Spectacular Views of Broken Top Mountain and Mt. Bachelor. Easily Accessible from the parking area. Surrounded by Alpine Meadow and Fur Forest. Dog Friendly. Fishing permitted.

Todd Lake is a beautiful yet small lake just 24 miles West of Bend. Its location is perfect for accessing Broken Top Mountain, and even better for the view of Mount Bachelor.

Spend a day at Todd Lake and enjoy fishing (mostly rainbow trout), swimming, and free access to three different locations of campsites.

Take the beautiful walk around the lake (Approx. 1.5 miles) and enjoy all the different views of the surroundings.

There are 3 walk-in campsites at Todd lake, which are a 10 minute hike from the day use parking area. For more information on the campground and contact numbers, check out the Forest Service site.

This is one of the smaller lakes in the area, and fewer people camp. During the day the area will be busing with people, in the evening you get more of a personal feel.
