Summer Lake Hot Springs is a rustic resort located deep in the central region of Oregon known as the “Oregon Outback’. It is located about 90 minutes from Bend, Oregon. This is an ideal place to escape for a couple of days of relaxing; walking, hiking and of course soaking. There is no Wi-Fi here and the cell service is patchy – so it is real getaway from the daily routines.
Fort Rock State Park – Like a desert mirage, this National Natural Landmark rises huge out of the barren, immense flatness of Oregon’s high desert.

It’s an old tuff ring set in what was a shallow sea in prehistoric times.
