5/2/13 – Between 8/12 and 8/23 there will be a road crew in the area doing some work on Sparks Lake Meadow. We want to warn our campers at Soda Creek that noise and large machinery will be present, but we will not need to close the campground.

Why Camp Here
Soda Creek is the first campground that you come to when coming to the Cascade Lake area by going past Mt. Bachelor. It is certainly not the nicest campground, but is popular for those who want to hike into the Sisters Wilderness from the east side or for those going around Broken Top to the Three Creeks area. There is also an interesting wetlands area (Soda Creek) around the campground. The area is mostly sunny and a great spot for those camping with little kids since there are few dangers about. The creek is shallow, the area is wide open, yet there are fun places to play. It is doubtful that you will have many campers around you.
Good to Know
RVs should be careful, the roads are badly rutted, but it is a short trip off the main highway.
10 MPH speed limit is enforced for boating on Sparks Lake.
This is an unhosted site, but the Elk Lake host is nearby from Memorial Day through Labor Day and otherwise an attendant will be visiting the campground two to four times per day.
