Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

Soda Creek Campground, on the northern end of Sparks Lake, is one dusty and modest little campground.  With only 10 sites and little more then a vault toilet, don't expect a lot of amenities here.  With Soda Creek running through the front yard, it does offer incredible views of the Three Sisters Wilderness, particularly South Sister and Broken Top, and all the vitamin D you're willing to take.  The campground doesn't have a direct connection to Sparks Lake, unfortunately, but if you head 1.6-miles down a gravel road, you'll be able swim, paddle, or just soak in the sights of Sparks Lake to your heart's content.
