Curlew Campground is a small tent only "loop" in Lake Cascade State Park. It is on the west shore of Cascade Lake right next to Huckleberry Campground. There is a foot bridge connecting it to Huckleberry. The road makes a circle and there are about three picnic tables and three fire rings scattered about within that circle. It is grassy with several trees and no tent squares. You just set-up your tent wherever you want within that circle.
