in the park. Even when the weather turns cold, SHARC’s indoor, multiuse pool continues to attract owners and visitors. Heated to a

relatively toasty 84-85 degrees, the pool’s zero entry features bubbling fountains, spinning water flower and dumping bucket to entertain youngsters and the young at heart. School-age children make themselves dizzy floating around in circles in the vortex water feature. Three adjacent lap lanes provide space for workouts, swim lessons, aquatic fitness classes and water volleyball. Aside from aquatics, SHARC’s 5,000 square foot Benham Hall (which can also be split into two smaller rooms) hosts business meetings, weddings, banquets, seminars, events and fundraisers. Access to SHARC is free to members of Sunriver Owners Association with a valid Member Preference ID, those with SROA Recreation Guest Passes and guests of vacation rental properties enrolled in SROA’s Recreation Plus Program. The general public is welcome via a daily gate fee. sunriversharc.com • 541-585-5000

Make Your Fishing Dreams Come True

C

entral Oregon is an angler’s dream with more than 100 lakes and 450 miles of pristine rivers and streams. All within an hour’s drive of Sunriver, these waters hold Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Brook Trout, Lake Trout, Bull Trout, Cutthroat Trout, native Redband Trout, Kokanee, Atlantic Salmon and Large and Smallmouth Bass. For many months out of the year in the lower Deschutes River you’ll find both Salmon and Steelhead that have made their return trip from the Pacific Ocean. Central Oregon’s crystal clear water and the abundance of natural food and insects produce beautiful and healthy fish. And the fish get big here. Trout over ten pounds are common. The state record Brown Trout is 28.5 pounds (caught at Paulina Lake, 20 minutes from Sunriver), the state record Lake Trout is 40.8 pounds (caught at Odell Lake, 45 minutes from Sunriver) and the state record Bull Trout is 23.2 pounds (caught at Lake Billy Chinook, about an hour from Sunriver).

In addition to offering the best hand tied flies for the area, they both offer fly fishing equipment, complete guide services and of course, the real answer on where and how to catch the fish. Day One Outdoors, which features family friendly pontoon boats, offers guide services for both spin fishing and fly fishing.

Sunriver Anglers Club

T

he Sunriver Anglers Club was founded in 1977 as a way for like-minded people to come together to protect the natural environment, conserve resources, educate and encourage new fishermen and women, enjoy outdoor activities and, of course, to exchange fish stories.

The Sunriver Anglers has invested the club’s energy and resources to improve sport fishing in Central Oregon, support organizations working on stabilizing water flows on the Upper Deschutes and Little Deschutes Rivers, remove invasive fish from our high lakes and partner with federal, state, county and other groups. A major mission of the club is to provide opportunities for school children to acquire basic fishing skills and learn about fish habitat, water safety and the principles of stewardship. From co-sponsoring the Kokanee Karnival to hosting hundreds of kids at Free Fishing Day, club members are committed to education. Other club missions are fulfilled by members who volunteer for a number of activities such as restoring river banks, improving fish habitats, removing Tui Chub from Oregon lakes, teaching young and beginning anglers and working with school groups. The Sunriver Anglers Club holds monthly meetings, open to the public, on subjects such as fly patterns, fly selection, winter steelhead fishing, fishing tactics and habitat restoration projects. The club hosts a variety of outings and fishing trips to nearby lakes and streams, giving members an opportunity to learn how and where to fish in our bountiful area. Experienced members are eager to share their knowledge, experience and enjoyment of angling with all levels of anglers. sunriveriveranglers.org facebook.com/SunriverAnglers

Nature’s Aquatic Adventures Await

on’t let Sunriver’s location in the Central Oregon high desert fool you. This area has an abundance of rivers and lakes to satisfy your needs for aquatic adventures. A great place to start is the Sunriver Resort’s commercial Marina for a canoe, kayak, paddle board or raft float on the Deschutes River. Plan on a couple hours for the six mile trip, ending at a takeout just above the Benham Falls Day Use Area. Here a shuttle will conveniently bring you back to the Marina. The general public and guests of the Resort must rent boats from the Marina to utilize this facility. The Sunriver Owners Association (SROA) owns a private launch and parking area next to the Marina. Access to this facility is restricted to Sunriver owners and their guests. Only those with updated Member Preference and Recreation Plus access cards issued by SROA can use this facility.

Full

Floats are available on the other parts of the Deschutes River with nearby public launching sites that include Harper Bridge, La Pine State Park, Big River and Besson Day Use Area. Please note: There are no public access points within Sunriver proper. You can rent river and lake-floating equipment from Sunriver Sports, 4 Seasons Recreational Outfitters and Sunriver Toy House Rentals. These stores can also help you with information about where to put-in and take-out, float times and shuttle information. For a thrilling whitewater adventure, contact Sun Country Raft Tours. They offer trips on the Upper Deschutes, McKenzie River, North Umpqua or Lower Deschutes River. The nearby Cascade Mountain lakes, including Elk Lake, Devils Lake and Sparks Lake, offer a wonderful opportunity to enjoy views of Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top and South Sisters. Access to these lakes and others is along the Cascade Lakes National Scenic Byway, a 66-mile historic highway. Highway 40 from Sunriver takes you to the Byway either directly or by turning off at Highway 45. You can also contact Wanderlust Tours for interpreted, guided canoe and kayak tours of the Cascade lakes. Day, evening and moonlight tours are available. Located in the caldera in Newberry National Volcanic Monument, East Lake and Paulina Lake offer a dramatic setting for a paddling adventure. Paulina Lake is also popular for fishing and pleasure boating, and you’ll find Paulina Lodge on its shores. To get to the monument and the two lakes, follow Highway 97 south from Sunriver and turn east on Road 21 just before you get to La Pine.

