  1. When I look at the campground map I can’t match these campsite photos to the map campsite numbers. For instance, site 36 E on the map….which campsite photo is a picture of that campsite?

    • Hi Tony,

      Thanks for heads up. We shot those photos back in 2013 and it appears as if Cascade River State Park has renumbered the sites. We will need to go back and reshoot. In the meantime, we will take the photos down. I’d recommend checking out the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources website as they have more info and some photos. Hopefully we’ll get new photos of Cascade River State Park campground up soon!

  2. Hi,

    I found this very helpful, showing the old sites and new renumbered sites: https://www.northshorevisitor.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/cascade-camp2016.pdf

  3. Are there no pictures of the backpacking sites?

    • Hi Karen,

      Sorry – we don’t have photos of the Cascade River State Park backpacking sites at this time. If you happen to go and take pictures, I’d be happy to post those on our site.
