Devils Lake is located on the Cascade Lakes Highway, approximately 30 minutes from Bend and is a stunning aquamarine lake. In the Winter it freezes over, and in early winter can be used as a skating lake. Deeper in winter, it is completely covered in snow. The area is a lava forest.
There is parking on the Highway which encompasses a short but steep hike down to the lake. There is also parking off road leading to campsites.
In winter the highway is closed from the Mt. Bachelor access point, but can be accessed via snow mobiles or snow cat.
During the Summer the lakes are maintained by Deschutes National Forest, in winter the permitting process is handled by ODOT (Oregon Dept. of Transportation).
