OverviewCinder Hill Campground sits at the edge of beautiful East Lake in the caldera of Newberry Volcano. The area is part of the Newberry National Monument in Deschutes National Forest. The area is popular for its geological significance and multitude of recreational activities, making it an ideal individual and family camping excursion.
East Lake is located within the collapsed crater, or caldera of Newberry Volcano. Nearly five miles in diameter, the caldera encircles the basins of East Lake and Paulina Lake. East Lake covers 1,044 acres and is 180 feet at its deepest point.
Visitors can take advantage of boating, kayaking, swimming and fishing on East Lake. A boat ramp is located in the campground, and the lake has a 10 mph speed limit.
Cinder Hill Campground offers several sites close to the shore or within easy walking distance to the beach. It is an ideal campground for those hauling trailers, but it also has plenty of sites perfect for tents. Sites are equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Flush toilets and drinking water are also available.
Big Obsidian Flow Trail offers a 1-mile interpretive trail that climbs up and onto this impressive lava flow of obsidian (black volcanic glass) and pumice. The Big Obsidian Flow is 1300 years old, the youngest lava flow in Oregon.
