    Three Rivers Recreation Area, Oregon Real Estate

    The Three Rivers Recreation Area is a gated, unincorporated community located in Jefferson County on the southern side of the Metolius arm of Lake Billy Chinook (not to be confused with Three Rivers South – near La Pine). It shares the 97734 zip code with the city of Culver and the smaller, unincorporated communities of Opal City and Grandview. The current Three Rivers Recreation Area is a 4,000 acre gated community that dates back to the mid-1960s. There are approximately 625 property owners, of which about 90 live in the area year-round.

    About one-third of the area is a common area for residents and guests. While the area has recreational zoning, it is not a resort in the same way as other central Oregon resorts because the entire development is completely off-grid. There are no telephone lines, power lines, community water system, or sewer system. For power, homeowners rely on generators, wind turbines, and/or solar panels. For the most part, water is trucked into individual cisterns, though some owners have had deep wells drilled. Other property owners have installed propane gas. Phone service is cellular and internet & TV is by satellite dish.

    The rules & regulations governing home design in the 3 Rivers Recreation Area are also much more relaxed than those of other resort areas. Because of this, the homes vary greatly in size and construction. It is not unusual for a manufactured home to have a large, custom-built luxury home as a neighbor.

    Community amenities including a volunteer fire department, marina, recreation hall, the Big Canyon Gun Club shooting range, a 9-hole dry desert golf course, a 5,000-foot airstrip (2,500 feet paved), and miles of ATV trails. The “Three Rivers” in the name is in reference to the rivers that feed Lake Billy Chinook: the Crooked River, the Deschutes River, and the Metolius River.
