Drop some Alfred A. Loeb knowledge on us.
Love this campground and have been family camping there for 20 years. The last 3 summers have not been the same. They do not accomidations for large families, which may make alittle noise after dinner. As a matter of fact, we were pretty much harassed by the camp host and then by the Ranger, who hid in the bushes (I SWEAR) and waited for someone to laugh so he could step right back out and "warn" us again. He told us to use library voices!! Wouldn't you laugh? Anyway they used to greet us by name every year and now we get warned. FYI we family camp. With soda.
This place skewed heavily towards the RV crowd, which made it seem like a ghost town at night. The sites themselves did not have a ton of privacy, but we were in the first site to the left as you enter which was better than most. There is a nice trail down to the river, which would be great for swimming had the weather been warmer, and the bathrooms are clean and well-maintained.
History of Alfred A. Loeb State Park
The first park land was acquired by gift from the State Board of Forestry in 1958. It was a tract of 160 acres that had been purchased in 1948 by the Board of Forestry and Save the Myrtle Woods, Inc. from Alfred A. Loeb of Portland for the purpose of protecting the outstanding native myrtle trees and other vegetation along the Chetco River. The tract name, commemorating Loeb, was part of the original purchase agreement. The gift was, in turn, accepted by the Highway Commission after Curry County agreed to improve and oil the access road from U. S. Highway 101. In 1963, the park was expanded by the purchase of an adjoining 40-acre tract. An additional, separated hillside tract of 120.23 acres was obtained by patent from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management in 1962.
