Best-kept secret at Mount Hood
Lake Harriet, near Timothy Lake and Mount Hood, is a 22-acre reservoir that stores water for PGE’s Oak Grove Hydroelectric Project.
The lake is stocked with rainbow trout, and cutthroat and brown trout can also be caught here, making it an angler’s paradise.
An 8-site campground is located at the head of the lake, surrounded by a sparse forest of alder trees that provide shade.
The park, located at 2,000 feet in the Mount Hood National Forest, also provides great boating and paddling. PGE manages this site in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service.
