Fall Creek Reservoir is a prime recreation area surrounded by day-use parks and a campground.

Cascara campground, on the upper end of the Fall Creek Arm of the lake, is tucked away amid towering Douglas fir trees. This rustic campground offers 39 campsites, vault toilets, potable water, a launch ramp and swim area.  The first come, first served campsites are private, with many having views of the lake.  Looking for a place to camp with your group? A lake front reservable RV group camp, Fisherman's Point, is just across the road from Cascara campground.

And if you want to get out on the reservoir for the day, check out one of the five day-use areas. Winberry, with its two-lane boat ramp and parking for more than 100 cars and 150 boat trailers, is the largest.  It features flush restrooms, a swim dock and swim beach, and picnic areas with bbqs and fire rings.  There is a day use fee at Winberry.

There are four other small, free, day-use sites on North side of the lake. North Shore has both a high water and low-water ramp, vault toilets and is open April - September.
