WELCOME TO EAST LAKE RESORT – “The Unique Oregon Experience”

In 1915, East Lake Resort opened its doors on the shores of East Lake in the caldera of Newberry Volcano – the largest volcano in the Cascade Range. Rebuilt in 1942, our current resort is a full service facility 45 miles southeast of Bend, Oregon. Our remoteness gives you the chance to unplug and unwind  in the heart of one of Central Oregon’s most scenic regions.

Classic cabins, tent sites, RV sites and watercraft (from paddle boards to pontoons and fishing boats) are available for rent. Randy, our experienced central Oregon fishing expert will be available for guided fishing trips on East Lake throughout the 2020 season.  The Blue Duck Grill provides a relaxing atmosphere for a pub style meal. The on-site general store and tackle shop will take care of your last minute camping and fishing needs. The gift shop gives guests an opportunity to shop for a unique gift or clothing item.

The 1050 acre lake, at 6,400 feet altitude, is known as one of the finest lake fisheries in Oregon as featured in BestFishingInAmerica.com.  Brown Trout, Kokanee, and Rainbow Trout are available for harvest throughout the season.  For an up to date fishing report look to our friends at Fly and Field in Bend.

Grant McOmie’s “Travel Oregon” and Brian Jennings “Great Outdoors” travel shows have featured the history, scenery and fishing of the Newberry Caldera and East Lake.

Before you visit East Lake Resort please remember that the resort is located in the beautiful caldera of the Newberry Volcanic Monument. There is very limited cell services and no access to wifi. Our communication with civilization is limited to a 1940’s landline phone service.

Bruce Bronson has owned the resort since March 2014. Bruce’s longtime business partner, Rob has retired to Arizona, but no worries as he will be making appearances at the resort throughout the season. The 2020 season will be managed by Chris and Anna Bronson.  We welcome you to spend a few hours or a few days enjoying the unique Oregon experience.
