Located along the McKenzie River, this resort is open 365 days of the year. Hot spring pools are open to day trippers or overnight guests. There are two pools at the resort which are heated from the main lodge. The water, rich in minerals, ranges between 185 and 195 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cascadia State Park

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 campsites, making this a great spot for an intimate getaway. The campground 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 .75 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).
