A TRUE NATURE LOVER’S OUTDOOR OASIS
Collins Lake Resort & Mt. Hood Skibowl have recently expanded its group of companies in acquiring Lake Simtustus RV Park & Marina. Conveniently located 58 miles east of Government Camp, less than two hours from Portland, and only one hour from Bend, the Resort is situated on an 8-mile long lake reservoir and covers 55-acres of lake-front property in Central Oregon. The location has proven to be a “Hot Spot” offering over 300 days of sun and desert warmth and averaging 14 degrees warmer than Portland this time of year, offering a whole new experience in addition to what we offer at Collins Lake Resort on Mt. Hood.
Explore Tiny Home living at its finest with luxury accommodations in our new, customized homes, specifically designed for the Lake Simtustus landscape. With so many Tiny Homes to choose from you'll be able to escape to your outdoor getaway, luxury style. All Tiny Homes are equipped with a full kitchen, panoramic window views, spacious decks, private outdoor living area with a hot tub, barbecue, and fire pits. In addition, we have a variety of RVs, 75 RV sites with full hook-ups, an on-site boat launch, and 53 boat moorage slips for rent. All guests have access to the shower, restroom, and laundry facilities. Golf carts rentals also available on site.
Fed by the Deschutes River, the lake always offers fresh, clean water with plenty of fishing (dock and boat) and several secret swimming spots. Kayaking, stand-up paddleboards (group and individual), and pontoon boat rentals are available. What more could you want?
Because of the lack of light pollution in this part of Eastern Oregon, Lake Simtustus Resort provides one of the best spots to view a tapestry of constellations, planets, and stars that are all but invisible in more urban environments. Get a glimpse of wild horses, or enjoy the beauty of over 47 species of birds, including Golden and Bald Eagles, Great Blue Heron, and Great Horned Owl, truly a bird lover's paradise. Or get out and explore the surrounding hiking trails with different rock formations and geology, known as the Volcanic Grand Canyon of Central Oregon.
