    Lake side camping

    We always do at least one trip to Angostura, generally in the fall when the temps are cooler, and the crowd has thinned some. Cascade Camp Ground with a site right next to the lake is our favorite. We enjoy relaxing in our hammocks, beach combing, bike riding, and flying an rc model float plame off the lake. The facilities are very nice, and pretty clean with a few bottle caps, bread ties, cigarette butts, and other small bits of trash around the camp site.

    Need more trees

    I love staying at Angostura but have been disappointed at the lack of trees around most of the sites. Please add some more trees for shade.
