11 Parks near Cascade, Idaho

Park is on the left heading into Cascade, just a mile south of the centre of town. Didn't have a reservation, but no problem, a lot of seasonal people had already left.
We were given site on Payette River. Site are a bit close together but with no neighbours this was not a problem.
Didn't use washroom/showers but did use the laundry - a real bargain: $1 to wash/$0.50 for 40 minutes of drying.
Sites were easy to navigate inside park - gravel roads.
Wifi was great - not a lot of people in the park so watched Netflix movie uninterrupted. I imagine, in the heat of summer with a full park, this wouldn't be possible.
Staff was excellent.
We would definitely stay here again. - DCM/JMB

Spots close together. The guy next to us, his slide out came awfully close. Mosquitoes. Seem to be more of a resort than campgrounds. Cable TV, but the wifi was no good, had to go to clubhouse which was closed so sat outside and got ate up by bugs. Mainly stayed here to get wifi for work, would have been better just to boondock and go to McDonalds. - Jim Lee

Rate reflects monthly rate- This is our third time staying in this park, we spent the summer of 2002 and 2009 here and had planed to stay the summer this time but we left after staying less then a month. the park showers are run down with what looked like mold in them, the sites have weeds growing in the parking area. We needed a LP tank filled and the staff acted put out and bothered that we requested this service. ( if you don't want to fill LP tanks the don't offer it). In 02 and 09 the staff was great, this time they just were not pleasant to deal with. We are not sure if we would stay here again! - User3449

Excellent dry camping park on a beautiful lake. We have a 36' trailer so the corner around the end loop was tight but fine. Backing into our spot was also not for a newbie due to trailer length, but we were allowed to park the pick up sideways in front so everything fit.
The only drawback was that the fire pit and table for our spot was behind our trailer, which worked fine since the people in front of our spot didn't use theirs so it was available to us. Once new people showed up though we were out of luck. The view made it all worth while, though.
All in all an excellent park that we will definitely be using again. - Webfoot0807

Oldest campground in Lake Cascade State Park, and really not suitable for large rigs. We worked hard to get 43' coach into site 8, but the view of the lake was worth it. Low water in the lake exposed lots of beach to walk on and there is a 5 mile trail starting just behind the park. - bobcovey

Ridgeview is one of two "premium" campgrounds at Lake Cascade State Park. The other is "Poison Creek" on the west side of the lake (quite far actually from this location). Ridgeview is along the lake, the farthest sites in this CG will be no farther than a couple of hundred feet from the water. Some sites have full hookups, some lack sewer. The sites with the better view of the lake are situated about 15 ft above lake level and do not have sewer. The CG has somewhat of a "chinese menu" for pricing - with/without sewer, over/under 62, and I understand next season in/out of state of Idaho. The shower building is new and immaculate. Showers are free to those who stay at this CG. There are two other neighboring campgrounds (that are part of the State Park) and those staying there must pay $3 per person per shower. There is a host on-site. He is VERY efficient and helpful. They also sell wood at 5/bundle. - alansills

We stayed here over the Memorial Day holiday. This is a neat and clean state park, well kept. Sites are much longer than stated on the reservation web site. We stayed in site 43 stated to be 35 foot long. We were able to park our 35'5" fifth wheel along with our 15' truck in the site. Sites are well spaced and each have a fire ring and picnic table. Boat docks are well maintained and life vests are provided for use. Would recommend this is state park if you like crowds. - ReneeG

Lake Cascade SP is not one park...but a series of parks around Lake Cascade. The one we stayed in was BEAUTIFUL...but it was not the one we had a reservation for. As we are not from this area...we had no idea each SP has a different name and we had missed our park a few miles (20) back. The reservations desk took care of us for which we were very grateful. The park we stayed in was FAB!!! Unbelievable bathrooms!! Right on the lake..and we walked over the dam in the morning. - Slow Roller

