DescriptionSunriver is a planned resort and residential community built among the pinewoods and meadows beside the Deschutes River. Development began in 1968 on the site of Camp Abbott, a World War II-era Army Corps of Engineers training facility. The 3,300-acre complex now has approximately 2,800 homes and more than 850 condominiums. There are visitors year-round, but in summer the population can grow to nearly 20,000.
The lone vestige of Sunriver's military legacy is the Great Hall, built in 1943 as a Corps of Engineers officers' club. It features native logs and stone and is an architectural showcase of Oregon's forest products heritage. The hall is now used for business meetings, corporate retreats and conventions.
Sunriver offers recreation activities for all tastes and capabilities. Golf is a big draw in summer. There are some 37 miles of paved trails for mountain bikes and hiking. Other summer activities include tennis (24 courts), horseback riding, river float trips, canoeing and kayaking. Fishing opportunities abound along the Deschutes River. Winter attracts cross-country skiers, and visitors can also enjoy snowmobiling, tobogganing, ice fishing and ice-skating.
