Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Team

One of the main attractions at Cascadia State Park is the swimming hole on the South Santiam River. Just a few miles outside Sweet Home, the swimming hole offers a relaxing dip on a hot summer day. Relatively shallow and slow moving water makes it a good place for families to enjoy a swim. One of the main attractions is a series of small rapids that can be floated with inflatable rafts or inner tubes. After running the rapids, kids can carry their inflation device of choice back up the river and repeat the fun to their heart's content.

Getting to the swimming hole from the parking lot requires a short walk from the day use parking area. Signs in the group day-use area point to the river, and a trail with steps leads you there. After a swim, enjoy exploring the rest of the park, including the trail to Soda Creek Falls.
