Swastika Mountain is a summit in Lane County, Oregon, in the United States. It is located within Umpqua National Forest.

The mountain took its name from the extinct town of Swastika, which was reportedly so named because a rancher there branded his cattle with the image of a swastika. George E. Thompson noted Swastika's unusual place name in You Live Where?: Interesting and Unusual Facts About Where We Live (2009).

A fire lookout tower stood atop Swastika Mountain until the 1950s.
