  • The Sunriver Observatory is a great source of information and the people there love what they are doing. I was just there volunteering with my 20" telescope and can’t thank the people running this observatory enough. We had a great night and so many people enjoyed all the telescopes which are many. This is a must place to visit to see the stars. For the small fee which keeps the place up and running you get to look through scopes from 4” to 30” reflectors.
  • Fascinating! The closest I've ever been to the Stars. Highly recommended if you are near or staying at Sunriver.
  • It's an awesome place to view the stars, planets and yesterday when I went they had two different views of the sun! ☀️ Very cool! Please leave a donation.
  • This is one of those rare activities the whole family can enjoy. The dark skies of Sunriver make for excellent viewing and the knowledgeable staff really make the skies come alive through their multiple telescopes and star tours. This is the biggest public observatory in North America. It's focused not on research but on public programs and outreach. That's all they do and they do it better than anyone else.
  • Amazing experience. Such knowledgeable and passionate guides.
