Welcome to Sunriver

Photo courtesy of Suriver Resort


he Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to share this unique and special place with you. From the start, Sunriver was planned to be a place where we could live with nature in harmony. This was the first development of its kind to integrate environmental engineering concerns in the planning of the community. The needs of nature and wildlife in Sunriver are just as important as our everyday comforts. Over the last 50 years Sunriver has become the perfect blend of destination resort and residential community. You can do everything under the sun on 3,300 acres of forest and meadows bordered by the Deschutes River and public lands. Sunriver is a place for families and there is something for everyone to do and enjoy regardless of age. It is a



place where you can get away from a busy schedule, spend quality family time and reflect on what’s really important in life. It is an excellent place to live and work. For the fortunate people who call Sunriver home, the community provides all the public and business services needed for work and play. Experiencing all Sunriver has to offer 24/7 and 365 days a year can be the ultimate lifestyle choice for families and outdoor-loving active adults. Although the community has been the family-friendly vacation destination of choice for nearly half a century, thanks to significant investments by stakeholders and homeowners, this crown jewel of the high desert continues to experience a remarkable renaissance. The beautiful Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center (SHARC),

located on 22 acres between Overlook Road and Beaver Drive, features seasonal outdoor aquatics including a leisure pool, two slides, a lazy river and splash pads and pool for the wee ones. The indoor pool and adjacent outdoor hot tub provide adults with year round fitness swimming and social soaking, and the pool caters to the younger set with a beach entry, liquid vortex, bubblers, overhead splashers and water basketball area. The Village at Sunriver, Sunriver’s retail core, continues to reinvest in capital improvements. In recent years many buildings have been replaced or have received major remodels, and the rejuvenation is still under way. The large courtyard at the heart of The Village hosts many community events throughout the summer. The Sunriver Resort has replaced its Lodge Village pool with The Cove, a


complex that includes a large wading pool, massive sunbathing deck, a long waterslide and elevated hot tub, all of which will overlook a new man-made lake with children’s sand play area and nature trail. Simultaneously, the Resort remodeled its lounge, restaurant and lodge kitchen with a modern Northwest theme that features more windows, more natural light and improved views of the surrounding scenery. As a Sunriver visitor, you can enjoy the same amenities that lured homeowners to this special place — more than 50 miles of paved bike and walking paths, the scenic Deschutes River and Sunriver Resort’s world-class golf in your backyard. Challenging play on 31 exceptionally maintained tennis courts, along with a great tennis program, have earned Sunriver a top 50 tennis destinations in the U.S. ranking by Tennis Magazine.

Sunriver boasts its own nature center and celestial observatory, private airport, horse stables and river marina. Within a short drive, you can explore dozens of alpine lakes, the Newberry National Volcanic Monument, the Cascade Range and the majestic Deschutes River. The choice of accommodations is just as wide. Reserve a romantic hotel-like River Lodge room, enjoy the convenience of a condominium or spread out in one of hundreds of tastefully appointed, fully furnished private homes that accommodate from two to 20 or more. A luxurious executive retreat is well-suited for the ultimate relaxing vacation. Looking for three homes on the same lane for a big family reunion? Sunriver has them all. Summer is the most popular season for vacationers, but Sunriver’s proximity to the slopes of Mt. Bachelor

entices snow-riders of all ages to stay here during winter and early spring. The peaceful, visually stunning autumn months are the favorites of those who appreciate warm days on the golf course or bike trails and crisp nights with the hint of wood smoke in the air. For a four-season destination, you just can’t beat Sunriver. If this is your introduction to Sunriver — welcome! We hope that your weekend getaway or family vacation might just turn into a lifetime. The Sunriver Chamber of Commerce is here to help make your vacation and visit the most enjoyable experience of your life...or help you relocate your business or residence to this lovely place. If you’d like more information about Sunriver, don’t hesitate to drop by the Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce located in the Sunriver Business Park at 56825 Venture Lane, Suite 110. 2018-19 |

Sunriver History

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


n the shores of the Deschutes River 15 miles south of Bend, tucked away in the ponderosa pines, is Sunriver. This gem of Central Oregon offers world-class golfing, biking, kayaking, boating, tennis, pickleball, fly fishing, skiing and general relaxation that makes it the destination of choice for travelers from around the world. While it’s now known for its fine dining, championship golf courses and luxurious lodging, its beginnings were much more humble. 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 Sunriver Lodge. During the next 50 years the area was used by the cattlemen, 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

History A craftsman builds the stairs in Sunriver Resort’s Great Hall.

