It's a really pretty place. We stayed at a campground by Paulina lake. The campground was fine but the bathrooms were poorly maintained. Parents note: The dirt at the campground is a fine powder. EVERYTHING was covered in it and the kids were so dirty...More

Be sure to walk to top of obsidian flow. Nice lakes for fishing. Good food. See the waterfall. Great camping.

Cinder cones, lava tubes and even an obsidian flow! Stop and learn about the volcanic history of Oregon! The lava tubs are even considered one of the 101 Best Geosites to see in the United States.

We hiked Paulina Lake trail. Bring insect repellent- the mosquitoes are bad, but it's a good rugged but not steep hike around a pretty lake. Not for young children or those with mobility issues.

we enjoyed going here and learning about the area. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. I walked away with a better understanding of this area as well as the volcanoes in the area.

The Obsidian flow can get hot in summer but has great views! Paulina Lake is beautiful and we have rented a boat there to go fishing.

You can see a lot right off of Hwy 97 at the Lava Butte exit. Lava Butte has an easy path through lava fields, preserved trees and spectacular Cascade views. There's also a great paved bike path to a river trail and paved... More
