This unusual angle shows the parking area for Koberg Beach, as well as the approach road where it crosses the railroad tracks. I-84 now cuts right through this land, and to drive to Koberg Beach you need to go all the way to Mosier and turn around.
Based on the cars and the power lines, I think this is circa 1935.
This is a great photo, as it gives a good over all view of the entire Koberg complex.
Interesting where the road crossed over the tracks, as I had it in my head the road was much further to the west.
Interesting to see how farming and entertainment went hand in hand.

This is an awesome photo. Never seen this view before. Wish it had never changed.

Wow- those are all cars in the center of the trees- and even a structure ... do I spy a few window frames- ?

Interesting historical picture. While change is often necessary and inevitable, we sure could have done a better job of not essentially destroying all that was good about Kobergs.

Someone just added a nice personal recollection about Koberg to a previous post: http://historichoodriver.com/index.php?showimage=744