Troops training

Building a bridge

Barracks high ceiling, large stone fireplace and balcony overlooking the main floor. This structure still stands today and is called 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 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.

Soldiers in a boat 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. Today 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 the Resort’s overnight lodging facilities, host as many as 15,000 visitors a day in the heat of the summer and during winter holidays. Sunriver has a long and rich history dating back hundreds if not thousands of years. From its 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. Portions of this article were contributed by Brad A. Ward MD and Jonathan Kahnoski. 2018-19 |

The SHARC That Loves Tourists by SROA Staff


uring more than one million vacationers, residents and guests through its doors since opening in the spring of 2012, visitors to the Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center (SHARC) report being rejuvenated by the brilliant range of activities and amenities the $18 million 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 on the pool deck or lawn or watch toddlers safely play in a separate wading pool and sand play area. Thousands of people screamed down the winter tubing hill (on select dates between November and February), scrambled around the playground, shoot hoops on the fullsize basketball court, played disc golf, tested their skills on the bocce ball court or picnicked in the park. Even when the weather turns cold, SHARC’s indoor, multi-

use pool continues to attract people. The pool’s zero entry beach 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 be split into two smaller rooms) hosts business meetings, weddings, banquets, seminars, events and fundraisers. Access to SHARC is free to Sunriver property owners (who are members of Sunriver Owners Association) with a valid member ID, those with SROA recreation passes and guests of vacation rental properties enrolled in SROA’s Recreation Plus Program. The general public is welcome via a daily gate fee. 541-585-5000 2018-19 |

Aquatic Adventures Await


amed River of the Falls (Riviere des Chutes) by early French fur traders, the Deschutes River is a major part of the Central Oregon landscape and lifestyle. Along with providing a beautiful local landmark and countless recreational opportunities, the river contributes significantly to the local economy by providing irrigation water for agriculture. It flows north from Little Lava Lake in the Cascade Mountains all the way to the mighty Columbia River. Nothing’s more inviting on a scorching summer day than a lazy float down the river. Start at Sunriver Resort’s Marina on a canoe, kayak or raft for a two-hour, six-mile float north on the Deschutes to just above Benham Falls where a shuttle will

conveniently bring you back. The Marina offers family float trips, kayak, canoe, raft and stand-up paddleboard rentals and lessons on a first-come, first-served basis, so get there early. The Marina, closed during winter months, also sells boating supplies, sportswear and snacks. You can rent river floating equipment from Sunriver Sports, 4 Seasons Recreational Outfitters, Sunriver Toy House Rentals and Tumalo Creek Canoe and Kayak where you’ll find swimwear, swim goggles, mask/fin sets, water toys for the pool, lake and river, sunscreen, sun hats, towels and UV shirts. These stores can also help you with information about where to put-in or take-out, float times and shuttle information. For a thrilling whitewater adventure

Floating the River in Sunriver


by Sunriver Scene hen summer heats up, many Sunriver visitors and residents take to the Deschutes River to cool off. On the hottest days, expect to see flotillas of inner tubes, rafts, canoes, kayaks and stand up paddleboards. The Deschutes River in the Sunriver area runs wide and gentle through gorgeous mountain scenery with good wildlife viewing opportunities. This part of the river is rated Class 1 moving water with riffles, minor waves and few or no obstructions. As inviting as it looks, the river’s current is deceptively strong and the water is much colder than most people expect. The Deschutes River is spring fed and water temperatures rarely exceed 60 degrees. A quick dunk in the river feels good for a few moments on the hottest days, but hypothermia is a real concern for anyone unable to get out of the water. Life vests, appropriate clothing, food and water, knowing in advance the distances and float times and safe boating practices are important to keep the focus on fun. Popular floats between publicly accessible launch and takeout points in the Sunriver area include: Big River (River Mile 199.2) to Harper Bridge (RM 191.7). Distance 7.5 miles. Float time: 3-5 hours depending on wind direction and paddle effort. Note: Access at Harper Bridge is on the south side of the bridge next to the golf course. Harper Bridge (RM 191.7) to Besson Day Use Area (RM 189.9). Distance: 1.8 miles. Float time: 45 minutes. Note: Access at Harper Bridge is on the south side of the bridge next to the golf course. Harper Bridge (RM 191.7) to Sunriver Resort’s Canoe Takeout (RM 183.1). Distance: 8.6 miles. Float time: 4-6 hours depending on wind direction and paddle effort. Note: Access at Harper Bridge is

on the south side of the bridge next to the golf course. Besson Day Use Area (RM 189.9) to Sunriver Resort’s Canoe Takeout (RM 188.2). Distance: 6.8 miles. Float time: 2-4 hours depending on wind direction and paddle effort. Besson Day Use Area (RM 189.9) to Benham Falls Day Use Area at River Mile 182.0. Distance: 7.9 miles. Float time: 3-4 hours depending on wind direction and paddle effort. Sunriver Resort operates a commercial marina at River Mile 188.2 off River Road. The general public and guests of the Resort must rent boats from the marina to utilize this facility. Boat rental fees include a shuttle ride back from the Canoe Takeout at River Mile 182.0.

