Sunriver Resort with Kids

Does family travel utopia exist?  Yes, it’s in central Oregon.

Deciding where to go on a family vacation isn’t easy.  You don’t have much time off, so you have to make it count.  You also want to save money and have a great time.  One place that consistently checks all these boxes is Sunriver Resort in central Oregon.

Paradise for families

Located on the Deschutes River at the base of the Cascade Mountains, the resort is physically beautiful.  It’s a safe, beautiful, affordable paradise for families. Once you get over the fact that it’s a planned community (and not a “real” town), you’ll enjoy every single minute you spend here.

There are miles and miles of bike paths through the forests and along the river and wildlife everywhere you look. You can go river rafting. You can enroll your kids in drop-in tennis lessons. You can go on trail rides. There are divine playgrounds. Children 7 and older can take horseback riding lessons. There are kids camps. The pools have water slides and “dive in” movies.  It’s a year-round destination too, and I defy anyone to have a bad time here.


You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to accommodations, but if you stay in one of the resort rooms, cabins, or condos you get such niceties as access to the spa, guaranteed tee times, and discounts on resort owned recreation.

Whether you choose a Lodge room or a separate vacation rental, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the high quality of the construction, furnishings, and details.  This is real rustic luxury, not the much more usual cabin schlock.

Book through Family Getaway
