Cultus Lake Campground
Cultus Lake is one of the most popular of the high Cascade Lakes because it is one of the few that allows high speed motorized water craft. This campground offers opportunities for waterskiing, windsurfing, swimming, sailing, and jet skiing on the lake as well as access to trails that lead north into the Three Sisters Wilderness.