Hiking Trails


he Sunriver area is well-known for its plethora of outdoor activities and the hardy adrenaline-seeking white-water kayakers and mountain bikers who visit the area won’t be disappointed. However, for a more leisurely recreation there are plenty of scenic hiking trails to explore, at all levels of difficulty with no extreme sports pedigree required. Sunriver provides convenient access to the Cascade Lakes National Scenic Byway. Starting in Sunriver and ending in Bend, the scenic drive offers beautiful scenery along the way as it circles Mt. Bachelor. There are several lakes along the way where hikers can stop and enjoy a picnic lunch or take a walk around the lake. Most lakes contain High Mountain Lake Resorts equipped with convenience stores and/or restaurants as well as over-night 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 free Wilderness permit before entry and remember group sizes are limited to 12 people. The Cascades Lakes highway (or Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway) is closed during the winter and usually does not open until Memorial Day weekend. The Deschutes River Trail can be accessed from the north end of Sunriver, and winds along the banks of the river all the way to Bend. Take a waterfall tour as you hike north, passing Benham, Dillon and Lava Island falls along the way. The Newberry National Volcanic Monument in the Deschutes National Forest is a unique feature and contains one of the greatest diversity of geologic features in the world. Visitors from Sunriver can walk the 5.5 mile Sun-Lava paved path. Visitors can enjoy interpretive talks at Lava Lands before a short hike up Lava Butte. The Monument offers over 60 trails ready to be explored from short interpretive walks to the 21mile Crater Rim trail and provides an amazing way to spend the day and experience one of Central Oregon’s volcanoes.

The Newberry Country Trail

he Newberry Country Trail (NCT) is a three hour plus driving/car tour centered in Newberry Country, circling the Newberry National Volcanic Monument and Lava Lands. It starts on Hwy. 97 15 miles south of the Sunriver in Oregon’s newest city- La Pine! The trail forms a boot shaped map that is bordered on the west by the Pacific Crest Trail/Cascade Lakes Hwy., and ranges east into the high deserts of North Lake County after looping into north Klamath County. Here is the tour as it unfolds: 1. La Pine-visit one of the area’s largest visitor centers at the La Pine Chamber of Commerce (541-536-9771 or ) to get specifics about the NCT and plan your trip. Everything you need for your trip can be found here. 2. The Newberry National Monument is the next stop. Paulina Falls, Paulina Lake, East Lake, the Obsidian flow, trails, hot springs and campgrounds abound. Stop to refresh at the two high lake resorts and fish, hike, bike or camp. 3. La Pine State Park is home to “Big Red” — the world’s largest Ponderosa Pine Tree. The park has year round camping and great fishing on the Big Deschutes River. 4. Ten miles north of the park is the turnoff to Sunriver. Sunriver is Oregon’s largest resort community with 50 miles of bike and walking trails. First class amenities include the Sunriver Resort, the Sunriver Brewery, shopping mall, restaurants, Sunriver Nature Center and Observatory, the SHARC 22 acre water-park and vacation rentals galore. 5. Drive west from Sunriver on South Century Drive and follow the Cascades Scenic Highway.

Turn south on the Cascade Lakes Hwy. and head for Crescent Lake Junction where it meets Hwy. 58. Visit Odell Lake and Crescent Lake and find great places to eat, hike, recreate and play.


Exploring Underground Lava Caves

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. 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. The cave temperature is a constant 42 degrees and is open seasonally, so check with the Lava Lands Visitors Center to find out the latest schedule. Visitors may take self-guided tours, and lantern rentals are available for $5 until 4pm. 541-593-2421

