About Us

Windsurfers and boat sails crisscross Lake Cascade when the afternoon winds kick up.  Fishers 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.
