Towering forests of Ponderosa pines, snowy Cascade Mountains,
pristine rivers, lakes and streams, sun drenched days and star-filled
western nights - this is the special beauty of Sisters, Oregon.
Sisters, elevation 3,100 feet, is located in western Deschutes
County, just east of the Cascade Mountains in central Oregon.
Once a lumber producing town, Sisters is now known as the Gateway
to the Cascades. The downtown area has been transformed, and today
Sisters is recognized as a unique place to shop with its many
specialty stores and galleries.
Whether you enjoy rodeos, mountain climbing, fly fishing, camping,
hiking, mountain biking, golfing, rafting, skiing or snowmobiling
you'll find it in the Sisters area. For an escape to the Wild
West, Sisters is the annual site of the PRCA sanctioned Sisters
Rodeo. On the edge of town, the Deschutes National Forest offers
a 1.6 million acre playground laced with miles and miles of trails,
wet and wild rivers, and scenic drives and vistas. Fly fishermen
will enjoy fishing on the Metolius River, home to rainbow trout,
Dolly Varden (bull trout), and Kokane salmon. Hiking in the Three
Sisters Wilderness Area is a scenic marvel. Lush alpine meadows
and pristine lakes dot the landscape, and in early summer, beautiful
wildflowers display a palette of nature's color. Golfers will
be in paradise on the course at Black Butte Ranch. Just 10 miles
west of Sisters, the Ranch features some of the best golfing in
Oregon, surrounded by outstanding views of Black Butte and the
Sisters' 1880's theme town charm offers a wide range of adventures
and experiences for visitors. Visit Sisters, where old-fashioned
hospitality lives on.