the Sunriver area, remember that water temperatures can be cold. A quick dunk may feel good for a few moments, but hypothermia is a real concern for anyone who can’t get out of the water. Life vests, safe boating practices, appropriate clothing, food and drinking water, sunscreen and knowing in advance the distance and float times are all an important part of fun on the water. bendpaddletrailalliance.org

Hiking Trails

T

he new Sunriver Trails network now offers spirited and fun hiking opportunities just across Cardinal Landing Bridge, near Circle 5. While designed for mountain biking, all of these trails are open to hikers and trail runners. You’ll find a variety of terrain that leads to dramatic viewpoints while surrounded by a magnificent Ponderosa Pine forest. (See the map of the Sunriver Trails on pages 28-29.) Another close-in opportunity for hiking is the Deschutes River Trail, starting at the north end of Sunriver, near Circle 7. The trail meanders through the woods for a couple miles before coming out on the banks of the Deschutes River. Keep going and this trail can take you all the way to Bend, passing Benham, Dillon and Lava Island waterfalls along the way. The Newberry National Volcanic Monument in the Deschutes National Forest, with its diversity of geologic features, offers a variety of walking and hiking opportunities. Starting at Lava Lands Visitors Center, you can enjoy interpretive walks through the massive ancient lava flow, then take a short and vigorous hike up Lava Butte. At the Newberry Caldera, located southeast of Sunriver, there are even more trails ready to be explored, from short interpretive walks to the 21mile Crater Rim trail. Sunriver provides convenient access to the Cascade Lakes National Scenic Byway. Starting in Sunriver and ending in Bend, the scenic drive offers beautiful scenery as it circles Mt. Bachelor. Along the way, hikers can take a walk around one of the many mountain lakes. You’ll also find rustic resorts equipped with convenience stores and/or restaurants as well as overnight cabins for rent. Serious hikers can leave their cars at trailheads along the highway and enjoy a more rugged backcountry experience in the nearby Three Sisters Wilderness Area. If you are hiking in the Wilderness you will need to fill out a Wilderness permit before entry and remember group sizes are limited to 12 people. The Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway is closed during the winter and usually does not open until Memorial Day weekend. To learn more about all of the local trails in the Deschutes National Forest, go to fs.usda.gov/main/Deschutes.

Newberry Country Trail

S

unriver makes a great starting point for exploring the scenic and activity-filled Newberry Country Trail. This 150-mile driving tour includes Oregon’s “other crater,” Newberry Caldera, and much more. On a map, the Newberry Country Trail looks like the shape of a cowboy boot. It’s bordered on the west by the Pacific Crest Trail/Cascades Lakes Hwy, to the east by Newberry National Volcanic Monument, to the south by the towns of Gilchrist and Crescent, and forming the “toe” to the southeast at Silver and Summer lakes. The home base for the Trail is the City of La Pine, just ten miles south of Sunriver, where you can stop in at the La Pine Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center and get all the information you’ll need for exploring Newberry Country. Along the Trail you’ll visit communities like Odell Lake and Crescent Lake, the logging towns of Crescent and Gilcrest, historic Fort Rock, and the farm and

recreation country of Christmas Valley. Further south and to the east is Silver Lake, home of the world famous Cowboy Dinner Tree restaurant, and Summer Lake Resort and Hot Springs. The Trail can be driven in three hours, however, if you stop to enjoy the destinations along the way, the trip could take several days. The scenery is diverse ranging from the Cascade Mountains and the Deschutes National Forest, to the wide open spaces of high-lake desert country, to the 9,000-foot-high Newberry Caldera, part of the National Volcanic Monument. The outdoor activities are just as diverse as the scenery. In the winter, adventure seekers and families can enjoy all levels of sports activities including skiing, snowshoeing, crosscountry skiing, snowmobiling, sledding, snowman building and winter cabins. When the snow melts in the spring, the Trail offers biking (on and off road), motorcycling, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, waterskiing, hiking, swimming, camping, rock hounding, star watching, ATVing and much more! And if you did not bring what you need to enjoy the outdoors, the area has numerous guides and outfitters who can provide you with everything you need.

Stunning Views Await on the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway

O

ne of the most beautiful drives in the entire Northwest — the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway — is conveniently located to Sunriver. True to its name, the Byway makes a loop around Mt. Bachelor and passes several mountain lakes along the way, each with its own breathtaking view of the Cascade Mountains. The peaks of Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top and the Three Sisters will seem close enough to touch as you take a relaxing stroll around the perimeter of Todd Lake or any of the other crystal-clear, pristine alpine lakes that dot

the unforgettable landscape. Many of these lakes are accessible by car only in the summer months, but there’s still fun to be had in the winter at several Sno-Parks along the way, as well as Mt. Bachelor ski resort. Be sure to stop by the Deschutes National Forest’s Welcome Station located at the junction of Century Drive and Conklin Road (Road #41). Opened in 2016, the friendly staff at the Welcome Station can offer a wealth of information for your visit, including maps, and you can purchase recreation passes.

Directions from Sunriver To access the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway, take Forest Service Road #40 (South Century Drive, then Spring River Road) headed west, then after several miles turn right onto Road #46 headed north. Take in all the beautiful scenery as you pass access points to Lava Lake, Hosmer Lake, Elk Lake, Sparks Lake, Devils Lake and Todd Lake, finally arriving at Mt.

Bachelor. Just past Mt. Bachelor you can head back to Sunriver on Road #45, or continue to follow Road #46 to Bend. In the winter, the Byway is closed at the intersection of Road #40 and Road #45. But you can still access Mt. Bachelor via Road #45 and the Sno-Parks on the section of Road #46 from Mt. Bachelor to Bend.

