One of our favorite places to take visitors. Really nice visiter center. The walk around the crater rim is very scenic and since they have replace some of the signs, informative.

We love Newberry! Waterfalls, hiking, lakes, boating, fishing, camping - lots to do! Paulina Falls are beautiful and very close to the road so easy to see even for the mobility challenged. Both Paulina and East Lake are nice for swimming, boating, fishing and beach-lounging. The Paulina Plunge hike is awesome if you can get there before the tour buses... More

We came to hike up Paulina Peak after finding it highly recommended in the book "Bend Overall" by Scott Cook. He calls the view "The best in Oregon", a rather optimistic claim, but after the hike, we couldn't help but agree. We went back a month later with out-of-town guests, about the highest compliment we could pay to a destination... More

We've traveled all over the world but the Obsidian Flow is one of the most unique landscapes we've seen. The park was closed for the season but the ranger suggested we visit the flow, Paulina Falls and the Peak. What an interesting place!

There is a hike through the lava beds, a fire tower on the butte, an area to go down to the river, and the lava cave. It is well worth it.

The obsidian flow walk was amazing - wow. Not easy, and not for those with flip-flops or dogs (it's glass!), but really interesting. The drive around the lakes was pretty ho-hum, but the drive up to Paulina Peak was so worth it.

We spent the morning at the Lava Land area which includes hikes through the Lava and up a cinder cone, beautiful hikes along the Deshuetes river to waterfalls and a bike lane that stretches to Sun River. The other are consists of two lakes in the Newberry caldera. We didn't... More

I wish were had stayed in the park for more than a few hours. It would have been lovely to camp here and fish in the lakes. Even stay at their group cabin rentals. I enjoyed learning about all the volcanic activity here. Walking out on the obsidian lava flow was something I will always remember. Being from the Seattle... More
