This is a remote campground with lots of services, thanks to several Forest Service campgrounds and private lodges at the lake. It's a mountain lake at moderate elevation, which means it has a pretty long season, but it stays pretty cool in the summers.
How to get there: Take Idaho 55 north to Cascade and Warm Lake Highway 25 miles to the lake.
Activities: Boating, fishing, swimming, hiking and riding.
Amenities: Picnic tables and grills, fire rings, pit toilets, hand pumps for water.
