Cascades is home to the serene and private Elbow Lake. Guests enjoy swimming during summer months.  On top of swimming, we offer numerous other activities based out of the waterfront. We’ve added comfortable patio seating for onlookers to enjoy, too!
Reservation required for private use
Swimming is seasonal


Dive into Elbow Lake to cool off during the hot summer months. Have fun splashing around in the shallow section or swim out to the deeper section and make a big splash while doing some cannonballs! (Swimming is a seasonal activity.)


If you’re a thrill seeker, try the “Blob.” It’s a giant pillow of air floating atop Elbow Lake. Jump off the “Blob dock,” crawl all the way to the far end, then a friend will jump down and catapult you into the water. The “Blob” is definitely a Cascades favorite!


Practice your climbing skills as you summit our large Iceberg and enjoy the fast slide back down.


If you like a good challenge, scale the ropes of the “Bob” — our oversized buoy. Enjoy swinging back and forth on the top platform, then jump down into the water below!


At your request, boating is available to your group. Cascades canoes and row boats accommodate 1-3 passengers at a time, and kayaks accommodate 1-2 passengers at a time – all of which are a favorite pastime of many of our guests. (All guests must wear life jackets and children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.)


Grab your fishing pole and some bait and head out to Elbow Lake to try your hand at catching a big one. Follow a short trail to the left of the swimming section and end up on the fishing dock, or head out in a row boat to see if the fish are biting.
