East Lake is located inside the Newberry caldera. When a magma chamber collapsed, the caldera was formed and slowly filled up with water. East Lake is one of two lakes. The water accumulated from snow melt, rain fall, and hot spring. The average depth is 67 feet.
It’s a tranquil and sublime spot. The geologic activity isn’t done either. The lake bubbles.
There’s boating and hiking and wildlife to discover in this wonderful place.
