The twin of the magnificent East Lake, the Paulina Lake boasts of being a crater lake in Newberry Crater, in central Oregon. It is located inside the Deschutes National Forest and was naturally built from volcanic activities from 500,000 years ago.

The Paulina Lake gets its water from melted snow, hot springs, rain water, and some seepage from the more elevated East Lake. Its deepest points run up to 250 feet and the overall area covers up to 1531 acres. It is well known among anglers as it is abundant in kokanee and brown trout. It is the home to the state record holding brownie with 27 pounds, caught in 1993.

Interested parties can head to Paulina Lake and enjoy its campgrounds and nearby resort.
