Lake Cascade State Park provides diverse and exciting recreational opportunities throughout all four seasons. Popular for all types of boating, prevailing winds on the water make it especially well suited for sailing and windsurfing. Rainbow trout, Coho salmon, small mouth bass and perch can be caught from the shore or by boat in the summer or through the ice in the winter. Hiking, bird watching, photography, mountain biking, all types of boating, ice fishing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and just plain relaxing are all easily accessible from Lake Cascade State Park. Lake Cascade offers two group camping opportunities, including Snowbank group camp and Osprey Point group yurts, 232 individual campsites in 9 developed campgrounds (with power, sewer, and water at Poison Creek and Ridgeview)two dispersed camping areas with primitive camping, several day use areas, and 6 boat launch ramps. The various campgrounds and facilities of the park are dispersed around Lake Cascade's forty-one square miles of surface water and 86 miles of shoreline. The office for the park is located in Cascade near the intersection of Dam Road and Lakeshore Drive.
