Succor Creek Field Trip

May 12 – 19, 2023

Richard Ilg will lead this one week trip in mid-May. Details will be updated when firm details become available. Succor Creek State Natural Area lies in a deep, rocky canyon and is a remote haven for rock hounds and wildlife watchers. Limited souvenir collecting by rock hounds is permitted in the park. A rough 15 mile dirt road leads from Oregon 201 to the park, which has primitive camping and day-use areas along both side of the creek. No water is available.

The Succor Creek Bridge is open to vehicles for access to the campsites on the east side of the creek (right/south of the bridge). The road to the left/north of the bridge is not safe for vehicular travel.

There are no pay phones or cell phone services at the Park. Staff and Staff Volunteers are not stationed at this site. This is a remote recreational experience, please prepare accordingly.

Year-round camping (first-come, first-served)
Four primitive sites on the west side of the creek
