While some Cascade Loop travelers relish the thought of well-appointed rooms, luxurious towels and in-room spa services, others prefer to sleep under the stars. Some campers want to see those stars directly from the heart of Cascade backcountry, while others seek a little more shelter from beneath the protection of their tent in a State Park, and many like to grab that view by simply stepping outside from their RV parked comfortably in an RV Park located closer to town. Whatever your camping style, the Cascade Loop has a plan for you.

Camping can be a great way to experience the Cascade Loop. Fresh air and views are abundant in the many campgrounds along your journey. How much you ‘rough it’ is directly dependent upon how much planning and prepping you do, and what kind of camping you want to do. Are you an RV camper or a tent camper?
