Bacolod is a fourth class municipality in the province of Lanao del Norte, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 21,818 people.[3]


Bacolod in the Maranao language means "wide shore". When Maranaos and other people pass the area as they journey by sea, they will always see the shore along present-day Bacolod very wide during low tide, hence, they call the area "bacolod".
