The area was originally the site of Camp Abbot, a World War II training facility. The first condominiums were built in 1968 in conjunction with the completion of Sunriver Lodge and a year later the master plan was completed and developers began selling lots.

Sunriver offers 35 miles of pathways for pedestrians and bicycle riders, two swimming pools, 26 tennis courts, two parks and other common areas are private. A tax-based special service district within Deschutes County government provides fully-staffed police, fire and emergency medical services.

The community is home to more than 4,000 privately-owned residences and has a permanent population of approximately 1,700, though during peak vacation season it may swell to upwards of 20,000. Sunriver consists of residential areas, recreational facilities, a commercial development known as Sunriver Village Mall, and Sunriver Resort.
