Hosmer Lake

Amenities

The lake is a hidden jewel of green and blue surrounded by dark green forest. Thickets of bulrush wands hide the most secretive wildlife and fish. At the north end, water drains into a porous rim of lava. The best way to experience this lake is by canoe, but a shoreline hike will still produce wondrous sights and sounds. Take your camera to capture the spectacular view of Mt. Bachelor.

Hosmer is a “fly fishing only” lake well known for its breathtaking views of Mt. Bachelor, South Sister, Broken Top, wildlife viewing and the big Atlantic salmon, brook trout and rainbows that are quite visible in this shallow, clear lake.

Motorized “electric motors only” and non-motorized boats are allowed on this body of water. See Hosmer Lake Boating Site for more information.

There is one other access primarily for float tubes and canoes is at the Mallard Marsh Campground off a trail between campsites 14 and 15.

Share Bend This Fall

Fall is the best time to be in Bend, Oregon. Many people love the change in seasons as it brings colorful landscapes, sunny days, cool nights, foggy mornings, stunning sunsets, fewer crowds, outdoor fire pits, and seasonal brews. Not only that, but the outdoor recreation and entertainment don’t slow down. Take a stroll through Drake Park where the beautiful trees have shifted from summery green to bright autumnal yellow. Hike your way up to the top of Smith Rock to catch that glorious sunrise. Take the family on a fun trip to the local pumpkin patch. Just because the weather has cooled and the days are getting shorter doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. The opportunities are endless. This fall, share what you love. Share what counts. Share Bend.
