Niagara Creek Area Camping

From Beardley Reservoir to Niagara Creek


The campgrounds in this region are scattered along a portion of Highway 108 from Beardsley Reservoir to Niagara Creek. Some are primitive campgrounds popular with people who simply want a place to park their RV; others offer more thickly forested settings with more complete facilities.

Cascade Creek Campground

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.
