The visitor center was a nice walk from the campground, and does a good job of presenting the history of Champoeg and the local area without bogging down into too many details. Some of the displays actually presented questions and story problems for the kids to work on, there were artifacts from the town, and friendly costumed docents eager to... More

We were looking forward to our stay at Champoeg as it appeared very spacious (which it was), had a disc golf course and was beside a river (for swimming). We were hugely disappointed that there is no where to swim. Yes there is a dock (although we couldn't find it) but you're not allowed to swim from it. And all... More

Great history. Wish Rangers would in force rules. Patrons show little respect for State Park. Camp grounds really messy, needs to be policed. (Military term for cleaned up). Great area for picnic & games. Very nice in Summer.

Since we live in the area we come often to ride bikes on the well maintained bike/walking trails. It is quite scenic and historic. They have a visitors center that is manned by volunteers and staff that are very helpful. There are camp sites and yurts for rent. We like to ride to the Butteville store for ice cream as... More

This is a wonderful park to ride bikes or just walk the several trails. Beautiful scenery and large trees make this a must do if you are in the area.

This state park includes many actives: Frisbee golf course, fishing, hiking, boat dock and picnic areas. There are two camping sections within this park. One section is heavily wooded, and the other section in an open field. We found the section in the open field of the park to be our favorite with better views and most sites included sewer... More

This is a beautiful park near newberg oregon that has long walking trails along the river. Some of the brush is dense and has poison oak so you have to be careful. There are lots of picnic grounds and open areas also. Nice getaway from the wineries to get a little exercise.

The trail system is nice and easy to use. A beautiful spot for a hot weather picnic. The birding is good as well.

Cons, bats in the yurts, they don't slow down the cars in the park, the park rangers are not very helpful. Pros, its a pretty park I was walking along the sidewalk in the park , as a pickup driving fast right in front of me up on the curb almost hitting me, it was a bunch of kids. I... More

Spent the night camping at the park. Great facilities, with lots to do in the park. It's just far enough away from things to get away, without being too far away. Lots to explore and do outside, as well as being on the river for even more options.
