Devils Lake


Devils LakeDevils Lake is a beautiful 23-acre shallow lake located adjacent to Century Drive about 30 miles southwest of Bend. The water's exquisite turquoise color and scenic views makes this lake a delightful place to visit for travelers on the Cascade Lakes Highway. The easy access, fishable shoreline, and stocking of catchable rainbows make Devils Lake an excellent place to take children fishing. In addition to the stocked rainbows there is a natural reproducing population of brook trout.

Devils Lake was formed by a lava flow that lies as a mass of jumbled volcanic rock at the lake’s east end. It is a shallow lake with an average depth of just over 3 feet and a maximum depth of 10 feet.

Motorized boats are prohibited on this body of water. 

Devils Lake Trailhead is beside Devils Lake and provides access to the Three Sisters Wilderness.

Small boats or rafts can be launched near the campground.
