Create an itinerary including Todd Lake
Todd Lake is a natural lake near the crest of the Cascade Range in central Oregon in the United States. The lake covers 45 acres (18 ha). It is named in honor of John Y. Todd, an early settler in Central Oregon. Today, the lake and surrounding forest is managed by the United States Forest Service as part of the Deschutes National Forest. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife regularly stocks the lake with brook trout. There is a day-use area and a rustic campground located on the west shore of the lake. In the summer, Todd Lake is a popular outdoor recreation site for picnicking, fishing, hiking, and nature viewing. In the winter, trails in the Todd Lake area are used for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

  • Wonderful high elevation lake. Good hiking trails, great views. Too cold to swim, bring some bug spray!
  • Fantastic place to visit. Go slow on the entry road! It was completely snowed over and our kids had a blast sledding around the hills in the early snow.
