Lakeview / Christmas Valley
320 sunny days a year beam down on Oregon’s Outback and its dramatic landscape. Travel the Oregon Outback Scenic Byway, 171 miles of natural, recreational and archaeological features, including the 2,000-foot high Abert Rim. Hart Mountain Antelope Refuge and the Summer Lake Wildlife Area offer unparalleled wildlife viewing (swans, raptors, bighorn sheep) opportunities. In Northern Lake County, you’ll find Ft. Rock State Monument, the remains of a volcano that rises 325 feet above sagebrush plains. The 10,000-acre Christmas Valley Sand Dunes offer more recreational opportunities. Enjoy Western hospitality in Lakeview (aka the hang-gliding capital of the West).