This CG is one of several camping areas around Lake Cascade managed as part of Lake Cascade State Park. The CG is on a hillside overlooking a boat ramp and an arm of Lake Cascade. Sites are paved and level. No hook-ups or showers available in this camping area. It is located far off the highway so it is very quiet. Most sites are small to medium-sized but there are a few that could accommodate a big rig. - winnebago99

This is more of a long term park than a short stay park. I know a lot of the amenities are not available. No discount cards even though they are advertised in CCUSA. No cable TV. Very tight to get into and out of the pull-throughs. This park is overpriced for overnighters, but seems to be a bargain for monthly. - monaco cruiser

Although without hookups, this is one of the nicest Forest Service campgrounds I’ve used. Interior road and the sites are paved. The sites are long and level with plenty of elbow room between them. Each has a separate sand covered tent pad, picnic table, fire ring, and a metal table for holding a portable grill. The camp ground doesn’t have bath houses, but they do have vaulted toilets that were clean and well maintained. There are community water faucets available to fill holding tanks when needed. It is within walking distance of a large lake with a boat ramp and excellent fishing. There was no cell or TV signals and getting satellite signals is a challenge due to tall pine trees. It’s remote and up in elevation but the road is paved, not steep, and all sizes rigs can navigate it. My rating is based on like primitive campgrounds vs. commercial ones with hookups. It would have been higher, but there isn't a dump station. It’s a good place to get away from civilization, but not have to work at maneuvering the rig among the trees to do so. - RLM

We arrived a few days earlier than our scheduled reservation but the office staff were very accommodating and found a site for us. The campground is located adjacent to the Payette River. The campground is big rig friendly, BUT there are lots of sites with overhanging tree branches that can make entry into sites difficult. Sites are hard packed dirt. We had two different sites and both required the use of leveling blocks. I believe all RV sites are full hookup, but some have 30 amp electric only. Some sites have concrete patios, some don't. Some sites have more space between them than others. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Restrooms/showers were cleaned daily. There are several tent camping areas in the campground. Free use of kayaks is offered and there are horseshoe pits. There are several trails around the campground and plenty of places to walk pets. Verizon data and cell service worked well, and we had numerous OTA channels. The park offers cinnamon rolls on Saturday mornings to guests Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend, and they offer a Sunday morning breakfast for a fee. We would stay again if passing through the area. - Guinness

Unfortunately for this park, the state spent this whole summer replacing the nearby bridge. We were there two times in summer and both times the pounding and other building racket made enjoyment of the park and sleep difficult. That was of course not the park's fault. However, the lack of advertised WiFi was the management's fault. It should not be claimed as an amenity until fixed. There were a few other issues such as an aggressive barking dog chained by one trailer and a 4-wheeler driven around camp by a minor many times and too fast as were some other cars. The men's bathroom/shower had an ongoing flooding issue that the maintenance crew tackled several times unsuccessfully. The staff really was very helpful and friendly. - Bluebird watcher

Each Spring we drive up to Garden Valley, Idaho to attend a retreat and often take up our travel trailer. RV spots in the Garden Valley/ Crouch area are REAL hard to find, which is too bad since this is a gorgeous area. The Starlight Mountain Theatre camping area is primarily set up to accommodate the folks who come to Garden Valley to see the various dramas that are put on during the summer. But depending on availability you can camp there even if you don't wish to see the plays. We always go up before the plays begin and usually have the place pretty much to ourselves. There are about 6 sites with full hookups which will cost your $21.00, and there are some other sites with just water and electricity. Those are $17 a night. We have stayed in both. The area is pretty poorly cared for and it's not uncommon to see trash on the ground. This year it appeared there was a bit more of an effort to improve the grounds but it was still far from perfect. You'll find little more than a place to park your RV (if you didn't come for the theatre). There are no bathrooms or showers so your RV will need to be completely self-contained. The address of this park says "Garden Valley" but technically it is situated in the small village of Crouch. - Paul_Oregon
