Soda Creek Campground

Effective July 12, 2021, all open fires, including charcoal fires, will be prohibited on all lands administered by the Deschutes National Forest. There are no exceptions for developed or hosted campgrounds. Further information is found on the USDA Forest Service website. 

  • Soda Creek Campground sits adjacent to Soda Creek as it flows across an open meadow into Sparks Lake. Sparks Lake's clear water and mountainous backdrop make it a popular destination for paddling and photography. Sparks Lake, fed by streams originating on the slopes of Broken Top, rests atop a porous, volcanic lakebed. Throughout the summer the lake level decreases as snowmelt declines and water seeps underground into nearby lakes and streams.
