Cazadero is an unincorporated historic locale in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States.[1] Cazadero was a station on the Estacada interurban railway line of the Portland Railway, Light and Power Company (PRL&P) and later Portland Electric Power Company (PEPCO), near where the power plant of the PEPCO-owned Cazadero Dam was located on the Clackamas River.[2]

The station was named by the original promoters of the line, likely after Cazadero, California.[2] Cazadero is a Spanish word meaning "a place for the pursuit of game".[2] Cazadero post office operated from 1904–1918;[2] it was located southeast of Cazadero station, near what is now Oregon Route 224 at .[3]
