Hello,

The family and I are going camping first week of August (3 nights). We booked a campsite at the cascades thinking of using it as a base camp to visit the canyon and high falls. My son and I are average paddlers, but my daughter and wife are new to paddling. I am wondering if the high water levels are an issue to paddle up the cascades.I don't know if we will get a campsite near the Brigham parking or one higher above the two portages. Both campsites are reserved the night before. I have never paddled that stretch of river and am a little concerned about the girls lack of experience. Would not want to end up going down a rapid unwillingly :o . I know that the Brigham lake trail to High Falls is closed at the moment because of flooding. Any thoughts or information would be greatly appreciated.

Regards :D

You will be fine, buy a map and heed the River Sign's. I have taken Boy Scouts to that section of the Park many times and most had very little canoeing experience.
