Campgrounds in Succor Creek
Drop some Succor Creek knowledge on us.
My husband and I camped there by the creek in 1966. There wasn't andy camp ground then. We made our own camp fire ring with rocks found there. there was a tunnel across the creek. A big rock near our tent. A couple and their son camped on the other side of the rock. they were form New York. We were from Portland, Or. Our youngest child was 4, our son was 8, and two more girls 10 and 12. We had a wonderful time there. found geodes and thunder eggs up a road . Went back again about 19 or 20 years later and it hadn't changed. Thanks so much for posting these pictures and video's.
History of Succor Creek State Natural Area
Succor Creek’s 2,202 acres of land was obtained between 1966 and 1969 by a grant from the US Government (Bureau of Land Management), and by purchase and litigation with private owners. The name Succor Creek is said to refer to early travelers in the Snake River Basin who, having been saved by the creek's fresh water, applied the name as a corruption of the Spanish word socorro, meaning help or aid.
