Cascade Creek Campground


Cascade Creek Campground is located adjacent to Highway 108 at an elevation of 6,000'. It is 9 miles east of Strawberry.

It makes a good place to park an RV when you are more interested in OHV-ing or hunting, but it lacks much scenic appeal as a camping place. Vault toilets are primitive. There is no garbage collection here, so you have to pack out your garbage. It is more open than other campgrounds, making it one of the first in the area to be open in the spring. The campground is on a first-come, first-served basis.
