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.Put Todd Lake into our Bend holiday planning tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Bend.
Todd Lake reviews
This was a beautiful Lake to walk around, easy trail, beautiful views, saw a few fish in the water as it is very clean & clear. more »
Easy afternoon hike. Great for families with little kids, elderly, or those not suited for difficult hikes.
Oh Todd, you are lovely. I'm glad you decided to be away from the parking lot. Your mosquitos can bug me but I'll wait to see you in late July or August when they are gone. Todd, Todd, Todd. Yup.
