COVID19 Updates

** This page last updated June 4, 2020. **

Sunriver Is OPEN for visitors!

Most of Sunriver is open with social distancing protocols in place.  What's open and what's not?


Yes and No.  We are advising our guests that SHARC is essentially closed because access has been restricted so tightly. You do have a small chance to get into the SHARC if the owner of the home provides year round passes, but that chance is so slight we don't want any of our guests pinning their hope on the SHARC this year. Imagine 25,000 people trying to get into 200 open slots every day, that is how difficult it will be.  Passes require year long commitments and are very expensive, so most Sunriver owners do not buy them. 

For 95% of visitors this summer, unless the SHARC opens to general admission, you will not be able to access the SHARC. Things may change depending on the Governor of Oregon, but there is no telling what will happen. We just want to make you aware of how things are now so you can plan accordingly. Sunriver is a wonderful place to vacation regardless of the SHARC and we are sure your family will have an amazing time!
