Cade Lake is a 32-acre private lake with the parks setting on 98 acres, 53 wooded. Newly renovated family campground with 62 campsites: 44 sites full hookup, and 18 rustic sites. Camp fire rings, picnic tables, barbecue grills, picnic pavilion, dumping station and a fish cleaning station all make Cade a fun and easy place to camp and enjoy nature. Play on the sandy beach, fish from our piers or take a rental row boat or kayak out on the peaceful water. There’s also a playground, volleyball court, and indoor game room with a camp store. Looking for some exercise? Hike our trails or play 18 holes at Deadwood Disc Golf Course.

Some online navigation tools will try to direct campers down back roads to avoid going through the town of Sturgis. However, the easiest and best way to access Plumb School Road is by coming from either the east or the west on US 12. This will allow you to easily manuver larger campers/RVs.
The St. Joseph County Parks & Recreation Department continually strives to provide local communities access to well-maintained, safe and eco-friendly parks as well as fun recreation opportunities. While entry to our parks is currently free for county residents, we are asking for park supporters to consider making a donation of just $20 for continued development and maintenance. Park Patrons will make a significant difference in the options and features we are able to offer visitors and residents of St. Joseph County. Please consider donating today for better parks tomorrow! For a limited time, donate $20 and receive a free tshirt and water bottle.
