Cascade Lake is beautiful and an excellent stop over. Water sports and beaches and sand to get into everything.
Sage is a roadside campground with moderate size sites, NO SHADE and level cement pads. My site overlooked the beach , however we had to walk the trail to gain access to the beach. The beach was never crowded, though on occasion it had some annoying and loud boaters who seem to think they were the only ones that were there to enjoy the area. Their dog even tried to attack my leashed dogs. I just did my best to stay at the area of the beach with no one else present.
There was a constant haze in the sky from the wildfires in the area. Kudos to the fire men and women .
Town was very nearby and everything you could need was there, including a huge laundromat and snow mobile dealership. Worth the visit.
Hard to get in, great sunsets & views, in the path of wind when weather systems move through, can be noisy in the daytime.
Very nice clean spot with water close. Lacking shade. Great place.
