Christmas Valley Sand Dunes
Amazing, all natural sand dunes, which are primarily made up of ash from the eruption 7,000 years ago of Mount Mazama, which is now better known as Crater Lake. The largest inland moving sand dune system in Oregon and possibly the Pacific Northwest. The dunes cover an area 9 by 5 miles in size, with the highest dunes being 60 feet.
 
Crack in the Ground
2-mile long, 10-15 foot wide basalt lava fissure, which runs from 10 to 70 feet deep into the earth. At places it is bridged by boulders and winter ice sometimes remains within its depths all year!

Hot springs abound around Lake County, and many of them are perfect for soaking.

Transportation is important to Lakeview because of its distance from more populated areas. State High 140 runs east and west of Lakeview form Winnemucca, Nevada, where it connects with Interstate 80. Together they provide a direct route from the Salt Lake City area, to the Pacific Coast at Crescent City, California. Highway 395 is the north/south interstate highway, linking us with California, Nevada, Washington, and the Canadian border. Passenger service is provided by a bus company, which also carries freight. Lakeview's local airport is located 4 miles southwest of town. There are two mile-long, illuminated runways, and 24 hour certified air taxi service.
