Succor Creek Park preserves a beautiful desert canyon on the far eastern edge of Oregon. There is a small primitive campground - mostly Idaho license plates here - that is accessed by a gravel road about ten miles north off OR 201 south of the town of Adrian. Succor Crreek's canyon is a small scale of what awaits river runners of other desert waterways in the area - the Owhyee River in Oregon and the Brunneau River in Idaho. You can also access the park from the south off US 95 just before it turns east into Idaho though now you are talking about 50 miles of gravel road. The road on the north side is better than the south, though neither would be great after or during periods of rainfall - flash floods and mud would be very dangerous. Besides the scenic grandeur of the desert canyon, a big draw here is an abundance of thundereggs to be found around.
