Representing Oregon's greatest secret

Welcome to Lake County Oregon!

Our Chamber offices are located in Lakeview, our County Seat. With an elevation of 4,800 ft (1,500m), Lakeview has the distinction of being the Tallest Town in Oregon!

We are proud of our friendly communities and pristine wilderness. Our residents are some of the friendlist people you will ever meet! Add to that the pristine wilderness, which is Lake County, and you are certain to have many memorable experiences. 

Geographically, the third largest County in the state, Lake County is waiting to make your travel experience a great one. We welcome everyone to visit and enjoy this area as much as we do. Don't forget your cameras, fishing gear, hiking gear, canoes, other boats, swim gear, ski gear, jet skis, skidoos, off-road motorcycles, quads, touring bikes, mountain bikes, whew... you get the picture. So much to do.... so little time.

Please click here to enjoy a video of wildlife
and natural beauty found in the Oregon Outback!

One can experience the vast expanse of the high desert, the solitude of mountain forests, crystal clear lakes, streams, waterfalls and hot springs... all in one day! It's a great place to live and raise a family-- call the chamber for a relocation packet, and consider moving to the friendliest town in Oregon.

It's a photographer's paradise with everything from mustangs, wild burros (left over from the gold mining days), cougar, antelope, big horn sheep, elk and so much more. Our lakes and streams are loaded with fish and we enjoy an average of 300 sunny days every year! Big Horn Sheep
The Orgeon Outback National Scenic Byway provides a wonderful chance to experience the best of the west. This 170 mile long drive is a showcase of breath-taking landscapes untouched by civilization, with an unparalleled view of wildlife. 
The Basin & Range Birding Trails offer a rare opportunity to see over 250 species of birds. Stop into the Lake County Chamber to pick up a birding map at no cost. Or sign up for a Road Scholar program and join the "Bird's Eye View of the West" tour.  Yellow Bird
Hang gliding Hang-Gliding Capitol of the West, Lakeview hosts competitions every year in July around the Fourth. Participants from all over the world launch from five sites to enjoy the World's best thermals!

Oregon State's gemstone is the Sunstone, also known as the Plush Diamond. Sunstones are only found in Lake County and Harney County, Oregon and can be mined or picked up in the Public Sunstone Collecting Site or one of our local mining operations near Plush, Oregon, in Lake County's Warner Valley. When cut, sunstones make unique and beautiful jewelry.

Stop into the Chamber Visitor Center for more information, and for directions to the mines. Along with sunstones, general rock hounding is a popular hobby here. We have unique, rare rocks and our very own rock shops: one in Lakeview, one in New Pine Creek, and one in Plush. Besides sunstones, you can also find opals, jaspar, agate, thunder eggs and obsidian needles.  Deeded owners have locally-owned mining sites. Contact the Lake County Chamber of Commerce for more information on the mines. 

North Lake County is home to Crack in the Ground, Hole in the Ground, the Lost Forest, miles of sand dunes, and Derricks Cave just to name a few. Here is a photo of Crack in the Ground, courtesy of the Lakeview BLM.