Newberry National Volcanic Monument

Preserves Area’s Dramatic Eruptive History

S

unriver is uniquely situated near the spectacular Newberry National Volcanic Monument, consisting of more than 50,000 acres of beautiful lakes, stunning lava flows and out-of-this-world geologic features. A great place to start your exploration of the Monument is at Lava Lands Visitor Center, just north on Highway 97, or ride your bike there from Sunriver on the paved Sun-Lava Trail. At the Visitor Center you can view a 3D map of the entire Monument and learn about its eruptive history — beginning 400,000 years ago! Over the centuries the volcanic activity has created massive lava flows covering 1,200 square miles, dozens of lava tubes and more than 400 cinder cones. The Visitor Center offers daily educational films, easy hikes on the Trail of Molten Lands and the Trail of Whispering Pines, picnics among the trees, ranger interpretive talks, and a hike, drive or bus ride to the top of Lava Butte — the site of an active fire lookout tower. Just a short drive from the Visitor Center is the Lava River Cave. An ancient lava tunnel about a mile long, the cave is open seasonally. For more information, see the adjoining article and ask at the Visitor Center about the schedule. Make the next stop on your National Volcanic Monument tour the Newberry Caldera, located just southeast of Sunriver. Again follow Highway 97, this time south to the turnoff on County Road 21 just before La Pine. Within the Newberry Caldera, you’ll find the picturesque Paulina Lake and East Lake. This area offers a wealth of recreational opportunities, including fishing, kayaking, hiking and mountain biking. One of the most popular walks in Newberry Caldera is in the Big Obsidian Flow. A trail through the Flow covers about seven-tenths of a mile in a loop. While it’s an easy trail, you still must take care not to wander off. Obsidian, while beautiful, is a volcanic glass with sharp edges. Best to wear closed shoes and dogs are not allowed for safety reasons. The entire trail takes about an hour to walk and includes interpretive signs. Another must-see spot is Paulina Peak (elevation 7,985 feet), where you can view the Cascades, Newberry Caldera and see across the Central Oregon High Desert. You can either hike to Paulina Peak or drive up to the top in the spring and fall. The hike from the Paulina Peak Trailhead is two miles each way, out and back. Cars are not allowed to drive all the way up to the Paulina Peak summit in summer. Your visit to the Newberry National Volcanic Monument would not be complete without hiking the Lava Cast Forest. To get there, follow the main entrance road to Sunriver east onto unpaved Forest Service Road 9720 for almost ten miles to a parking area. The Lava Cast Forest got its name from the trees that became encased in stone by a 6,000-year-old lava flow. What remained were casts of the trees, creating large holes that go several feet below the surface. Visitors can view these tree molds within the lava flow on a paved, one-mile interpretive trail. And enjoy the beautiful native flowers breathing new life into this ancient land of lava! fs.usda.gov

Exploring Underground Lava Caves

I

f you and your family want a unique experience, or just a place to cool off on a hot summer day, be sure to set aside an afternoon to explore the Lava River Cave near Sunriver. This is another key feature in the Newberry Volcanic National Monument. An ancient lava tunnel about a mile long and up to 50 feet wide in places, the Lava River Cave has three ecosystems: the warm, dry climate just outside the entrance; the warm, moist microclimate at the entrance and the cool, moist, dark environment inside the cave itself. Using a lantern, you can take a self-guided tour of the Lava River Cave. (At least two light sources are recommended) It takes about an hour and a half to tour the entire cave. Initial access descends 55 stairs to a combination of flat boardwalk, uneven surfaces and stairways. The cave temperature is a constant 42 degrees. Dress warmly, even in the summer! The cave is open seasonally, so check with the Lava Lands Visitors Center to find out the latest schedule. Lantern rentals are available for $5 until 4pm. fs.fed.us/r6/centraloregon/newberrynvm/dayuse 541-593-2421 Photo by Chad Copeland

Sunriver Offers World-Class Tennis

S

unriver, offering an abundance of courts, sunshine and fresh air, continues to rank high on the lists of destination tennis resorts. In 2019, Sunriver once again made the grade in Tennis Resorts Online Top 75 resorts in the world. It’s no wonder Sunriver has become Central Oregon’s “Tennis Town” boasting 20-plus outdoor courts. Most of the activity can be found at the North Courts next to Woodlands Golf Course and Tennis Hill, adjacent to Fort Rock Park. Smaller court complexes nestled within the pines dot the community, creating a private court experience. Neighborhood courts, available first to Sunriver Owners Association (SROA) members, can be found at Meadow Village, Ranch Cabins and Cottonwood. Condominium courts, available to condo owners and guests, are located at Quelah Condos, Stoneridge Condos, The Pines, Alberello Condos and North Course Estates.

Recreation

The SROA continues to rebuild many of its existing courts when needed, which proves to be quite a draw for state and national tennis tournaments. SROA’s Sunriver Tennis programs are coordinated by a certified tennis pro and seasoned staff. Reservations are required for the use of SROA-owned tennis courts. You can rent a ball hopper and of other equipment at Tennis Hill. Tennis Sunriver also offers a variety of clinics and lessons between June and September. For information call 541-593-5707 or go to sunrivertennis.com. Owned and managed by Sunriver Resort, Sage Springs Club & Spa features Sunriver’s only indoor courts, and are open to resort guests and club members. The Resort also maintains four outdoor courts across the street from Sage Springs. The courts are available to Resort guests and the general public for a fee. Lessons and clinics are also offered from certified tennis professionals. Visit sunriverresort. com or call 541-593-7890 for information.

