Sage Bluff Campground is part of Lake Cascade State Park. It is a brand new loop on the lake south of Cascade, Idaho. Sage Bluff is stretched along the shoreline with a good beach depending on the water level. The campground is new and has newly planted trees and wildflowers which will one day make this a beautiful spot. The view of the lake and mountains is already fantastic. The pictures here where taken early in a very wet year. It won't be this wet when you visit.
