Deschutes County


County Information

French-Canadian fur trappers of the Hudson’s Bay Company gave the name Riviere des Chutes (River of the Falls) to the Deschutes River, from which Deschutes County took its name. In 1916, Deschutes County was created from a part of Crook County. Deschutes County, outdoor recreation capital of Oregon, with noble, snow-capped peaks dominating the skyline to the west and the wide-open high desert extending to the east, captures the awe of locals and visitors alike. Deschutes County has grown into a bustling, exciting place where progress and growth are hallmarks. Deschutes County has experienced rapid growth largely due to its climate and year-round recreation activities. Central Oregon offers downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, fishing, hunting, hiking, rockclimbing, whitewater rafting, and golfing. Deschutes County is the host of diverse annual events including the Cascade Festival of Music, the Art Hop, Cascade Children’s Festival, Pole Pedal Paddle, Sisters Rodeo, Sunriver Sunfest and the Cascade Cycling Classic.
