The quaint town of Gilchrist Oregon has become a great vacation home and early retirement destination, as it lies in the heart of all central Oregon recreation. It is especially attractive to sports people who enjoy snow sports, great fishing, and all of the other high mountain lake and river sports. Willamette Ski Pass is a short distance away and is one of the few places in the state that offers night skiing, but Gilchrist is probably more popular with snowmobilers, as you don’t have to drive anywhere in the winter to access over 600 miles of groomed and marked snowmobile trails. Other activities available for the outdoor enthusiast are hiking, riding, fishing, skiing, and dog sled racing.
Another popular attraction in the area is Crater Lake. Crater Lake was formed when a massive eruption of Mount Mazama 7700 years ago caused the mountain to collapse, leaving a steaming caldera. Centuries of rain and snow filled the caldera creating Crater Lake. Crater Lake has inspired people for hundreds of years. No place else on earth combines a deep pure lake, so blue with sheer surrounding cliffs. Almost two thousand feet high with two picturesque islands and a violent volcanic past. It is a place of immeasurable beauty.
