Sparks Lake is located along the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway in Oregon. We loved this byway so much, and we first stopped at Todd Lake along the way.
Sparks Lake is a very diverse lake that people from all over come to for fishing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, camping, swimming, photography, and more. There are many great hiking trails around the area as well as mountain biking trails. I was just in awe of the its beauty!
There were spots of the water that were so smooth and reflective that it looked like a mirrored image of the mountains and trees framing the lake. A photographer’s dream! Many of the region’s peaks are visible from the lake, such as Mount Bachelor, Three Sisters, and Broken Top.
I only wish we could’ve been there longer in order to hike around and explore the area more.
Wouldn’t you want to be near this beautiful lake all day?! The Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway is perfect to see beautiful natural lakes and landscapes, including this one.
