Newberry National Volcanic Monument Tours

Newberry National Volcanic Monument
Located in the Deschutes National Forest, the Newberry National Volcanic Monument sprawls across 54,000 scenic acres in the high plains of Central Oregon. This natural wonder was once the site of the Newberry Volcano, which erupted over 75,000 years ago (and is still seismically active). It’s now filled with lakes, lava tubes, and geographical patterns, and visitors come to the area for hiking, camping, fishing, winter sports, and more.

The Basics
While a guided tour is the most stress-free way to get to the park, it can easily be accessed on your own by car. Visitors and locals flock to the area in the summer for outdoor activities. There are two alpine lakes that are popular for fishing, numerous hiking trails with views of the nearby mountains, and scenic campsites for those wanting to stay overnight. In the winter, there are two snow parks perfect for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing.

Things To Know Before You Go
  • The monument is a must-visit location for outdoor lovers, but notice a permit is required to access certain areas in winter. 
  • Book your campsite ahead of time online; most can be reserved at
  • Parking is available throughout the park, so you can easily drive to different landmarks.

How to Get There
Extending from the south of Bend to the south of Sunriver, and east of LaPine, the Newberry Park Volcanic Monument is easily accessible by car. The visitor center is located off of Highway 97 at the north end of the park. 

When to Get There
The park is open and accessible year-round, and there isn’t a bad time to visit. In winter, see snowcapped mountains and spend the day in a snow park, open November to April 30 (a permit is required). In summer, hike the park’s numerous trails for a daily fee.

Group Camping
For group camping within the monument, your only option is Newberry Group Campground. Sitting along the south shore of Paulina Lake, this site is popular for birdwatching, biking, and hiking. Reservations can be made online or via phone for camping June through September.
