Make a Splash at the BRAND NEW Cove Aquatic Center | Sunriver Resort | Oregon

Sunriver Resort, just south of Bend, Oregon, is one of the most popular resorts in Central Oregon – and for great reason! With plenty of guestrooms and suites, as well as condos and vacation homes, there’s something for families of every size AND budget. There’s plenty to do in and around Sunriver (and we’ll cover all of that in a future post) but one of the main draws at the resort is the brand new Cove Aquatic Center.

Outdoor pool at the Cove Aquatic Center

Starting outside, the outdoor pool is GORGEOUS, especially the stonework! The pool was nice and warm which was great since the outdoor temps were a bit on the cool side when we visited!

The outdoor waterslide was a favorite for our crew, but beware, the water in “The Plunge” is COLD, just like the natural waterfalls found in the Sunriver area!! As soon as we dropped our stuff on our chairs, the kids beelined for this slide – and then went on it over, and over, and over!

One of the best resort pools in Central Oregon

Can you think of a better place to relax on a sunny day in central Oregon?! While pool reservations were required when we visited, effective July 3, reservations are no longer required and the pool is available on a first-come, first-served basis for resort guests.

One of the most impressive features of the new Cove Aquatic Center are the roll-up doors on the indoor pool building (seen behind these two sweet kiddos!) allowing for an open-air concept in the warm summer months, and an indoor concept in the colder winter months.

Such an amazing view from the outdoor pool at the Cove Aquatic Center!! Sunriver Resort is located in SUCH a beautiful place!!

Cabana Rental at Cove Aquatic Center

There are three cabanas available to rent at the Cove Aquatic Center, in addition to plenty of lounge chairs surrounding the pool.

We had a cabana rental one afternoon while we were staying at Sunriver Resort, and now that I’ve been spoiled, I don’t think I can go back to pre-cabana life! Comfortable chairs, shade, and enough room for all of us to spread out! If you’re planning to spend time at the outdoor pool on a hot day, especially as crowds increase, you absolutely cannot go wrong with a cabana rental!

Cabana snacks at Sunriver Resort Central Oregon

You can order food from The Spotted Frog and have it delivered to your cabana – and we did just that! In addition to an extensive drink menu, they had a great variety of appetizers and snacks that we created a happy hour type menu from. The kids enjoyed snacking throughout the afternoon and it was a nice change from a structured meal.

Indoor Pool Cove Aquatic Center

The indoor pool facility is all-new this year at Sunriver Resort. With a zero-entry heated pool and an awesome waterslide that goes outside of the building and then back inside, there is something for everyone! NOTE: the “Cinder Cone” slide (paying homage to the cinder cones located around Central Oregon) does have a height minimum of 48inches.

Accessible from the main pool, there is a meandering “eddy“ to play in. Think small lazy river but no flotation devices are needed and there is a light current to help propel you through the “river”. This was smaller than I expected but the kids had fun going around and around and around – and not once did I hear them say anything about the size!

Also inside, and brand-new this season, you’ll find these bubblers at the zero-entry part of the pool. They’re sure to delight the little ones and even my big kids had fun playing and dancing around with Ellie in this area!
