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.  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.

Bruce Bronson and Rob and Sandy Morrison have owned the resort since March 2014 and welcome you to spend a few hours or few days enjoying the unique Oregon experience.

September 17, 2018

Labor Day at the resort was a success with outstanding weather, good fishing, and an afternoon of Bluegrass Music from Burning Moonlight.  Now is the time for late summer fishermen or visitors that want a more quiet experience to visit the lake and our waterside resort.

Our cabins, RV/Tent Sites, General Store, Blue Duck Grill and boat rentals are OPEN for the entire month of September with adjusted operating hours for resort facilities set daily from 8:00am to 6:00pm.  (Except for September 19th when we the grill will close at 2pm for our employee party) Closures of US Forest Service campgrounds will NOT effect the operations at East Lake Resort.

Mornings have been crisp and the lake is flat and peaceful before the usual afternoon breeze picks up.  Enjoy a nice warming fire on our patio with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. Days are still warm with clear skies and highs in the 60-70’s.  Evenings are a bit cool but still simply delightful.  Imbibe with a glass of wine on the lawn as you take in one of our National Geographic worthy sunsets.

After a spotty August, fishing continues to improve with a majority of those fish being larger than average.  The Kokanee are starting to turn and are still biting.

Fires are allowed in designated fire pits at our Tent sites, RV park and Cabins. Firewood is available for sale at the General Shop.

Come up and enjoy the Lake!
