East Lake is located in the Deschutes National Forest and is one of the twin lakes that occupy the Newberry Crater, or caldera, in Central Oregon. The city of La Pine is located nearby the lake, as well. Visitors to the lake can enjoy fishing, boating, hiking, camping, nature viewing, and much more.
The latest eruption of the Newberry Volcano created the crater that holds the two twin lakes, East Lake and Paulina Lake. Both lakes are naturally occuring lakes with the primary inflow being snowfall, rainfall, and hot springs. Because of the Newberry Volcano, East Lake is a primary location for scenic views and geological enthusiasts.