7. Head back on the Hwy. 58 cutoff and go east to the small logging towns of Crescent and Gilchrist. Gilchrist features one of Central Oregon’s oldest logging mills that is still in operation while Crescent was the railroad town that shipped the logs and features a unique restaurant and motel, the Mohawk Restaurant and Lounge 8. Driving north on Hwy. 97, come to Hwy. 31, just two miles south of the city of La Pine. Within half an hour, you will drive into the Great Basin, with the towering ring of stones (Hydro Volcano) that gives Fort Rock its name. Visit the park site, the pioneer cemetery, and Heritage Village where you will find an historic general store, homes, school, church and buildings that were literally “dragged” from their original locations and relocated here 100 years ago! 9. The driving to Christmas Valley shows off the best alfalfa and hay growing region of Oregon and the tiny town with the famous gift store (The Willows) that offers unusual and unique gifts. The area includes restaurants, refreshments and several desert destinations. Check out North Lake County/Christmas Valley with 11,000 acres of Sand Dunes for ATV enthusiasts, Crack in the Ground and miles of trails for hiking and horseback riding. Follow the geology and ancient history of Native peoples in the area. 10. Continue driving to Silver Lake and you will find 24hour gasoline and the all night market, along with the world famous Cowboy Dinner Tree, Thompson Reservoir and picture worthy views. 11. Further east on Hwy. 31 is Summer Lake Resort offering great accommodations, good food and a beautiful pond behind the motel. Keep driving into the desert and you will reach Summer Lake Hot Springs. The newly restored facility offers accommodations and camp/RV sites. On the NCT you can find all levels of sports activities including winter sports, like skiing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, snowman building, and winter cabins.

When the snow melts in spring, the NTC offers a variety of activities that include biking, motorcycling, kayaks, fishing, canoes, boating, horseback riding, waterskiing, swimming, hiking, camping ATV-ing, RV-ing and more. The area is also a haven for rock hounds, budding geology buffs or natural historians. The archeologist in you can also find Native American sites with ancient tribal histories that predate modern man! The paleontologist will find fossils and geological history that reveals how the area has changed. Residents, who call Newberry Country home — where we came to play and moved to stay, invite you to join us here.

Scenic Byway

unriver is conveniently located near what’s arguably one of the most beautiful drives in the entire Northwest: the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway. 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 at the Sno-Parks along the sides of the road. Be sure to stop by the new Deschutes National Forest’s Welcome Center located at the junction of Conklin Road and the Scenic Byway.

Newberry National Volcanic Monument


ewberry Volcano is the largest volcano in the Cascade Range, roughly the size of Rhode Island. It features extraordinary geologic formations such as the Lava Cast Forest, the mile-long Lava River Cave, the mind-boggling 17-mile wide Newberry Caldera which contains two lakes (Paulina Lake and East Lake), Oregon’s youngest lava flow, Paulina Falls which spills 80 feet over the caldera’s rim and Paulina Peak (7,985 feet). Newberry’s eruptive history began 400,000 years ago and has created massive lava flows that covered 1,200 square miles, dozens of lava tubes and over 400 cinder cones and volcanic vents during its active periods. Newberry last erupted about 1,300 years ago, and present-day hot springs and geologically young lava flows indicate that it could reawaken at any time. Because of its proximity to Sunriver, Bend and La Pine, U.S. Geological Survey scientists closely monitor the volcano for signs of unrest. From the native communities who first crossed this land to the early European and American explorers, to casual visitors today, people have marveled at this rugged landscape for thousands of years. Lava Lands Visitor Center is the interpretive hub of Newberry National Volcanic Monument. Friendly rangers help orient visitors to the Monument using a 3D topographic map and a state of the art interpretive exhibit on area geologic and cultural history. The Visitor Center offers daily films, easy hikes on the Trail of the Molten Lands and the Trail of the Whispering Pines, picnics under the pines, live ranger interpretive talks and spectacular views from the top of Lava Butte, which is the site of an active fire lookout tower. 541-383-5530

Tennis & Pickleball


erennially listed as one of the world’s top tennis destinations by www.tennisresortsonline. com, Sunriver added a Tennis Magazine top 50 ranking to its tennis trophy case in 2012. Sunriver’s 24 outdoor tennis courts, revitalized programs and numerous tournaments create popularity for the Sunriver community as Central Oregon’s true “Tennis Town.” The Sunriver Owner’s Association (SROA) continues to rebuild many of its existing courts when needed, which proves to be quite a draw for state and national tennis tournaments. Most of the tennis activity is focused at the North Courts next to the 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. Tennis court reservations can be made at 541-593-5707. Court fees are $15 per court per 1.5 hours of playing time (free to SROA members w/ a Member Preference Card and for SROA Recreation Plus Program pass holders). Sunriver tennis programs are coordinated by a certified tennis pro and a seasoned staff starting in June through mid-September. The tennis offshoot, known as pckleball, has also taken root. The game is a combination of ping pong and badminton. There are six pickleball courts located near the playground at Fort Rock Park. Pickleball paddles and instruction are available at Tennis Hill at Fort Rock Park. The Sunriver Pickleball Club plays on a regular basis on SROA’s pickleball courts. If you are a guest of Sunriver Resort, you have four additional outdoor and three indoor tennis courts available for use.