Pickleball’s Popularity Grows by Leaps & Bounds

T

he name “pickleball” may seem funny, but people in Sunriver are serious about their enthusiasm for this rapidly growing sport. Pickleball combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong into an exhilarating game that’s easy to learn, while still making for a fast-paced, competitive test of skill. A fun social sport, pickleball is commonly played in doubles format with singles play also popular. And, it’s great exercise for the whole family. No wonder then that the popularity of pickleball has grown by leaps and bounds since 2012, when it was first played in an organized fashion in Sunriver. Now, six outdoor pickleball courts are available by reservation from Sunriver Owners Association at Fort Rock Park. For information about court reservations, clinics and lessons, go to sunrivertennis.com and click on the Pickleball page. Also, an active Pickleball Club in Sunriver plays three times a week. The Club, which has grown to about 200 members, encourages participation by players from all skill levels. While the play is competitive, the focus is on having fun. Along with the regular playing schedule, the Club hosts a tournament for members in August and a Club BBQ at the end of the season. Sage Springs Tennis & Spa in Sunriver offers pickleball yearround on six indoor courts that

are converted over from tennis courts. Pickleball mixers are offered each week open to members and non-members. Experienced professionals provide lessons to all levels of players with an emphasis on introducing the game to new players, including those visiting Sunriver who want to try pickleball for the first time. Pickleball is now played around the world, and no doubt will continue to gain popularity in Sunriver. It’s all pretty amazing considering the sport was invented more than 50 years ago when three dads from Bainbridge Island, Washington wanted to create an activity to keep their kids busy during summer vacation. And its funny name? One legend has it that the sport was named after a family dog — Pickles — who would chase after the plastic ball. The millions of humans who now play the game can relate.

Family Fun on the Paved Pathways of Sunriver

G

roup bike rides and walks on the more than 34 miles of paved pathways in Sunriver provide one of the most memorable experiences for families visiting here. These wide, user-friendly trails go around the golf courses, under roads, through pine forests, along the Deschutes River, and across scenic meadows. Pathway maps, including rules, are available at the local bike shops and from kiosks along the pathways and roads. The pathways are clearly marked on Sunriver maps. If you think you are lost, just travel a little farther, and you’ll soon come to a kiosk or intersection where signs will point you in the right direction. On your ride or walk, learn all about Sunriver from the 20 interpretive signs along the pathways (see adjoining article). In addition to the asphalt pathways through Sunriver, the 5.5mile Sun-Lava multi-use paved pathway connects to the Lava Lands Visitor Center. Starting at a well-marked trailhead near Circle 7, the pathway is ten-feet wide with nice views, gradual curves and slopes, and is a joy to navigate. Riding a bike or walking through the majestic ponderosa pines creates a sense of freedom from not having to drive to reach special places. The Sun-Lava pathway features mileage markers and intersection signage to help users navigate to their intended destination. Sun-Lava will also lead you to the Benham Falls East

Day Use Area on the bank of the Deschutes River. From there, pedestrians and cyclists can cross the river on a wooden bridge and proceed downstream about a quarter mile on a wide dirt trail to the spectacular Benham Falls. Just about all uses — hiking, biking, roller skating, skateboards and wheelchairs — are permitted on the Sun-Lava pathway. The pathway is not plowed in winter, providing a delightful and wellmarked cross-country ski trail. Please observe signage in Sunriver where different rules (no roller skates or skateboards in Sunriver due to higher volumes of traffic) apply. Also, for your safety, bicycles must be walked through pathway tunnels, unless noted otherwise. You can also use the paved pathways in Sunriver to reach the new Sunriver Trails located just across Cardinal Landing Bridge. The Sunriver Trails offer miles of dirt and gravel paths for mountain biking, hiking and trail running. Since there is no parking on residential streets near Cardinal Landing Bridge, the paved pathways offer one of the best ways to access the Sunriver Trails. Many rental homes come equipped with bikes, but if they aren’t included and you didn’t bring your own, there are local bike rental shops where you can rent every conceivable kind of bicycle and accessory including toddler trailers, tandem and recumbent bikes. You can leave the car at home in Sunriver! 4 Seasons Recreational Outfitters 541-593-2255 4sro.com Bike Barn 541-593-3721 sunriver-resort.com Sunriver Sports 541-593-8369 sunriversports.com Village Bike & Ski 541-593-2453 villagebikeandski.com

Interpretive Trail Signs A

re you goal oriented? Assign yourself or your entire family a mission one day to really discover Sunriver. You can learn more than you ever wanted to know about Sunriver by visiting each of the 20 interpretive trail signs on the pathways. The Sunriver Anglers Club created the signs to showcase Sunriver’s geology, history, ecology, flora and fauna. The majority of the interpretive signs are on the loop around the Great Meadow. All are marked on the community maps found in roadside and pathway kiosks. Whether on foot, bike or horse, it’s worth a stop when you come upon these learning opportunities.

Mountain Bikers

N

ew mountain biking trails, some still under development, in the forest just west of Sunriver offer adventure for every skill level. From challenging single track to a family-friendly gravel path along the Deschutes River, the Sunriver Trails are just a short pedal away across Cardinal Landing Bridge. These new trails are being built by local volunteers from the Central Oregon Trail Alliance, which, for the past 25 years, has turned this region into the mountain biking mecca it is today. The Sunriver Trails will connect with the larger network of single track west of Bend, including the Wanoga complex and Phil’s Trails. But already, riders of the Sunriver Trails can enjoy miles of new fun and fast terrain that lead to scenic overlooks and through beautiful forest land. The best way to access these trails from Sunriver is to use the paved pathways that lead to Cardinal Landing Bridge, since parking is not allowed on residential streets near the bridge. The Sunriver Trails also will be used by hikers and trail runners, so please take care around other trail users. Many other riding options are available to mountain bikers visiting or living in Sunriver. A long-time favorite ride for locals is the Deschutes River Trail connecting to the Black Rock Trail, taking riders all the way to the Lava Lands Visitor Center on single track, except for a short connector ride between the two trails. The Deschutes River Trail starts on the north end of Sunriver next to the trailhead for the paved Sun-Lava pathway. Several miles of easy single track will greet mountain bike riders

Here you can do a 17-mile one-way ride to Sunriver with great views, low traffic and incredible single track. Expect some grinding climbs, but also hundreds of fast swooping corners. The Sunriver area bike shops can provide everything you need, including equipment, helmets, supplies, maps and information about special conditions that might exist. Get the most out of these amazing rides by being fully prepared. At Village Bike & Ski, Sunriver Sports and 4 Seasons Sports — located in The Village at Sunriver — visitors can learn about the myriad riding opportunities in the area from the knowledgeable staff and choose from a wide variety of mountain bikes for rent.

