About the Park

Cascadia is closing on September 20th, 2020 for the year.

 

The first thing that strikes you when you arrive at Cascadia is the tranquility. While the park is quite large, there are barely two dozen first come, first served campsites, making this a great spot for an intimate getaway. The campground, group tent sites, and east picnic area are open May 1-September 30. The west picnic area is open year-round.

 

A pair of hiking trails give you a chance to explore the area. A three-quarter mile trail leads to the spectacular Soda Creek Falls. A newer trail ushers you through historic Douglas-fir trees along the South Santiam River (a good place to fish and swim). Ruts from the historic Santiam Wagon Road are visible in the park (the trail was used as a military route in the 1800’s).

History

Land was acquired from various owners between 1941 and 1980. The original purchase included the old Geisendorfer property with a soda spring and hotel site. Later, some property was exchanged with Timber Service Company (Hill Estate) for land at Cape Lookout. In the early 1900’s it was a well-known resort and watering spot.
