Poison Creek Campground Review
Lake Cascade State Park
Creek Campground is set on the west shore of Cascade Lake at the foot
of West Mountain and is a "loop" in Lake Cascade State Park. This is a
park type setting with mowed lawns and trees scattered about. It has a
boat ramp for access to the lake but it is not a mooring dock, one
would need to beach their boat near their campsite. There is a large
group shelter which may be reserved for your party events. The day use
area is by the boat ramp and has a few tables scattered along the shore.
Additional Camping Opportunities: We have reviewed these nearby campgrounds; Amanita Campground, Big Sage Campground, Blue Heron Campground, Buttercup Campground, Crown Point Campground, Curlew Campground, French Creek Campground, Huckleberry Campground, Poison Creek Campground, Rainbow Point Campground, Ridgeview Campground, Sage Bluff Campground, Sugarloaf Campground, Van Wyck Campground and West Mountain Campground.
Host on Site: There is a host on site. They normally work one campground from opening till mid July then move to another for the remainder of the season so you never know who your host will be.
Electricity Available: Each campsite is equipped with electricity.
Garbage Services: Garbage service is available throughout the campground.
Water: Poison Creek Campground has a pressurized water system with good pressure and taste.
Restroom: There are three restrooms in Poison Creek Campground; one vault style outhouse near the boat ramp/day use area, another on the north end of the campground and a new flushing toilet in the shower facility located in the center of the campground.
Handicap Accessible: Poison Creek Campground is handicap accessible with three handicap equipped sites; 235, 236 and 237.
Firewood: Firewood is available through a vendors stand near the host for $6.00 per bundle. There was a rumor ice would be for sale during the hot summer days through the host.
Pets: Pets are allowed but must be kept on a leash or caged.
Fishing: Fishing is available in Cascade Lake from the bank or by boat. Species include trout, large and small mouth bass, perch and northern pikeminnow.
Boating: Boating is a favorite activity here and Poison Creek has a boat ramp and handling docks. One will need to remove their boat at night or beach it near your campsite as mooring at the dock is not allowed.
Swimming: Swim at your own risk as there is no lifeguard but you will find many people splashing and swimming on any hot day.
Recreation: Recreational activities include camping, fishing, swimming, water skiing, jet skiing, hiking, sun bathing, photography and watching wildlife.
Picnic Area: There is a small picnic area near the boat ramp.
Wildlife: One could see deer, elk, black bear and many smaller animals in this area. There are many species of bird to watch along the shore and in the woods.
Phone service: We had service with our AT&T phones but there is no pay phone in the campground.
RV Dumping Site: If you need to dump your RV waste there is an RV dumping station on the north end of West Mountain Campground.
Nearby Services: When we needed supplies we drove to Donnelly, Idaho about 8 miles away.
Location/Driving instructions: From Donnelly, Idaho follow this Google Map.
