Koberg Beach State Recreation Site

Park History

The parcels were acquired by purchase from private owners in 1951 in connection with construction of Interstate 84 at water grade along the Columbia River. The westernmost tract of 22.57 acres contains a prominent basalt outcrop which provided material for highway construction and, in addition, a swimming beach operated for many years by the Koberg family as a recreational site complete with dance pavilion. The historic use of the tract was acknowledged in the naming of the wayside.

Acreage: 75.83

Annual day-use attendance: 363,200
