Natural Features

North Twin Lake was formed about 20,000 years ago when rising magma encountered groundwater. This resulted in violent steam explosions which formed a broad shallow crater that later filled with water. Nearby peaks, lava flows and old-growth forests provide visitors with a varied landscape.

Nearby Attractions

Twin Lakes Trail #5.1 is an interpretive trail leaving the campground near the water that informs visitors about "dwarf mistletoe" infecting the ponderosa pine trees in the area.

Visitors can explore wilderness areas, rivers, lakes and reservoirs, and approximately hundred of miles of trail. Newberry National Volcanic Monument, approxiately 45 minutes by vehicle, is a great starting point for visitors to learn about the diverse landscape and history of the area through interpretive programs and exhibits. Visitors can explore Lava River Cave, the longest continuous lava tube in Oregon. Visitors enjoy traveling the Cascade Lakes Scenic Bywaywhich climbs 66 miles through the Cascade Range, weaving past snow-capped peaks and alpine lakes.
