While there is no bad time to enjoy the beauty of Sunriver, Oregon, we highly suggest the extended Labor Day Weekend. This often forgotten holiday is the perfect time to celebrate the end of summer with an exciting trip to Sunriver. While you may not find giant events, you will find plenty to keep you entertained and relaxed all weekend long. Here are the best Sunriver activities to celebrate Labor Day:
Check Out the Oregon Observatory
Make the most of the clear night skies in Sunriver by checking out the Oregon Observatory. You will be able to see even the most distant stars under the dark night sky of Oregon. The Oregon Observatory is also not some simple telescope but instead the largest astronomy viewing facility in the entire country. Previous visitors have been able to see meteor showers, distant nebulas, and binary stars with the best view that can be achieved. Check out the Oregon Observatory at 57245 River Road during the hours of 9:00pm to 11:00pm from Tuesdays to Sundays. Entry starts at $10 per adult and $8 per child.
Grab Your Rental Gear at the Sunriver Marina
Make sure to dip into the river before summer ends by taking a visit to the Sunriver Marina. You will be able to obtain a variety of rental boats and gear, allowing you to fully explore the river. We recommend renting a kayak for everyone in the family or a canoe for a relaxing float down the river. This is one of the most exciting Sunriver activities!
Hike Up to Benham Falls
Labor Day Weekend is the perfect time to check out all the popular hiking trails without the large crowds. The trail to Benham Falls is perhaps the most popular with gorgeous views and an easy trail that even beginners can enjoy. The trail will take you along the Deschutes River that is rushing downstream, providing ample opportunities for rafting. There is even plenty of room on the trail for you to bring the mountain bike and ride your way to the falls. The trail is approximately 6.4 miles long but easy enough for the kids to join in on the fun!
