Cascade is on the popular Chalk Creek Canyon. It is a typical National Forest Service campground in this area, with developed camp sites, vault toilets, and water available. All three Forest Service developed campgrounds appear suitable for RVs, but traffic noise from the county road is a problem. The road leads to the ghost town of St. Elmo (worth a visit), and lots of areas allowing ATVs so the road was busy from very early morning until after dark. Cascade campground is very pretty with lots of trees and great views of the canyon walls/cliffs. Chalk Creek is on the other side of the road from the campground. Sites are well spaced. We like Cascade the best of the three campgrounds because of the abundance of trees. There is plenty to do in the area, including Mt. Princeton Hot Springs and river rafting and fishing on the Arkansas River. Mountain town of Salida is fairly close by. We camped at Cascade Campground in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This is a beautiful campground in the National Forest. Price reflects Golden Age Pass. The campground is very clean and quiet. Site was large enough for our 36ft fifth wheel. We stayed 5 nights. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again, if in the area. We camped at Cascade Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

One of the most beautiful Forest Service campgrounds you will ever stay in. And everyone in Colorado knows this place, so you'd better make reservations. Not sure how to answer the "pet friendly" question. Yes, the locals do love pets -- for dinner! Keep yours leashed, don't let it outside at night, and don't leave food lying about your campsite.

Ditto to what the reviewer before me said. Of the three USFS campgrounds near Chalk Lake, this is our favorite. We spent one night on our way home from a trip and it was the perfect Last Night of a trip. Will stay there again if we can get in. We camped at Cascade Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

Very nice NFS campground 16 miles SW of Buena Vista. Take Highway 285 south to County Rd 162. Go 8.5 miles on the paved CR 162. Campground will be on the left just past Chalk Creek NFS CG. Cascade fills almost every night so reservations are needed. There are 2 other NFS campgrounds on CR 162. Cascade, in my opinion, has the largest and most private sites. Again this is a NFS campground. There are no hook ups, no showers, no dump and vault toilets. This campground has water but you have to pump it which is a task. Better fill your fresh water tank before arrival. You can't fill it in the campground unless you have a bucket and funnel. There are private campgrounds with dump sites on Hwy 285. Just ask the hosts. Hosts are wonderful. There is plenty to do in the area besides fishing and hiking. There is rafting, horseback riding and hot springs nearby. We camped at Cascade Campground in a Tent.Undo
