Fort Rock is a 4500-foot-tall volcanic ring located on an ancient dry lake bed in Lake County, Oregon. The nearby community of Fort Rock was established in 1908 and you can still visit the general store built over 100 years ago at the local Fort Rock Homestead Village Museum. Along with Silver Lake, Fort Rock is one of two remaining homestead-era communities in the area. See Travel Oregon’s coverage of this unique Oregon landscape and traveler tips on TripAdvisor.
