Newberry Group Camp Site

  • Boasting some of central Oregon's most spectacular scenery, Newberry Group Campground is the only exclusive group site area within the Newberry National Volcanic Monument. Located along the south shore of Paulina Lake in Deschutes National Forest, this site offers a unique geological glimpse into the area's one-of-a-kind landscape and volcanic activity.

    The unique location of Newberry Group Campground offers outdoor enthusiasts fantastic opportunities for bird watching, boating, bicycling, sightseeing and hiking throughout the year. The Paulina Lakeshore loop trail passes thru this campground and offers a 7 mile stroll around Paulina Lake. Bird watchers may catch a glimpse of bald eagles and osprey nesting nearby. Common loon, Grebe, Tundra swan, Eurasian wigeon, American wigeon, Ring-necked duck, Goldeneye, and Hooded Merganser are lured to Paulina Lake as well. Visitors can drive or hike to the summit of nearby Paulina Peak to watch soaring raptors such as golden eagle, turkey vulture, prairie falcon and red-tailed hawk.