Conquer the Snow on a Fat-tire Bike

Photo by Woody Keen

F

at-tire bikes, also called Fatbikes, offer a whole new dimension (literally) to the mountain bike scene here in Sunriver. With tires up to five inches wide, fat-tire bikes can conquer just about any terrain, especially snow. That makes the trails in and around Sunriver, and the nearby mountains, accessible year-round. Upon first observation, fat-tire bikes may appear really heavy. But the frames and rims

are actually designed to make the bikes surprisingly light and easy to handle. As for navigating the snow, the tire pressure is reduced to less than five pounds, providing amazing traction and stability. So even when covered with snow, the many miles of paved pathways in Sunriver are rideable, although there are limits when the white stuff piles up too high. A special trail network accessed from the Wanoga Sno-Park is also now being groomed for fat-tire bikes by volunteers from the Central Oregon Trail Alliance. As the sport becomes more popular, watch for even more fat-tire bike trails easily accessible from Sunriver. The local bike shops in Sunriver rent fat-tire bikes. If you are new to this style of riding, especially in the winter, the helpful shop staff can get you all set up with the proper bike and equipment, and provide advice on where to ride. 2020-21 | SunriverChamber.com

Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort

Recreation

Mt. Bachelor, the crown jewel of Central Oregon’s winter sports mecca, is the sixth largest ski resort in North America.

O

pen for skiing and snowboarding from November through May, the 9,065 foot volcano is the tallest resort peak in all of Oregon and Washington and offers 4,318 acres of skiable terrain. Known for quality snow, diverse terrain and 360 degrees of skiing from the top of the Summit, Mt. Bachelor has a taste of everything. Whether you prefer powder stashes in the trees, steep heart-pumping descents or cruising corduroy, there is something well suited for skiers and riders of all abilities. Eleven chairlifts, including eight high speed quads serve a varied mix of over 100 runs with about 15 percent of the terrain rated as easier, 35 percent more difficult, 30 percent most difficult and 20 percent extremely difficult. New in 2016, the Cloudchaser lift opened 635 additional acres of intermediate and advanced terrain. Not only is Mt. Bachelor a great place for expert skiers and riders to feel the thrill, it is also a fantastic place to learn a snow sport or take the family for an exciting day out. The Sunrise area is a great place to get started with beginner lifts that offer an easy ride up and gentle slope down with a family friendly atmosphere. The Mountain Gateway building in West Village is the one stop shop for everything you need to start your day on the mountain, including tickets, passes and rental equipment. Gravity sports, one of the premiere ski and snowboard shops in Central Oregon, has a large assortment of skis, snowboards, boots, apparel and accessories. Walk right across the way from Gateway to West Village Lodge for a cold beer with a view in Clearing Rock Bar or an array of excellent lunch or breakfast options. If you’d like to try a mountain adventure of a different sort, Mt. Bachelor’s Snowblast Tubing Park is popular with groups and families while the Nordic Center offers the longest groomed Nordic ski season in North America. Cross-country skiers can explore more than a dozen groomed trails covering over 30 miles. In the Sunrise base area, take a scenic ride behind an Iditarod sled dog team with the Oregon Trail of Dreams. Stay snug and warm in the sled while the team and a professional musher take you on an exciting adventure through the Deschutes National Forest. The standard trip lasts about an hour, including orientation and an option to help take care of the dogs after the ride.

Conveniently located just 22 miles west of Bend, Mt.

Over a dozen telescopes ranging in size and focused at different objects in the night sky are available for enjoying spectacular views and learning about our universe. From crystal clear views of the moon and various planets, to star clusters and nebulas, the observatory’s views will amaze first time stargazers and amateur astronomers alike.

Sunriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery

T

he Sunriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery presents bimonthly (for two months) art exhibitions in the upper and the lower galleries featuring noted Central Oregon artists. Billye Turner, art consultant, and Sunriver Resort announce the 2020 spring, summer and fall bi-monthly exhibits. Opening the spring exhibit in April and May is the fine art of Debra Millette and Cindy Sheptow. Debra Millette, devoted to art in childhood, notes, “I was the child toting crayons and coloring books wherever I went.” As an adult in Sunriver, she created large scale murals and became noted as well for her trompe l’oeil. Now, in diversified style and mediums, she renders landscapes, botanicals and pet portraits. Along with other images, Millette shows Tigers in the Garden, an acrylic painting of Tiger Lilies reflecting her “passion for floral design and gardening” as well as her work in the floral business for the past 35 years. Cindy Sheptow notes, “I was the little girl who loved horses.” Later, she “dabbled in horses — training dressage, showing horses and teaching lessons while building my career as a pastry chef.” Success as a pastry chef in five star resorts in the West, also fostered her love of horses, especially the wild mustangs. Her days off were devoted to photography of mustangs and, subsequently, her return to painting their elegant images in acrylic on canvas. Sheptow’s latest artwork, inspired

while working in Wyoming last year, features “not only ranch horses but many wild mustangs that roam the lower areas of the Rocky Mountains.” Continuing with the summer exhibit in June and July is the fine art of Mark D. Shelton of Portland, Oregon. Shelton, a Native American of Seneca heritage, is a bachelor of fine arts graduate with honors of the Pratt Institute of Brooklyn, New York, noted for its fine arts program. A contemporary artist working with acrylic on collage, he chooses rare and exotic papers from around the world for his intricate, layered designs. The artist concentrates on imagery of indigenous peoples, and is an Honorary Tribal Artist for the Chinook Nation with whom he feels connection as exhibited in his artwork depicting native peoples. Completing the late summer and early fall exhibit in August and September is the fine art of Vivian Olsen and Barbara Slater. Vivian Olsen expresses a special devotion to animals, the major inspiration for her paintings. She reveals her admiration in life-like portraits of quail, wolves, bison and varieties of birds, all painted with watercolors, pastels or other mediums. She notes, “I portray each animal as unique. I strive to capture their individual personalities and postures so no two ever look alike — even quail!” A professional

