La Pine State Park offers opportunities for camping, cabin stays, yurt stays, fishing, swimming, picnicking, hiking and boating.
La Pine State Park offers quiet campgrounds next to lakes brimming with trout and exceptional skiing during the winter months. Abundant wildlife and beautiful vistas are also what make this park a one of a kind.
The park is also home to Oregon’s largest ponderosa pine. Nicknamed “Big Red,” the tree is 162′ tall, 28.9′ around and may be in excess of 500 years old.
Vital stats: The park provides 95 full hookup campsites, and 50 electrical campsites (maximum site 85 feet; group reservable). The park also offers 5 cabins and 3 yurts for overnight stays.
: Climate in central and eastern Oregon varies greatly depending on elevation. The high elevations receive much more precipitation and colder temperatures. Much of the precipitation comes from October to April, mostly in the form of snow in the higher elevations. Winter temperatures can drop well below zero degrees Fahrenheit. Late spring, summer and early autumn tend to bring clear, sunny days, with warm to hot temperatures at the low elevations and moderate temperatures at the higher elevations. Summer afternoon thunderstorms are not uncommon.
Location: La Pine State Park is located in Central Oregon, off U.S. Highway 97, 27 miles southwest of Bend, near the town of La Pine.
