LaPine State Park, located next to the Deschutes River, is the ideal spot for swimming, boating, picnicking, and hiking. Fly-casting for brown and rainbow trout in the Deschutes River is also a favorite pastime. The campground is the perfect home base for visiting attractions in the area, including the Newberry National Volcanic Monument. The park is also home to Oregon's largest ponderosa pine. Nicknamed "Big Red," the tree is 191' tall, with a circumference of 326 inches, and may be in excess of 500 years old. It is also recognized as an Oregon Heritage Tree.
