Crown Point Campground Review
Lake Cascade State Park
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.