Pedal the Pathways of Sunriver


unriver is Oregon’s original bike friendly vacation spot and boasts more than 50 miles of paved pathways dedicated to bikes and pedestrians. Whether you’re looking for an adventurous mountain bike ride or a tranquil, lazy loop through the pines along a paved trail on your way to the store, Sunriver has you covered. Many rental homes come equipped with bikes, but if they aren’t included and you don’t bring your own, there are bike rental shops where you can rent every conceivable kind of bicycle and accessory including toddler trailers, tandem and recumbent bikes. The pathways curve around golf courses, under roads, through pine forest, along the Deschutes River and through Sunriver’s Great Meadow. Pathway maps, including pathway rules, are available at local bike shops and from kiosks along the pathways and roads, and 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 the way. Limitless mountain bike riding awaits you in the surrounding National Forest lands, including a challenging single-track trail to Benham Fall accessed off Circle 7. A 5.5mile multi-use paved pathway connects Sunriver to the Lava Lands Visitor Center. The new 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 extends a sense of freedom from not having to drive to

reach special places. From Lava Lands Visitor Center, the Sun-Lava pathway runs southwest, essentially parallel to Forest Road 9702 (Benham Falls Road), gradually downhill to the Benham Falls East Day Use Area on the bank of the Deschutes River. From here, pedestrians and cyclists can cross the river on a wood bridge and proceed downstream about ¼-mile to spectacular Benham Falls. A well-marked junction to Sunriver is a few hundred yards east of Benham East Day Use area. The Sun Lava pathway features mileage markers and intersection signage to help users navigate to their intended destination. It would be difficult to get lost on this pathway as it is the only paved surface for miles around. Just about all uses — hiking, biking, skating, skateboards and wheelchairs — are permitted on the Sun-Lava pathway. The pathway is not plowed in winter, offering itself as a delightful and well-marked cross-country ski trail. Please observe signage at the south end of the pathway entering Sunriver where different rules (no roller-skates or skateboards in Sunriver due to higher volumes of traffic) apply. Single-track mountain bike trails still exist between Sunriver and Lava Lands for those seeking off-pavement adventures, including the Black Rock Trail and Trail 2.1. Paulina Plunge, a downhill waterfall mountain bike tour a few miles south of Sunriver, will take you to six waterfalls and two natural waterslides while coasting six miles down a smooth forest trail.

Elkibou’s Food Cart Park


by DAVID CLEWETT for SR Magazine hether your Sunriver adventure includes exploring the nearby Cascade Lakes, riding the many paved bike paths, golfing or hiking, everyone enjoys capping their perfect day by gathering at Elkibou’s Food Cart Park. Sunriver’s newest attraction offers an eclectic mix of dining options prepared by local chefs, beer and wine, live entertainment and a place for family and friends to gather outside after a day of exploring. Located on the outskirts of the Sunriver Business Park, Elkibou’s is a grassy and spacious park situated on hilltop land with tall pine trees. It is the ideal place to bring family and friends to gather in the outdoors to enjoy the sunshine or star lit sky. Elkibou’s features up to seven unique food carts, a heated pavilion featuring live music, couples gas fire pits, a grassy kid’s park and sports and wine bar. The park is extremely pet and bike friendly, is only a short ride away from Sunriver Resort and has 44 bike racks for convenience. At the center of the park is a heated entertainment pavilion where local musicians perform and patrons gather around the nearby large communal wood burning fire pit for warmth beneath the clear mountain sky. For those who prefer a bit more privacy there are three smaller “couples” fire pits spaced surreptitiously around the beer garden. With a historic Oregon Trail theme running through the park the entire property pays homage to Oregon’s history with wagon wheels and covered wagons adorning the grounds. Settlers along the Oregon Trail loaded their covered wagons much like we do today with a kayak on top and bikes secured to the back. Just like the pioneers of the west, visitors to Elkibou’s can circle the wagons, pick out the food and drink they prefer, and then settle next to a warm fire while the kids play. Elkibou’s was built unlike any other food cart park. It is first and foremost a park

