Lake Harriet

Quiet fishing retreat near Mount Hood

Best-kept secret at Mount Hood

Lake Harriet, near Timothy Lake and Mount Hood, is a 22-acre reservoir that stores water for PGE’s Oak Grove Hydroelectric Project.

The lake is stocked with rainbow trout. Both cutthroat and brown trout can also be caught here, making it an angler’s paradise.

The park, located at 2,000 feet in the Mount Hood National Forest, also provides great paddling. PGE manages this site in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service.

Thinking ahead

We’re committed to keeping our parks safe, clean, sustainable and welcoming – but we need your help.

Before you go

  • Make a plan: Check for road closures, construction, fire bans, swimming restrictions or other conditions that may hamper your visit.

  • …and a plan B: Make a backup plan in case of crowds. Try visiting on weekdays or at off-peak times to beat the masses!

  • EV adventuring? While our parks do not have charging stations (yet!), check here for nearby locations PGE that do.

During your visit

  • Stop campfires from becoming wildfires! Keep campfires small, make sure your tent and anything that can burn is a safe distance from your fire, keep water nearby and never leave a fire unattended.

  • Keep it clear: Park only in designated areas. Do not double-park or block entrances.

  • Leave no trace: Help us protect these natural areas by staying on-trail, packing out your trash, and admiring wildlife from a distance.
