5 Aquatic Things to Do in or Near Sisters

Not only is our Sisters resort home to incredible golf courses, but our grounds are also home to Phalarope Lake. This means you can enjoy incredible water activities both on and off the property. 

  1. Go paddling along Phalarope Lake. You can rent canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards from the Lakeside Pool. Rentals are available for 45 minutes, which gives you plenty of time to go exploring.
  2. You can also try your hand at fly fishing. Purchase your license online, and stop by the Lakeside Activity Center to find the rest of the necessary equipment. We even offer free fly-fishing clinics on Saturday mornings during the summer. 
  3. For a thrilling day out on the water, book your spot on a whitewater rafting adventure. There are a number of reputable guides to choose from, including Sun Country Tours, Ouzel Outfitters, and RiverStone Rafting.
  4. Aquatic fun doesn’t have to mean lakes and rivers. It also includes our five swimming pools. We offer both indoor and outdoor spots, which means you can go for a dip no matter what Mother Nature’s doing.
  5. For a water-focused activity that doesn’t require you to get in the water, hike to area waterfalls. Make your way to the Sahalie and Koosah Falls inside Willamette National Forest, or discover Linton Falls in the Three Sisters Wilderness Area.
