The lake is very picturesque. Camping, fishing, boating are all popular activities. It is only about 60 miles from Portland.

I was blown away by the quiet location and spectacular views of Mt Hood. We stopped for a short while but next time we visit, we will check out the campground. Just beautiful!

Very nice hike, beautiful reflection of Mount Hood in the lake. Would recommend for those with children or those looking for a shorter, easy hike.

This gem of a park provides a stunning view of Mount Hood, which reflects onto the lake. You can either camp at Trillium Lake, or arrive early in the morning. This park is run by a concessionaire, and so is not covered by a Pacific...More
