Fishing, Wildlife, Attractions & More – Junipers Reservoir RV Resort

This is courtesy of our friends at Junipers Reservoir RV Resort.

Located in the heart of an 8,000 acre working cattle ranch, Junipers Reservoir RV Resort is the perfect jumping off point for touring scenic Lake County, Oregon. From one of the 40 spacious pull through sites, visitors can experience much of the natural splendor that Lake County has to offer without ever leaving the property. But you may wish to venture off on a more adventurous journey to a variety of nearby events and attractions.

Enjoy hot showers, clean bathrooms, laundry facilities, propane barbeques, and free wireless internet after a full day of exploring. Resort activities include hiking and biking trails, driving tours, bird watching, wildlife viewing, rock hounding, free fishing, horseshoes, and volleyball.

If you can’t get enough of the antelope and mule deer on the ranch, check out nearby Hart Mountain Antelope Refuge for a day, or stop by the Summer Lake Wildlife Area (www.stateparks.com) for extended birding opportunities.

Are you crazy about rocks? After scouring the ranch for treasures such as agate and petrified wood, spend a day collecting sunstones, obsidian, or opals at nearby mines. After hiking or biking to the old Indian campgrounds to hunt for arrowheads and artifacts, take a driving tour of the pristine petroglyphs in the area.

If you are looking for a truly unique experience, check out some of Lake County’s natural wonders, including Fort Rock State Park, Crack in the Ground, Abert Rim, and the Old Perpetual Geyser. But you may prefer to catch as many trout as you can eat right here at the resort without even buying a fishing license. True fishermen will want to visit some of our other local fishing holes as well. And those of you who think you’ve got what it takes to win will want to try your hand at the Chewaucan Challenge in June, an annual fishing derby on the Chewaucan River.

One of Lake County’s most valuable resources is its geothermal energy, which you can take advantage of by visiting nearby hot springs for a healing dip or by perusing the perennials at the local geothermal greenhouse. Speaking of shopping, the town of Lakeview, the seat of Lake County, also offers a Saturday market, antiques, and a full service meat locker offering Country Natural Beef, the very same beef that is grazed right here on the ranch surrounding the resort. The Lakeview Lockers also carries products from Stringers Orchard, a wild plum winery in nearby New Pine Creek, California.

Special occasions in Lakeview, also known as Oregon’s Tall Town because of its elevation, include Fourth of July fireworks at the fairgrounds, a hang gliding festival, and an antique car show. But the biggest event of the year by far is the annual Lake County Fair and Roundup, held every year on Labor Day weekend. Don’t miss the parade through town on Monday morning! Afterwards, spend a sunny day on the golf course, or a rainy day touring the museums. Or, simply relax in the serenely peaceful environment at the resort.

Junipers Reservoir RV Resort offers daily, weekly, monthly, and group rates. For more information on the resort, please visit www.junipersrv.com. For more information on Lake County Oregon, visit the Lake County Chamber of Commerce website.