artist, she exhibits her paintings in galleries, juried exhibits and in solo and group shows throughout the Northwest. Barbara Slater joins with Olsen in their exhibit at Sunriver. Also fond of animals and brilliant color, Slater exhibits images of horses, ravens and other creatures emphasized by backlighted turquoise, cobalt, burnt orange and cambium red. In addition, she presents uniquely close-up views into the throats of delicate lavender orchids, fresh with dew drops, as well as elegant white lilies viewed through a raindrop spotted window pane. A member of Oil Painters of America and the California Art Club, her art appears in galleries in Utah and Oregon and in collections throughout the United States. The Olsen and Slater exhibit concludes the six month special feature at the resort.

Experience the High Desert Museum

A

Where Memories are Made

day at the High Desert Museum is the perfect way to discover what makes Central Oregon unique. Nestled on 135 wooded acres just north of Sunriver, the Museum offers indoor and outdoor exhibits that spark curiosity and inspire exploration in visitors of all ages. Consistently ranked as a top thing to do in Central Oregon by TripAdvisor, this regional treasure is a must for your visit. Here you’ll find yourself face to face with wildlife native to the High Desert. In the Desertarium, you’ll learn about creatures including burrowing owls and Western pond turtles. Visit the Autzen Otter Exhibit, where you’ll giggle at the playful antics of Brook, Rogue and Pitch as they swim, run and tumble. See eagles and owls up close in the Donald M. Kerr Birds of Prey Center, and learn about them during Brook, Rogue and Pitch daily Bird of Prey Encounters. Step back in time and connect to the region’s past to present as you wander through dynamic, permanent exhibits such as By Hand Through Memory, which shares the culture of Plateau tribes, and Spirit of the West, which journeys through how the High Desert changed in the 19th century. Discover what life was like more than a century ago from the living history characters at the 1904 Miller Family Ranch, where Mrs. Miller will encourage you to explore her log cabin, tend to her garden, meet her chickens and play games. Wander up the hill to see the authentic Lazinka Sawmill, which was used at the turn of the 20th century. With up to nine changing exhibits each year, there’s always something new to explore at the Museum. Explore the art and culture of Burning Man through family friendly, participatory art installations in the exhibit Infinite Moment: Burning Man on the Horizon, open through January 3, 2021. Experience the vibrant images of photographer Matika Wilbur (Swinomish and Tulalip) in the new exhibit Natural Wanderment: Stewardship. Sovereignty. Sacredness. Wilbur journeyed 250,000 miles over eight years to capture the faces, landscapes and spirit of more than 500 federally recognized Indigenous tribes. Throughout the year, the Museum presents fantastic workshops, events, kids camps and special programs, offering something for everyone. Enjoy a freshly made lunch in the Museum’s Rimrock Café and pick up a unique gift or souvenir in the Museum’s store, Silver Sage Trading. “Fun museum with indoor and outdoor activities for year-round visits. Tons of culturally interesting, handson exhibits that are great for families, dates or just going by yourself. If you are visiting Bend or Sunriver, you should definitely visit the High Desert Museum.” ~ Trip Advisor Reviewer Inside Infinite Moment: Burning Man on the Horizon.

Living in Sunriver, Sunriver Style

Life in Sunriver by John Salzer, 20-year Permanent Resident o our Sunriver visitors: Welcome! We hope you enjoy your stay. One of the most common questions we get from those coming to Sunriver for the first time is, what it’s like to live here? Well, for most of us, it is like being on a permanent vacation. Like most of my neighbors, we first visited Sunriver for vacations. We would either come for a week in the summer or for long ski weekends in the winter. Then, when it was time to retire, we asked ourselves if we wanted to stay where we were currently living or move to where we could play year-round. When we weighed the pros and cons, the decision was easy. We moved to Sunriver permanently and joined about a thousand other people who call this special place home. While most of us are retired, a growing number of us are still working. A recent study found that Central Oregon, including Sunriver, has the highest percentage of work-at-home workers of anyplace in the country. Think of being able to get up from your office desk to take a break and go out your back door for a walk or bike ride on our 34 miles of paths, or snowshoe on the golf course, or head to the SHARC to exercise or swim, and then come back and go back to work… all without having to get in your car. Since 2000, the City of Bend has grown from 52,000 to close to 100,000. So more and more folks are choosing to live in Sunriver even if they work in Bend. After all, it’s only a 15-20 minute drive on a four lane divided highway. How many of you who are thinking of relocating to Central Oregon currently have this short of a commute? Why not live where you can breathe, not fight the traffic and have a real sense of community? And we have just about all of the services we need. We have our own fire and police department, our own K-8 school, our

own library and mall with stores, brew houses and restaurants. And where else can you live with the beautiful Deschutes River running along the edge of your community? One of the attractive features of Sunriver is that it has no natives. All of us came here from somewhere else. So we are very accepting of newcomers, and eager to make new friends. Name me a community that still has a monthly Community Potluck… ours has been going non-stop for almost 50 years. Speaking of 50 years… that’s how old our community is. One might think that makes us old. But look around and you’ll see that we aren’t, as we continue to make improvements to keep our community modern, vibrant and fun. Here are some examples: • Remodeled the buildings at The Village at Sunriver • Built the SHARC (Sunriver Homeowners Aquatics and Recreation Center) • Created a new boat launch for homeowners and their guests on the Deschutes River • Repaved all of our roads and 34 miles of bike paths • Replaced the children’s climbing equipment at Fort Rock Park • Now underway is a complete remodel of the Sunriver owners’ North Pool complex, including a new lap pool, children’s pool, hot tub and grass sunbathing area Most of the improvements and amenities that have been built in the past ten years have come from money set aside in our reserve fund, yet we currently pay only $132 in monthly maintenance fees. So if you are giving some thought to making Sunriver your home, come visit the Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce in the Sunriver Business Park to find all the information you’ll need.

home and under nearby trees reduces the potential of fire spreading to a home. Pruning trees away from a roof and other vegetation will reduce the “ladder effect” of fire. Once home owners create a defensible space around their home it is important to maintain the space.

