Lake Cascade State Park
Heron Campground is a "loop" in the Lake Cascade State Park. It is a
very "park" like setting with lawn and is well trimmed. There are pine
trees scattered about as well as campsites. There are a few campsites
close to the parking in which you could park your RV and use the nearby
campsite but at most campsites you would need to carry your tent in and
set up your camp. The campground is set on some gently rolling
hills next to Lake Cascade.
It has a very nice boat ramp and a good beach when the lake is not to
high. The country nearby has some forested area and some open sagebrush
Host on Site: Yes there is a host located near the entrance.
Electricity Available: Electricity is not available in the campsites.
Garbage Services: Garbage service is available, dump your garbage often to avoid trouble with bears.

Restroom: There are 2 restrooms, an older one located near the entrance and another new one at the boat ramp, both are vault style outhouses.

Firewood: Firewood is being sold for $6.00 per bundle. Ask your host how to get it if you don't see the firewood stand.

Fishing: Fishing from the shore or from your boat in the lake includes trout, perch, Bass and Northern Pikeminnow. We did a little fishing and caught perch on the bottom and two nice trout in a small inlet.
Boating: There is a beautiful boat ramp and dock here with a large parking lot.
Swimming: There is a nice beach at Blue Heron where you may swim at your own risk. The size of the beach depends on the water level in Lake Cascade.
Recreation: From Blue Heron Campground most campers are looking to play in the lake whether it is fishing, boating, skiing, swimming or sunbathing on the beach.
