La Pine, OR

French for the pine.

La Pine is a rural community located in southern Deschutes County near the Newberry Volcanic National Monument and Paulina Peak, home of East Lake and Paulina Lake (Where the state record Brown Trout was found) The recreation rich Cascade Lakes region of Central Oregon surrounds La Pine. There is abundant fishing, hiking and boating at any one of the many nearby lakes in the summer.

It is a growing town that just got it's first stop light. Woo!

La Pine is the last place for 24 hour gas until you reach Klamath Falls to the south or Alturas if heading east. When I drove through after 10:00 PM in July, 2005, the only open stations were at the north end of town. We recommend that if you are driving at night to fully tank up before you pass this town. It's best to have a full tank of gas before heading down OR-31 and if you have any other vehicle problems, this is the best place to find a solution for over 100 miles.

Sentry Market is open from 7am to 10pm.
