About Soda Creek Campground

Soda Creek Campground sits adjacent to Soda Creek as it flows across an open meadow into Sparks Lake.

Recreation

Sparks Lake's clear water and mountainous backdrop make it a popular destination for paddling and photography.

Facilities

Soda Creek Campground can accommodate RV, trailer or tent campers, however, electric hookups are not available. There are limited sites that are RV friendly, with most of the sites suitable for smaller vehicles or tent camping. All sites are equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring with grill and the campground has vault toilets available. Campers will need to bring their own water supply.

Natural Features

Sparks Lake, fed by streams originating on the slopes of Broken Top, rests atop a porous, volcanic lakebed. Throughout the summer the lake level decreases as snowmelt declines and water seeps underground into nearby lakes and streams.

3 Reviews of Soda Creek Campground
Mountains

Every site has a Mountain View. Sites right next to dirt road so it can be pretty dusty.

Recommend the island lifestyle

Adventure beyond this campground and you can camp on any island in Sparks Lake. Insane views of South Sister and Bachelor. Very isolated and fairly accessible. Great spot for those who have kayaks or rafts.

First to Review
One of the best in central Oregon

Amazing location right on the edge of a huge meadow where Soda Creek flows through to Sparks Lake. You have views of South Sister, Broken Top, and Mt. Bachelor and Sparks Lake is right around the corner… you can't go wrong with coming here. In the summer the dust can be slightly overwhelming but the scenery makes up for it.
