Barangay Tubod is the largest barangay and most populated barangay, serving as a gateway to the town. Its name derives from the Cebuano term tubod which means "spring". It has a hospital, the Singidas Medical Clinic, which is regarded as the cleanest hospital of the town. The Lily's Hidden Spring in the upper part of Tubod, and Mainit Waterfall in the lower part of Gatub are among Lakewood's tourist attractions.
