Cascade Lake Recreation Area offers the ultimate in family campground excellence in the "Land of the Waterfalls". It is located adjacent to the DuPont State Recreational Forest. The Recreation Area includes a campground with 160 sites, shaded by red maple, white oak, hemlock, and other native tree species. Our lakeside campsites are surrounded on all sides by native flora and fauna and may just give our campers some of the best sunset views around.

The beach is private and limited to guests only. There are two lakes, one boat ramp and private boat docks available. Boat motors are limited to 12hp on the lake. Fish for trout and bass, or take a "cruise" in a pedal boat to relax while enjoying our beautiful mountain scenery. Rent a canoe and paddle up to one of Western NC's most visited waterfalls: Hooker Falls! Pisgah National Forest is only a short drive away, boasting some of the best hiking, camping, biking and fly fishing opportunities in the country.
