Set among Ponderosa pine trees, La Pine is an ideal home base while exploring Oregon's famous lava lands and the wilderness areas of the nearby Cascades Mountains.
The Deschutes River, which meanders through the area, is at times so crooked it seems to meet itself. A large day-use area is located at one of these horseshoe bends, offering picnic tables, fireplaces, drinking water, and a nearby restroom.
The overnight camp has 50 sites with electricity, picnic tables, fireplaces, and water. There are also 87 sites offering full hookups for water, sewer, and electricity. La Pine State Park also offers five cabins and three yurts available.
LaPine State Park is home to Oregon's largest ponderosa pine tree, nicknamed "Big Red," the 500-year-old tree stands over 162 ft tall, and is almost 29 ft around.
Quality experiences await visitors to more than 200 state parks managed for the public by the Oregon State Parks.
