Basic fare but quite good. Fish and chips, hamburgers, normal breakfast fare. A campy restaurant facing a lake, beautiful scenery.

Plenty of room to park. We loaded all our stuff and went across the lake and camped on the secluded side. Incredible sunrise and sunset.

Hubby and I happened to be visiting family in Oregon on Free Fishing Weekend, so we took the fishing poles to South Twin Lake. According to friends, the lake has some huge trout, but that day they weren't hungry. Nobody got even a nibble...but at least we didn't pay for a temporary license. :) In retrospect, we should have rented... More

The drive to the Twin Lakes was beautiful and we were so glad we were directed to the resort at South Twin Lake. We were able to buy all we needed for my husband's first attempt fishing in Central Oregon on his own and the staff at the resort store told us all we needed to know. We were even... More

The ladies at the check-in counter were friendly and courteous. The day we were there they were very busy but remained calm and did a great job. Way to go Ladies.

I took my kids to South Twin when they were little and have friends who take their kids now. It is a great family lake with swimming for the kids--big and little. Enjoy!

The restaurant at South Twin Lake Resort is our little hideaway. We generally camp in the area a couple of times a month and sneak off to the restaurant for a meal versus cooking in camp, but we also find ourselves taking out of area friends up the Cascade Lakes Highway for the beautiful drive, then to South Twin's restaurant...