with walking paths as guests meander the grounds. It is equal parts historical museum, dog park, playground and beer garden. All underground utilities were used to power each cart so that unsightly piping is hidden leaving a natural outdoor landscape to explore. The mythical Elkibou “Gus” is the park’s official mascot and children enjoy playing a bean bag “Feed Gus the Elkibou” game while adults compete in a friendly game of corn hole. The park features a variety of additional lawn games to keep everyone entertained. The park is owned and developed by Sunriver resident Mike McGinn. His intent was to build a permanent park to provide a special and unique gathering area for people in the community. The park features natural gas, electric, clean water and waste water disposal with indoor restrooms and future plans for permanent outdoor restrooms. Visit the Elkibou’s website or social media channels for information about various activities taking place at the park including art nights, local performing musicians and other events. Elkibou’s Food Cart Park in Sunriver brings together the very best of Central Oregon in a whimsical, magical forest setting. Great food, great craft beer, colorful carts and happy people gathering under the Central Oregon sky. It is the perfect end to a perfect day!

Sunriver Music Festival Leonard Bernstein at 100 — A Celebration!


hat would Lenny make of all the fuss over his 100th birthday? First of all, no one EVER called him Lenny!

Leonard Bernstein is arguably the single most influential American musician of the 20th century. He succeeded where others failed: He truly broke down the barriers between popular music and the classical world. Sunriver Music Festival’s celebration of the 100th anniversary of his birth is one of many occurring throughout the world in 2018.

Sunriver Traditions

he Christmas season is always a magical time of year, but in Sunriver a combination of snow, gingerbread houses and sleigh rides bring to mind a picture-perfect holiday fit for a Frank Capra movie. At Sunriver Resort, you and your children can visit Santa’s Workshop for your chance to make homemade crafts, just like one of Santa’s elves. Or perhaps you’d rather experience a sugarplum story time, ornament workshop or magic show. There will also be plenty of concerts with holiday music to get you into the Christmas spirit. To kick off the season, enjoy the Grand Illumination festivities on November 17, which include unique light displays, children’s crafts, fireworks and more! Or treat yourself to a sleigh ride on an old-fashioned, horse-drawn sleigh. And once the Christmas magic is over, celebrate the New Year with a full slate of activities to ring out the old and bring in the new. Holiday Dining Events Relax and let Sunriver Resort do the cooking at one of several holiday dining events including Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s buffets,

as well as Breakfast with Santa. Gingerbread Junction The largest collection of gingerbread houses in the Northwest are on display in the Sunriver Lodge. Families can see the extravagantly decorated houses, and proceeds go to a local charity. Santa’s Workshop Step into the magical world of Santa’s Workshop and create your own crafts. Elf Tuck-Ins Imagine the light in your children’s eyes when they receive a special bedtime story from one of Santa’s elves. Guests of Sunriver Resort can request one of the resort’s elves to stop by for an “Elf Tuck-In” to read a magical story and bid the children goodnight.

Sunriver STARS Community Theater


he Sunriver STARS Community Theater (SSCT) was started in December, 2011 by our Artistic Director Victoria Kristy. Victoria is a former educator and drama teacher, coach and director with years of experience especially with children. She moved to Sunriver with her husband Alan Zalewski after a successful career as a volunteer actor and board member at the Tacoma Musical Playhouse. She produced the STARS first play in August, 2012, so the Theater is now in its sixth season having produced 22 plays to date. SSCT normally produces three-four plays per season using all Photo courtesy of Sunriver Stars volunteer directors, actors and back stage staff, and is governed by a group of local volunteer board members. Our venues presently are The Door in the Sunriver Business Park and SHARC in the Sunriver Village. Shows for the future include a melodrama comedy in May, a fall musical for children and adults directed by Victoria Kristy, a winter audience participation mystery directed by Susan Inman, followed by a comedy farce in the winter, and a comedy in the spring. One of the exciting aspects of the STARS mission statement is its commitment to education of children in the fine arts disciplines, including; music, singing, dancing, acting and even painting of sets. The mission statement is expressed this way: Sunriver STARS Community Theater, a 501 © (3) nonprofit corporation, is a community-based performing arts organization providing quality, familyfriendly entertainment and educational opportunities for Sunriver and the surrounding communities. One of the groups which we especially desire to reach with education is the local children of south Deschutes County. With this in mind, we have made plans to provide an annual Kids Drama Camp in the spring where drama terminology, stage decorum, character development and acting skills are taught over a period of several weekly sessions. Music education, especially with singing skill activities will also be included. In order to provide this kind of program for children we have received two grants; one from the Sunriver La Pine Rotary and one from the Oregon Arts Commission. We are extremely grateful for these grants.

