Discovering the Natural Beauty of Cascade River State Park in Minnesota

As the name suggest, the main attraction to this park is the waterfalls. The water from the Cascade River flows down the black volcanic gorge for a total drop of 900 feet in the last three miles of its journey to Lake Superior.

The park has 18 miles of trails for hiking. If you are looking for a short hike to see the waterfalls, a small parking area on Highway 61 will get you there quickly. It is near the start of trail and will take you through a forest of aspen, birch, fir, spruce and cedars to a beautiful series of waterfalls.

The falls are lined with green moss and fern that add a magical feel to the place.


Camping is available year-round. The park has 40 drive-in campsites, 5 backpack sites, and 2 group campsites.


Check here for winter facilities and activities.


Spring, Fall & Winter: Daily, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Summer: Hours extended.
