The Newberry National Monument is located in the town of La Pine. It is just 5 miles north of the Chamber office on Hwy 97. Turn Left (east) and travel up into the crater to enjoy the world’s largest obsidian flow, Paulina Lake and resort and the wonderful little East Lake resort. Both Lakes feature camping, a store, restaurant, boats, fishing, and camping or cabins to rent. Paulina is open for the winter, too and you can go into the resort on a snowmobile! This is the one thing in La Pine you do not want to miss! For information about any of the Lava Lands destinations call the Newberry National Monument Hotline number at 541-383-5700.
