Lake Cascade offers many beachfront campgrounds around the entire lake, which is a staggering amount because it’s among the largest bodies of water in Idaho. The lake has great fishing and is an ideal location for boaters, water skiing, sailing and other water sports. The lake sits next to Donnelly and Cascade, and many of the campgrounds are run by Idaho Parks and Recreation and the Forest Service.
