Sunriver, Oregon is a resort community and popular vacation destination about 15 miles south of Bend and less than 20 miles from Mt. Bachelor. The population was 1,393 at the time of the 2010 census but grows to over four times that during peak seasons. Sunriver boasts three golf courses, The Woodlands, The Meadows and Crosswater Club. Crosswater was voted one of “America’s 100 Greatest Courses” and has played host to many junior, amateur and professional tournaments.
The elevation in Sunriver is 4,164 feet, about 500 feet higher than Bend and therefore often experiences more snow fall. The average snow fall in is 49 inches per year. In the summer, the weather is dry and warm, but not hot. The average monthly temperature is at its peak in July and is still just around 82 degrees.
The 22 acre water park, the SHARC (Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic and Recreation Center) opened in 2012 and is a popular attraction, especially for kids.
