Good camping close to Town

This is a typical campground with Vault toilets, no showers, no water or electric hookups. However, it is just a couple miles from nice dining, mountain biking, and hiking.

Beautiful forest lake

It’s such a sweet spot I’m hesitant to broadcast it for fear of it getting more popular. Lovely and well maintained FS campground on Cascade Reservoir. It’s small, with well spaced sites. Good shade, tent pads, water, pit toilets, picnic tables, and excellent cellular on both AT&T and Verizon. Most sites are reservation, but there are about three, including one right on the lake, that are first come.

Easy launch for kayaks by day, and a sunset view from the campfire by night

This small lakeside campground captured our hearts. Who could resist it, with wide open lakefront views like these? A easy launch for kayaks by day, and a sunset view from the campfire by night. It was 4th of July weekend, so we did make a reservation, but there are a couple sites that are first come first serve. No hookups so it tended to be a quiet campground for smaller rigs and tent campers. The only noise?........ Cows! You could hear them in the early morning from the farm all the way across the lake, a country alarm clock. One of the things I really liked about this site, and a rare find in lakeside camping- No Bugs! A couple negatives, nice sized sites that are spread out but a little open so not a ton of privacy. And, the beach was a little lacking in that it was a drop off at most of the campsite edges, so finding a spot to get into the water was not as easy as in others. Cellular signal here was suprisingly good for Verizon. The town of Donnelly, was a 10 min drive away and had a small grocery store for ice and other supplies.