It’s a Dog’s Life


ere in Sunriver we understand that your pets are a part of your family. If you are the type of traveler who would not dream of leaving your canine companion at home, then Sunriver is your pooch-perfect playground. With 50-plus miles of pathways, five miles of riverbank and a national forest next door, your dog will never run out of places to sniff and explore... and the dog walker in the family will never have to take the same path twice. Enjoy the serenity of the outdoors and allow the magic of the forest to stimulate all human and canine senses. A particularly scenic


area for walking is along the Deschutes River, and great for wildlife viewing. Keep your eyes peeled for owl, osprey, otter, elk and deer. Dogs are Welcome Here Whether you are staying in a vacation rental or the resort, you will be able to find many dog-friendly accommodations. Most rental properties are dog friendly. 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. Sunriver Village offers al fresco dining opportunities as well as many dog-friendly shops, and Sunriver Sports rents bike trailers to give your furry family member a fun ride. If you didn’t bring a pet essential, 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 Abbott Trading Co. in the Sunriver Business Park will surely have what you need. Dogs are allowed off-leash on 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. 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. Sparks Lake is a great choice, and the large Crane Prairie and Wickiup Reservoirs are inviting to dogs of all shapes and sizes.

Floating on the Deschutes River A popular activity in Sunriver is a leisurely float down the Deschutes River. Canoes, kayaks and rafts are available for rent at the Sunriver Marina, from Good2Go, Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe, Sunriver ToyHouse Toys or Four Seasons Recreational Outfitters in the Sunriver Village. You can begin your float at Harper’s Bridge. Float down the Deschutes River until you reach a pull out site where you can be picked up and driven back to your car. Dogs are always welcome to enjoy the ride with their humans and test their sea legs. Winter Activities with Your dog Edison Sno-Park and Wanoga snow park are two family and dog-friendly activity areas where your canine companion can safely enjoy exploring the snow with you. These snow parks offer a range of groomed and natural areas for snowshoeing and cross country skiing options for all abilities. Have you ever tried skijoring? It feels like cross country skiing with superpowers. Skijoring, or cross country skiing while being pulled by a dog, makes every glide a little longer and every effort a little easier. It’s great fun for those who already enjoy cross country skiing and it’s a wonderful way to commune with your four legged friend in the beautiful winter environment. So plan your visit to Sunriver with Fido included and get ready to create some memories for every member of your family. When it comes to dog-friendly fun, we aim to please all year long.

First. Best. Always.

The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up the 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of “Service Above Self.” Individual Rotary clubs belong to Rotary International. Individual members, or Rotarians, belong to a club. The club is where most of the meaningful service work is carried out. Clubs can be engaged in their communities and internationally. The Mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity and advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through its fellowship of business, professional and community leaders. Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are secular and apolitical. You can join a Rotary Fellowship to network with others


who share your vocation, avocation, hobby or interest. By participating in international activities, you become part of a global network of professionals seeking world peace and understanding. All Rotarians are united in a global campaign to eradicate polio. Polio Plus is Rotary’s flagship program. Along with the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, Rotary is spear heading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Rotary’s programs for students and youth change the lives of those who participate. Through these programs young people can earn scholarships, learn leadership skills and engage in cultural exchanges. As community volunteers we reach out, we build, we support and organize. We work locally and globally. We Take Action! If you would like to join our local Rotary Club, complete information on our weekly meetings, programs and membership details can be found on the website:

Interpretive Trail Signs


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.

Why I

Choose Sunriver?

f you are looking for a serene environment surrounded by sprawling acres of natural landscapes and picturesque vistas, Sunriver might be the perfect location for you.

Sunriver has about 4,200 home sites nestled among the trees, bike paths and numerous roundabouts that make driving around the resort community an interesting experience. About a quarter of residents choose to live in Sunriver year-around, with the rest being vacation homes. The Sunriver real estate market has proven to be strong and steady for several decades, and is a great place for retiring or investing in vacation rentals. The area offers a wide variety of single-family homes, condominiums, cabins and cottages in a quiet resort setting. Although Sunriver is unincorporated, it is selfgoverned and has all of the necessary services including a fire station, police department, post office, medical facilities and more. The Sunriver real estate agents and title companies share a love of Central Oregon and an understanding of their clients and the community with an unrivaled local experience and expertise that make home buying and selling a smooth and successful process.

technology and recreation. A healthy mix of established companies and up and coming entrepreneurs has created a connected, energized business community that is ambitious and producing results. With an influx of capital and new ideas, solid infrastructure, the expansion of higher education and a coordinated effort by EDCO and Central Oregon cities and counties to support economic development, the region is making yet another leap forward. The workforce is skilled, educated and growing, and the migration of corporate transplants from the nation’s biggest cities is bolstering the already impressive bench strength in a diverse array of professional disciplines. People are hungry to move here and even more determined to stay. As an employer, this means easier recruitment and better retention. With the impending expansion of the Oregon State University Cascades campus, Central Oregon Community College’s robust programs and numerous other workforce training initiatives, employees have a myriad of avenues for ongoing professional development. Central Oregon has some of the lowest operating costs in the Pacific Northwest, including very affordable industrial land costs, available build-tosuit commercial real estate, tax abatement, enterprise zones and fast track permitting. And the region’s cities are eager to work with businesses considering the region, with creative solutions tailored to each company’s unique needs. (More on economic opportunities go to www.

