Beautiful lake. View of Mount Hood. Campground. Boating. Swimming. Fishing. Hiking/biking trails.

Trillium Lake is a popular camp spot at the base of Mount Hood. It's known for it's scenery, abundant recreational activities, and is family friendly. Boating, swimming and fishing are quite popular on the 63 acre lake. There is a small boat ramp within the campground and a larger ramp available in the day use area. An accessible fishing pier is also available.

My friend and I just went down for the night to catch the sunset and possible northern lights show. There were nice big rocks along the shoreline for sitting and a family of friendly ducks to keep us company throughout the evening.

The calm lake provides a beautiful reflection of Mount Hood and once the sun goes down, the lights from the snow plows on the mountain reflect on the lake as well. It makes for a beautiful and unique site.

From Portland, travel southeast on Highway 26 for about 40 miles. Turn right a mile east of Government Camp at the easy to spot "Trillium Lake" sign.
