Photo Op Self Guided Tour | The Great Hall

The Historic Great Hall at Sunriver Resort

For your photo op we recommend facing the side of The Great Hall and the stunning chimney of the Fireside Room to capture the grandeur of the building. These are the original buildings of Camp Abbot

While Sunriver is known for its fun and adventurous activities, some may not be aware of the rich history of the resort. What is now Sunriver Resort, originated as Camp Abbot, a World War II Training Camp. Today, the stunning Great Hall stands as the only remaining building from those days.

In 1942, the Great Hall was constructed over the course of nine months and opened up in 1943 as an officer’s club. The picturesque room we see today was quite the extensive project as it took hundreds of locally sourced pine logs to build. The iconic spiral staircase was made from a single pine that is five feet in diameter and nearly 500 years old! The two focal point fireplaces are made up of ten tons of quarried volcanic rock and took three months to complete. After two years and training about 90,000 combat engineers, Camp Abbot was no longer active.

The Great Hall has expanded way past its original intention over the last few decades. Since the training camp closed, the Great Hall has served a couple other purposes, including cattle storage for a period of time. These days, the unique space is one of the most sought after venues for conferences, extravagant weddings and special events in the Pacific Northwest.
