| Crown Point Campground is part of the Lake Cascade State
Park which has
more than 200 campsites in several locations around Lake Cascade. It is
set on the eastern shore of Cascade Lake only a mile from Cascade,
Idaho, and is covered with a mature forest. The area has small rolling
hills with some large boulders scattered about. The shore is sandy
which makes for a nice beach. There is a set of mooring docks for your
boat and parking if you want to bring your boat and trailer back to the
campground at night. Crown Point Campground is a very pleasant
campground which strikes a certain balance between the highly developed
park like setting and primitive camping.
Campsites: Crown Point has 29 tent / RV campsites which includes the 2 host sites. The host is in campsite 5. Campsites 8 and 9 are ADA equipped.
Fee Schedule: The single campsites are $14.84 per day including sales tax. Campsite 10 is a "companion" site (double) and is $29.68 including tax. Your extra vehicle cost another $8.48 per day.
