    Cascadia State Park Campground, nestled near the city of Cascadia, OR, is a gem for those looking to escape into nature. This place has a natural, forest-like atmosphere with beautiful trees and a peaceful vibe, especially during the weekdays. The campground operates from May 1 to September 30, offering a serene retreat with a rating of 4.5 stars.

    The campground features a mix of tent and RV accommodations, with amenities like drinking water, showers, toilets, and picnic tables. Fires are allowed, and firewood is available for purchase. Pets are welcome, making it a great spot for the whole family, including your furry friends.

    One of the standout features is the proximity to the South Santiam River, perfect for swimming, tubing, and fishing.

    Group campsites are available and highly recommended if you're traveling with a larger party. These sites offer plenty of space, tree cover, and nearby bathrooms. The group sites also provide easy access to the river and a massive meadow, ideal for stargazing and outdoor activities.

    Visitors have mentioned that the campground can get busy on weekends, so arriving early in the week might give you a better chance of snagging a prime spot. The campground is first-come, first-served, so plan accordingly.

    Cell service is spotty, with weak Verizon and better AT&T coverage. T-Mobile users might find themselves out of luck. Despite this, the natural beauty and amenities make Cascadia State Park Campground a fantastic choice for a relaxing getaway.
