Cascadia County Park

48241 Cascadia Dr. Cascadia, OR 97329

Located at the confluence of Soda Creek and the South Santiam River, Cascadia County Park has a rich native American and pioneer history, set within the lush confines of western Oregon's beautiful rain-forest.

Cascadia State Park is now Cascadia County Park
The transfer of ownership of Cascadia Park from Oregon State Parks to Linn County is now complete.  With that transfer, Linn County Parks will now be adding Cascadia's campsites, group camps and day-use areas to the Linn County reservation system.  Beginning October 1, 2022, Cascadia visitors will be able to reserve campsites for the 2023 camping season.

Park Location – Hwy. 20 east of Sweet Home, Oregon on the South Santiam River

Park Usage – Open from May to September

About the Park

While the park is quite large, there are twenty-two 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 beginning of May to the end of September. The west picnic area is open year-round.

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).

Cascadia County Park will tentatively be closing on October 23, 2022; this is subject to change.

Cascadia County Park will have select sites available for reservations beginning October 1, 2022.  You can reserve online at LinnParks.com or by calling the Parks Office at 541-967-3917.

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.
