I took my teen daughters and their friends for a day trip. The girls and I had a surprisingly good time. There was plenty to do: water slide, high and low pier jump, water volleyball, and paddle boating the lake(additional cost of $5/30 minutes). The...More

Cascade Lake is a local favorite for cooling off in the summer. There are pavilions for groups to picnic, a diving platform, water spray, a small beach, slides and concessions. It's sort of a throwback--it's old style, but it works and works well.

We drove up for the day from DC, brought a picnic and enjoyed the day with friends. You need to be 8 and pass a swim test to get out to the diving platforms, and you can't go down the larger water slide unless you...More
