Three separate group sites offer visitors opportunities for both lakeside and forest camping. Picnic areas, shoreline trails, and stunning views of the lake give visitors the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. The parking area and roads throughout the campground are paved.
Visitors can explore wilderness areas, wild and scenic rivers, lakes and reservoirs, and approximately 1,600 miles of trails throughout Deschutes National Forest and the adjacent Ochoco National Forest. Lava Lands Visitor Center in nearby Bend, Oregon, offers visitors the opportunity to learn about the diverse landscape and history of the area through interpretive programs. Visitors can explore the Lava River Cave, also located in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument. At a length of 5,211 ft. (1,588 m), the northwest section of the cave is the longest continuous lava tube in Oregon.
Paulina Lake is located within the collapsed calderaof Newberry Volcano. Nearly five miles in diameter, this caldera encircles the basins of Paulina Lake, and its twin, East Lake. Covering an area of 1,531 acres, Paulina Lake, the larger and deeper of the two, plunges to depths of 250 feet. Neither lake receives water from an inlet stream, but instead, are fed solely by rain, snowmelt, and hot springs. Paulina Creek drains the lake and has chiseled a narrow gorge through the caldera's west wall creating a remarkable twin waterfall. Thermal vents and hot springs along the lake's northeast edge help create a highly productive ecosystem. Wetlands, diverse forests, and rocky slopes near the campground provide a necessary habitat for shorebirds, racoon, deer, bats, and the occasional black bear. In September, the outlet of Paulina Lake may become choked with kokanee salmon swimming to spawn in Paulina Creek.
The unique location of Newberry Group Campground offers outdoor enthusiasts fantastic opportunities for bird watching, boating, bicycling, sightseeing and hiking throughout the year. The Paulina Lakeshore loop trail passes thru this campground and offers a 7 mile stroll around Paulina Lake. Bird watchers may catch a glimpse of bald eagles and osprey nesting nearby. Common loon, Grebe, Tundra swan, Eurasian wigeon, American wigeon, Ring-necked duck, Goldeneye, and Hooded Merganser are lured to Paulina Lake as well. Visitors can drive or hike to the summit of nearby Paulina Peak to watch soaring raptors such as golden eagle, turkey vulture, prairie falcon and red-tailed hawk.

What type of RV should I choose?
Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.
You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.
