Cascade Lake has fifteen public campgrounds, twelve are in Lake Cascade State Park. There are six other points of interest which include picnic areas, swimming beaches, boating sites and a fishing bridge. For reviews of the campground click on the links listed below and in the left column of the this page. The points of interest can be seen by clicking on the links below the pictures to the right. Cascade, Idaho Google Map. You will find the national forest campgrounds offer lower pricing and a more woodsy feel while the state park camping offers a "park" like setting with mowed lawns.

Lake Cascade State Park offers a variety of camping environments, boat ramps and docks, picnic sites and several swimming beaches. There is a $5.00 entrance fee to enter any state park facility unless you are renting a space. There are showers available at Ridgeview and Poison Creek Campgrounds.
 It will cost you $5.00 for your car to enter the park and then $3.00 each for the shower. If you want to use a state park boat ramp it is also a $5.00 fee. They only charge one $5.00 fee per day, so you should be able to take your boat down and unload then later go to the showers with the same fee. So hang onto your receipt. To reserve a camping site go to Search for Lake Cascade State Park then select a loop from the "loop" drop down window on the right.

There are two RV dumping stations which are free other then the $5.00 entrance fee. One is in Van Wyck Campground and the other is on the north end of West Mountain Campground.

Lake Cascade State Park campgrounds are; Big Sage Campground, Blue Heron Campground, Buttercup Campground, Crown Point Campground, Curlew Campground, Huckleberry Campground, Poison Creek Campground, Ridgeview Campground, Sage Bluff Campground, Sugarloaf Campground, Van Wyck Campground and West Mountain Campground.

National Forest campgrounds include; Amanita Campground, French Creek Campground and Rainbow Campground. Campbell Creek Boating Site and Tamarack Falls Fishing Bridge are also National Forest facilities.
