Newberry National Volcanic Monument - Halfway between Bend and Sunriver, the area's geographic wonders begin to unfold. Open seasonally, the Lava Land Visitor Center at Lava Butte provides a great introduction to the region’s volcanic landscape through interpretive displays and self-guided tours. Travel a few miles south and you’ll find Newberry Crater, an 18-mile caldera containing East Lake, Paulina Lake, Paulina Falls and the country’s largest obsidian lava flow. Newberry National Volcanic Monument was designated on November 5, 1990, to protect the area around the Newberry Volcano in the United States. It was created within the boundaries of the Deschutes National Forest and is managed by the U.S. Forest Service. It includes 50,000 acres (20,000 ha) of lakes, lava flows, and spectacular geologic features in central Oregon.
