Enjoyed a return camping trip to Cascade Lakes recently. We reserved one of the sites on the lake with full hookups, the view here is just wonderful. The campground has lots of options for everyone, from tents to RV's. We like the proximity to Brevard, Hwy 276, DuPont State Forest, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We enjoy making Cascade Lakes...

I really like this campground. The bath house is clean. Lot's of campsites with full hookups and most of the sites are shady. Friendly staff. You can get Wi-Fi at the camp store. Lot's of hiking near by.

Campground was very beautiful. Bathhouses were clean and well maintained. Lots to do right at the campground but many more places to hike very close by. Quiet during the week but can get a bit crowded on the weekend. I would return here again.

I just stayed at Cascade Lake RA for the 4th time. Check-in is generally quick and easy. Nice that they take credit cards. I really like the layout of the campgrounds, some areas great for groups to be close together, and other areas giving solitude and privicy. Campground rules state no alcohol, however, as is the case with most campgrounds,... More

Great time. 2 lakes, one for fishing and canoeing and the other with a beach for swimming. Tent camping and full hook ups for campers.

My husband and I are staying here for a week. Everyone is so nice. The campground is well kept. Beautiful scenery. We have a site on the water with private dock. Not a bad kayak paddle to Hooker Falls. We traveled from Florida and are extremely satisfied. We definitely will be back.

We go camping here every summer and plan on coming back year after year. We have no complaints. The bathrooms are clean and are cleaned multiple times throughout the day. Very peaceful and quiet campground. Swimming area is great. No cell phone service if you have AT&T. They do however have WIFI at the camp store. You will get service... More

Just returned from a wonderful family camping trip over Memorial Day weekend. We enjoyed it so much we have already reserved spots for the fall! Our families rented 3 sites. A lot of sites are very narrow. There is not much privacy between campsites. Only a few could hold more than one large tent. There is no campfire grate provided.... More
