At Timothy Lake, you can enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, picnicking, paddling, and horseback riding—all with a spectacular view of Mount Hood.
Around the 1,500-acre lake, seven campgrounds provide about 200 campsites, and there are several picnic areas along the shore. PGE manages this site in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service.
Timothy Lake is fished for kokanee, eastern brook and rainbow trout, and is one of the best crawdad (crayfish) spots in the state.
Motorized boats are allowed at a 10 mph speed limit, and canoes, kayaks, sailboats, and other non-motorized watercraft are welcome.
Day use requires a $5 daily vehicle permit or a valid annual Northwest Forest Pass or federal interagency pass.
