About the Park
Lake Cascade offers two group camping opportunities, including Snowbank group camp and Osprey Point group yurts, 279 individual campsites in 10 developed campgrounds (with power, sewer, and water at Poison Creek and Ridgeview) two dispersed camping areas with primitive camping, several day use areas, and six boat launch ramps.
Windsurfers and boat sails crisscross Lake Cascade when the afternoon winds kick up. Anglers catch Rainbow Trout, Coho Salmon, or Small-mouth Bass all year long and hikers or mountain bikers traverse a variety of trails within and beyond the park. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, the nearby North Fork of the Payette River offers world-class white water adventure.
Lake Cascade has as many camping options as it does recreational opportunities with hundreds of campsites ranging from primitive to fully serviced hook-ups. The sites are located along 86 miles of shoreline with beautiful views of Lake Cascade and the North Fork Mountain Range.
