Sparks Lake Shines During Central Oregon Summer
For folks in Bend, Sparks Lake has always been the “go-to” spot for a quick break from the heat. It’s just 25 miles from town, making it the closest of the Cascade lakes and a popular spot to fish, kayak, canoe or just wade in the alpine snowmelt. The views of Broken Top, Mt. Bachelor and South Sister are breathtaking as well. You can learn much more about Sparks Lake and its appeal in this Salem Statesman Journal piece.