Activities of the UDRC include public informational meetings and large community meetings that focus on understanding the issues relating to water flows on the Upper Deschutes River, the Deschutes river basin and protection of our neighborhoods from wildfires.

A fire adapted community is defined as “a knowledgeable and engaged community in which the awareness and actions of residents regarding infrastructure, buildings, landscaping, and the surrounding ecosystem lessens the need for extensive protection actions and enables the community to safely accept fire as a part of the surrounding landscape.”

The UDRC promotes and helps homeowners to be “fire wise” by creating defensible space on their property.

unriver Women’s Club (SRWC) welcomes women from Sunriver and the surrounding communities. We have been active in the community since 1972 with approximately 300 members. The SRWC has a variety of social activities with something for everyone no matter the time of year. Activities include winter fun, dinner club, hikes, book clubs, lunch with friends, a knitting group, monthly luncheons with interesting speakers and a group that participates in a variety of social activities including theater, dinner, bingo, concerts and weekly breakfasts. In July, as a thank you to the community, we organize the Community Picnic in Mary McCallum Park, a fun event with great food and music. SRWC has a long history of supporting nonprofit organizations in South Deschutes County. Since 1999, the SRWC has granted over $636,000. In 2019, we granted a total of $70,000. This includes $50,000 in grants awarded to nonprofits providing basic necessities of food, shelter, health, clothing, education,

In 2020, $50,000 in grants will be awarded and we will fund one project through our Power of 100+ program for a total of $60,000+. The SRWC is able to grant funds due to our highly successful Sunriver Art Fair and other fundraisers including our spring fundraiser, the Sunriver Art Auction & Wine Event and our winter fundraiser, the Winter Gala. We also participate in other smaller fundraisers, which benefit our philanthropy fund. Our theme, Steppin’ Up for Friends, Fun and Philanthropy, really tells you what the SRWC is all about. sunriverwomensclub.com

brings in guest speakers on a variety of timely topics. Both men and women are welcome to attend. The Men’s Club also hosts an annual picnic in June. sunriver.mensclub@gmail.com

Sunriver, the

Perfect Pooch Playground

S

unriver is the perfect pooch playground for those travelers who would not dream of leaving their canine companions at home. After all, Fido is part of the family, right? With 34 miles of paved pathways in Sunriver and a new network of trails in the National Forest just across Cardinal Landing Bridge, you and your dog will never run out of places to explore. Enjoy the serenity of the outdoors and allow the magic of the forest to

stimulate all human and canine senses. Dogs are allowed off-leash on Sunriver pathways and at Fort Rock Park as long as they mind their manners and are under effective voice control of their humans. Please remember to carry a leash at all times and clean up after your pet, even in the forest. There are numerous clean up/ disposal stations along the pathways and at Fort Rock park for your convenience. Whether you are staying in a vacation rental or the Sunriver


Living in Sunriver, Sunriver Style

Resort, you will be able to find many dog-friendly accommodations. Most rental properties allow dogs. Be sure to verify with your property manager. Bennington Properties offers a complimentary dog wash (April through October) and an off-leash recreation park open to all guests and owners in Sunriver. In the summer, Bennington hosts a weekly Yappy Hour on Thursdays for pooches to socialize while their humans mingle and enjoy refreshments. The Village at Sunriver also offers al fresco dining opportunities as well as many dog-friendly shops. If you didn’t bring all the pet essentials, such as high quality canned or dry food, or even if you just want a new toy, the Sunriver Country Store IGA in The Village and the Camp Abbot Trading Co. in the Sunriver Business Park will surely have what you need. For those who are ready to explore the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway, many of the lakes provide dogs with a welcome relief from the summer heat. Elk Lake is a wonderful place for dogs to play in the water, and the lodge is pet-friendly as well. For a quieter experience and fewer crowds, try Little Lava Lake. During the winter, Edison and Wanoga Sno-Parks have family and dog-friendly activity areas where you can safely enjoy exploring the snow covered hills, including snow shoeing and cross country skiing. Have you ever tried skijoring? It’s like cross country skiing with superpowers as your dog pulls you along, making every glide a little longer and every effort a little easier. So bring your pooch to Sunriver and get ready to create some memories for every member of your family. 2020-21 | SunriverChamber.com

The Sunriver community and the nearby 27 neighborhoods that comprise Three Rivers South (TRS) both have a lot to offer.

