Overall Rating

Cascara is a nice campground with several sites large enough for a 36+ foot 5th wheel. It is all 1st come 1st served, so we went out Thursday night to make sure we got a space that would fit us. This year, the reservoir was pretty low, so the boat ramp at the site was closed (probably contributed to the campground not filling up every weekend as of late). When you arrive, sites 1-23 are off to the left. The ones at the back are tucked more into the trees and has shorter driveways. As you swing around toward the reservoir, the sites get a little bigger & a little sunnier. We didn’t go to the sites on the right side of the campground, but they look like they would have quite a bit more shade.

Our spot, #23, was a ~62 foot driveway with tall pines & blackberry bushes circling it. We had decent shade throughout the day with areas of sun for those that wanted it. The weather was warm - in the low 90’s but there was a little breeze periodically during the day. We had friends with 3 kids bring out a 3 room tent, set up horseshoe stakes, and we had our dog octagon kennel up with room to spare.

There are some double sites that must be booked together. Max of 2 vehicles/ space, with the second vehicle costing $7/day. Cash/check/card for payment. There is overflow parking on the road outside the campground (but not on the road directly outside the campground- you have to drive a little ways back up the road. Jr Ranger talk in the amphitheater on Saturday’s. Ranger station on site has horseshoes/frisbee/balls to borrow.

I worked from the campground on Friday using my cellphone hotspot for internet & had faster speeds than out normal site in Harrisburg (also 4 bars).
