I am about to spend a week here for the third year in a row. Excellent help, nice swimming, great beach, beautiful canoeing, clean restrooms, feels very safe, AND you may get to see the famous white (not albino) squirrels that live in this area. I

My husband and I are staying here for a week. Everyone is so nice. The campground is well kept. Beautiful scenery. We have a site on the water with private dock. Not a bad kayak paddle to Hooker Falls. We traveled from Florida and are extremely satisfied. We definitely will be back.

We go camping here every summer and plan on coming back year after year. We have no complaints. The bathrooms are clean and are cleaned multiple times throughout the day. Very peaceful and quiet campground. Swimming area is great. No cell phone service if you have AT&T. They do however have WIFI at the camp store. You will get service... More

A lot of sites are very narrow. There is not much privacy between campsites. Only a few could hold more than one large tent. There is no campfire grate provided.... More

It was a little more primitive than other campgrounds we have visited. The bath house was small with 2 stalls and one shower and no heat. It was cold the weekend we were there so heat would have been nice. The lake with the beach was very nice but there were cigarette butts in the sand, significant or I wouldn't... More

We just left 3 days of fantastic camping on Cascade Lake . The site we reserved had a power outage so we were moved to a very private site ( L2).Any site along the lake shore is nice but this one was special. We had our own private landing for the kayak and a great spot for throwing in a... More
