Sunriver is a planned private residential and resort community 15 miles south of Bend in Deschutes County. Located at the base of the Cascade Mountains, Sunriver’s 3,300 acres wind along the eastern side of the Deschutes River. The area was the site of Camp Abbot, a World War II training facility, and was later named by developers John Gray and Donald McCallum. The first condominiums were built in 1968 in conjunction with the completion of Sunriver Lodge and a year later the master plan was completed and developers began selling lots.
The community is home to more than 4,000 privately-owned residences and has a permanent population of approximately 1,700, though during peak vacation season it may swell to upwards of 20,000. Sunriver consists of residential areas, recreational facilities, a commercial development known as Sunriver Village Mall, and Sunriver Resort. The mall offers a variety of business and services, including restaurants, retail shops, and vacation rental and property management companies. - http://www.sunriver-resort.com/central-oregon-resort-overview.php
