We camped here with our tiny trailer in early May, and it was just wonderful. The landscape is gorgeous. The campsites are roomy, the washrooms are warm and clean, and the showers are great. Oregon state parks have spoiled us!

We stayed here three nights in our travel trailer. While Champoeg is best known for its historical significance, it is also a wonderful place to camp, hike and explore. The campsites are clean and well tended (I couldn't believe all the rose bushes). Clean shower facilities and lots of refuse disposal and recycle sites. Plus, the sites are long and... More

We love having this park near our home. When our kids were little, we'd load up the bikes and ride through the park and then down to the Butteville Store for an ice-cream cone! The paths run right along the Willamette, which makes for great views.

There's to much to do at Champoeg, and as part of the state park system, it's worth buying an annual state park pass. Lots of walking and bicycle trails, bird watching and activities. This is an easy go to place for us any time we have a free day.

Starting the new year with a guided hike and interpretive lecture from a state ranger in Champoeg (sham-POO-ig) State Park was an ideal way to kick off 2015. Parking fees are waved on the first day of the year in designated Oregon State Parks. The informative ranger made the guided hike much richer as we learned this beautiful historic setting... More

I enjoy visiting the park for hiking and just enjoying the different attractions. The Mother's house is really interesting. The off leash area for the dogs is clean and very spacious. The two I take enjoy the springtime the best, as they can get really wet in the creek that runs through it. A great place for us humans, without... More

I have used and enjoyed everything--River trail, interpretive center, yurts, and cabins. Great cycling, walking, picnic area, and historical tourism. Limited swimming, but close to berry farms!

This was final leg of our 2 week OR-CA coast road trip. It was the perfect campground in an historic area. The state park is very large, with an oak tree picnic section, separated RV and tent campgrounds. We stayed in the RV section which had large level paved pads, large picnic table and fire pit. There was only electricity... More

We stopped here on a geocaching adventure- lots of geocaches here- and really enjoyed walking the trails, too. The visitor's center has a small museum, and a little store with souvenirs and snacks, and a farm garden outside. There are plenty of nice, mostly level, walking trails, and we were amazed at the signs showing the flood levels from the... More

We stay in the CG regularly .. all are reserved sites til Oct. Loop B has more sun. If you need, the restrooms/showers are spotless. The paved bike path East will get you the 'best ice cream' in Butteville or to the West 'Mother's Cabin' and some valuable history, just to imagine our beginnings. The disc golf course is ALWAYS...