Living in Sunriver, Sunriver Style Continued from page 122 and haste. At the same time, the locals here have all the creature comforts, and value community connections and new friendships. Amenities in Sunriver include the 34 miles of paved pathways, so that many people walk or ride their bikes to nearby shopping, services and athletic facilities. The roads are well maintained, including in the winter, and the community is served by its own police and fire departments. Many visitors start out by purchasing a vacation or shortterm rental home. It’s a great way to get to know Sunriver and the surrounding area. Vacation rental homes here average between 100-125 nights per year. Three Rivers South continues to grow in popularity. These neighborhoods, located to the south between Sunriver and La Pine, are intersected by the Deschutes, Spring and Fall rivers. There is great diversity in housing here. For example, some areas may allow manufactured homes, while others have the option of living in gated communities. Purchasing Your Dream Home People looking to buy a home, whether in Sunriver or TRS, have a host of choices when it comes to the cost of housing — from starter cabins in the $300,000 range to

custom-built luxury homes nearing $3 million. Purchasing a home in this area is a good investment, including for first time buyers, says local real estate broker Ginny Kansas-Meszaros, especially if you hold the property for 10-15 years. The quality of life offered in the greater Sunriver area — country living, resort amenities and the surrounding public lands that protect views — all contribute to home values appreciating over time. “If you budget wisely and make smart home improvements, you can weather any economic storms, while Sunriver and Three Rivers South — surrounded by forests, rivers and mountains — will always make this area a highly desirable place to live and vacation,” notes Kansas-Meszaros. Local business, including the Sunriver Resort, continue to make capital investments that also increase the overall value of the community, adds Kansas-Meszaros. Maintaining a Home in Sunriver and TRS When it comes to maintaining a home in Sunriver and Three Rivers South, residents need not worry about finding contractors to help maintain their home.

Continued from page 124 looking to do a major remodel, roofing, painting, plumbing, or landscaping, there are highly skilled experts available who take great pride in their work. Camp Abbot Trading Company, the local hardware store, also has what the do-ityourselfer needs for home maintenance. Homeowners do face some weather-related challenges. While enjoying about 300 days of sunshine per year, Sunriver and TRS are at about 4,000-feet elevation. This means real winters with real snow. Homes here require foam vent covers in the foundation to protect pipes, and snow build up on the roof can cause ice dams. To help local homeowners with these and other cold weather challenges, businesses like roofers and landscapers switch gears in the winter months to provide snow removal services. During summer months, residents take advantage of the dry days to paint their homes and rake pine needles. Again, the weather can be taxing for projects like deck maintenance, with heavy moisture and cold in the winter, and dry heat in the summer. “Most homes in Sunriver include a wood deck to allow homeowners and visitors alike to enjoy the splendor of the outdoors inches from their back door. If decks could talk, however, they would tell you they would prefer to live inside,”

says Gavin Hepp, owner of Web Foot Painting. But Hepp advises that with proper care, like a woodpenetrating stain, and the right timing — when the deck is dry and the spring pollen has fallen — decks can look great and last a long time. Working with Home Owners Associations One of the benefits of living in Sunriver is the quality and aesthetic standards for homes set by the Sunriver Home Owners Association (SROA), and the services that are provided by SROA to help residents maintain these standards. These guidelines help preserve Sunriver’s nature-based lifestyle. For example, residents who want to make changes to the outside of their homes, like a change in color, landscaping, or an addition, must receive approval from a citizens design committee. SROA also maintains a list of registered contractors that homeowners can utilize when they need work done. Some neighborhoods in Three Rivers South may also be governed by Home Owners Associations. Those looking to purchase a home should learn about the HOA for a particular community. Whether buying a home or planning a maintenance project, you can obtain a local business referral from the Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce at 541-593-8149 or sunriverchamber.com.

Spirit of Giving

Care & Share provides nourishing food to about 200 lowincome families in South Deschutes County on the last Friday of every month, a time when other sources of support may be depleted. Volunteers pick up food at various retail outlets, package fresh fruit, pack the donated food in boxes and help load clients’ cars. Madeline Bednarek, 541-593-3653

One of the largest groups of volunteers in Sunriver works at the Second Tern Thrift Store, located in Spring River Plaza. This expansive second-hand store sells a huge array of pre-owned merchandise with the proceeds going to the Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory. secondtern.com

The La Pine-Sunriver Habitat for Humanity provides volunteer opportunities to help build homes for lower income families. The group is reducing the costs of housing by building triplex townhomes at the new Putney Place development in La Pine. Volunteers also work at the ReStore with all proceeds going to home construction. habitatlapinesunriver.org

Helping low-income individuals and families with food, utility bills and prescription medicine is the goal of St. Vincent de Paul in La Pine. People of all faiths work and volunteer at St. Vincent de Paul’s Retail Thrift Store in La Pine. lapinesvdp.org

Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory (SNCO) serves more than 5,000 students each year with educational programs that advance scientific literacy and nurture STEM skills. Volunteers give educational presentations, assist with classes, greet visitors, assist behind the scenes by feeding and caring for the ambassador animals and provide raptor rehabilitation. At the Oregon Observatory, volunteers give astronomy presentations, and help with rocketry classes. In partnership with SNCO and the Sunriver Owners Association, Project Ponderosa is an award-winning educational and environmental program founded by Sunriver resident and retired life science teacher Lee Stevenson. Volunteers plant and care for the trees at the local nursery, and help present educational programs. snco.org

The mission of the Upper Deschutes River Communities (UDRC) is to enable neighborhoods along the area’s rivers to work together to resolve natural resources issues. Volunteer activities include an annual river cleanup, hazardous fuels reduction projects and promoting Firewise Communities. udrc.org

The SoDeCo Chapter of the Central Oregon Trail Alliance builds and maintains mountain bike trails in South Deschutes County. The group collaborates with land owners to promote sustainable trails and advocates for recreational trails throughout Central Oregon. cotamtb.com

Volunteers play a key role at the La Pine Community Kitchen, which provides assistance, including free food, clothing and produce to those experiencing hunger and a lack of resources. lapinecommunitykitchen.org

The Sunriver Police Department’s Citizens Patrol utilizes volunteers to help keep the community safe by assisting with traffic control during events and patrolling the community. sunriverpd.org

Enjoy working with kids? The SMART Reading program invites adult volunteers to read to children one or two days a week at Three Rivers School, located in the Sunriver Business Park. smartreading.org

The Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce seeks volunteers for its Ambassador Program. These individuals represent the Chamber in the community and help staff the Chamber’s office. exec@sunriverchamber.com