Sunriver Area Chamber Relocates & Focuses on Community Contributions by DAVID CLEWETT for SR Magazine


he Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce has relocated its office to the Sunriver Business Park in an effort to focus on promoting regional area businesses, residential and economic development and to better serve the members and community of Sunriver.

Although tourism remains at the forefront for the Sunriver community, the Chamber will focus more energy on the development and success of its members and the larger community of Sunriver. In addition to being an information hub for locals and visitors, the new office with its fiber optics cable features shared work spaces and provides high speed internet access. “While the Chamber will always promote tourism related business, the Chamber will also focus on small business development. Our new office has been modeled after Bend Tech, which provides co working spaces, conference room rental and state of the art video conferencing,” said Kent Elliott, Executive Director of the Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce. Photo by William Wood

Local Information Brent Redenius & Business Center

The new space serves as an education center providing seminars and professional presentations while offering meeting and conference rooms. The Chamber intends to operate as a resource and referral center for new and small businesses and the community. Users will be charged on either a monthly or hourly bases. Two of the offices are already sub-rented to local businesses. The Chamber is a voluntary nonprofit organization comprised of businesses, community organizations and individuals who are dedicated to enhancing and promoting the economic vitality of the Sunriver community.

Building, Remodeling & Maintaining Sunriver has unique environmental conditions that heighten some elements of home maintenance. At 4,200 feet above sea level and located on the fringe of Oregon’s High Desert, the dry air, intense sunlight, warm summers and cold winters are tough on homes. Plan on more painting or staining in Sunriver than ever before. Use high quality paints and stains to make the job last longer. Those wonderful hot summer days spent frolicking in the pool or on the river, followed by blissfully cool nights when everyone sleeps great, mean something entirely else to buildings. Those daily 40 plus degree temperature variations result in expansion and contraction of roofs, siding materials and decks. Use only the highest quality building materials and inspect decks and

exterior staircases annually for stability. Fire-resistant roofing materials are required and help protect homes from drifting embers. Sunriver receives an average of five feet a snow a year and some winters a lot more, which is great for skiing and snowball fights, but another environmental extreme Sunriver homes endure. Roofs in Sunriver are built to support at least 50 pounds, per square inch of weight. That’s roughly four feet of dry snow, two feet of packed snow or four inches of ice. In heavy snowfall winters, it may be necessary to remove snow from roofs to prevent ice dams which can allow water to seep through ceilings and walls. Winter temperatures in Sunriver regularly drop below freezing and occasionally below zero during cold snaps. During cold months, you want to be certain your home heating system is functioning and keeping pipes from freezing. If you can’t do it yourself, it’s a good idea to have someone inspect your Sunriver home in winter to ensure the heat is on and pipes aren’t leaking.

Sunriver has significant freezethaw cycles that cause cracks to form in driveway and walkway surfaces. Climate-appropriate construction techniques and seal coating helps prolong the life of these items. Having a home in the woods forces everyone to think about forest fires and hazard trees. The homeowner association has an extensive ladder fuels reduction program that reduces fire danger and improves forest health in the commonly owned forest areas of Sunriver.

Many people who buy homes in Sunriver come into the ownership experience with plans to add a room, deck or hot tub. Some plan on partial or complete teardowns and remodels. Know up front that any exterior work (including decks, staircases, railings, privacy screens, painting or replacement of roofing materials) must be reviewed and approved by the SROA Community Development Department. This department functions much like a city or county development department with a foal of ensuring homes blend into the environment and are compatible with one another, which is why there are no purple houses or pink flamingoes in Sunriver code violations. Then it’s up to the buyer and seller to decide how to address compliance issues, if any, before the sale is completed. Visit the SROA Community Development Department and share your ideas about what you’d like to do. Staff will, in turn, help homeowners understand the rules that regulate the process, provide samples of permitted paint colors, recommended construction material and gladly answer questions about home maintenance and improvement in this special place called Sunriver. Information: 541-593-6645 or visit and search for Community Development Department.
