Off of Hwy 20 in the leafy foothills of the impressive Cascade mountains is a fertile sanctuary by a river where you can wander into a quiet kind of peace or a thrilling bout of adventure.
Take the trail to Soda Creek Falls, fish for steelhead on the banks of the South Santiam, whitewater kayak down stomach lurching rapids and lay belly up in a Douglas Fir rimmed meadow. Cascadia State Park offers all the green, river-fed magic you can expect from the Willamette Valley’s wilderness wonderland.

History of Cascadia State Park
This 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 1900s it was a well-known resort and watering spot.
