The Cascade Lakes are a collection of lakes in central Oregon in the United States. The lakes are found along the east side of the Cascade Range in Deschutes County, Oregon. The lakes begin west of Mount Bachelor, just beyond the Mount Bachelor ski area. The first lake in the chain is Todd Lake. Heading west and south, Todd Lake is followed by Sparks Lake, Devils Lake, Elk Lake, Hosmer Lake, Lava Lake, Little Lava Lake, Cultus Lake and Little Cultus Lake. At the south end of the chain are Crane Prairie Reservoir, North and South Twin Lakes, Wickiup Reservoir, and Davis Lake.[1]

The Cascade Lakes are accessed via the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway (also known as Century Drive and Forest Service Road 46). The byway is closed in the winter due to snow accumulation.[2]
