Cascade Lakes Swim Series is a 5-race open water swim series in the state of Oregon in Elk Lake, a clear mountain lake at 4,900 feet (1,500 m) above sea level. It is one of America's Top 100 Open Water Swims and part of the Oregon Open Water Series.

The Series tests the navigational IQ and competitive tactics and strategies of the swimmers in a variety of ways: the 0.5 km races are individual time trial on an out-and-back course; the 1 km swim is along an irregular course following the shoreline; 1.5 km and 3 km swims are on a triangular course; the 5 km swim includes three loops of a diamond and triangular course.

The Series includes a Short Series (500m, 1000m, and 1500m swims) and a Long Series (1500m, 3000m, and 5000m swims). Each swimmer may enter one distance series only and must complete all 3 series swims to be eligible for Series awards. For series awards, points will be based on finish order in each race, with a wetsuit deduction when applicable. Swimmers who complete all 5 swims will be eligible for special Survivor Series awards.

It is organized by Bob Bruce and the Central Oregon Masters Aquatics.
