Cascadia State Park Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Driving east on US 20 out of Sweet Home, you ﬁrst pass Foster Lake, a large and decidedly unscenic reservoir created by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Then the road gets a little curvy, the trees get taller and thicker, and you can feel the draw of the high country. You start to speed up, dreaming of what’s to come, and . . . what was that? Some kind of a park or something? Yes, that sign on the left said Cascadia State Park, and it is one of the little-known gems of the Oregon State Park system.
It doesn’t have the magical attractions of Silver Falls (see page 54) or as much dramatic mountain scenery as Tumalo (see page 94), and the location— so near to the I-5 corridor—might not seem inspiring. But drive down the short access road oﬀ US 20 and you’ll ﬁnd yourself in a little cove of peace and tranquility that most people speed right on past."
