my girl goes to this park every year where they do a big Girl Scout jamboree so thats what I know it from. There is tons of walking, biking, frisbee golf and camping options here. I love it that you can camp in tents, RVs, yurts, or cabins ...whatever your heart wants is basically here and the park is huge!... More

Did a day hike in Champoeg State Park today. The hiking was easy thanks to a good map from the information center, though the trails aren't well marked. We had nice views of the Willamette River, beautiful fields and forest, and lots of ripe blackberries. I was surprised by how few people were there. Great mid-week trip in the summer.... More

Champoeg is just a treasure. Near the city but feels like you are far out in the country. Great place for large group functions. We have camped there but prefer to stay in a nearby hotel and then just meet up with our friends who prefer to camp. Many options available...tent sites, RV spots, yurts and a few small cabins....

We live in Newberg and love Champoeg. The bike trail is great: four miles each way to the historic Butteville Store through meadows, forest, along the river...lots of variety. The day use areas are outstanding, with frisbee golf, a stately oak savannah, access to the river, areas for large groups and individual picnickers alike. Have not camped there, but looks... More

The Visitor Center exhibits here are the best we have seen including at Crater Lake. Champoeg was a river town wiped completely out by the 1861 flood. It was rebuilt in part then left with nothing after the 1890 flood. Very historic site as this is where Oregon's territorial government was formed. Check out the barn and historic kitchen garden...

We like biking the area around Champoeg park, and use this as a base to venture south or west on long bike rides. The park itself is great, with many trails and areas to explore. The facilities are adequate for a remote park, with toilets and sinks with running water. There is a fee to use the park, ($5, I... More

No complaints about the camp setting but the Rangers were not helpful or friendly. My daughters and stopped here for two nights to visit family after we had been camping for a week on the coast. In comparison to the other state parks this one fell short on clean bathrooms and rangers available for assistance. Day use area is nice... More

We stayed 7 nights at this campground and spent much of the time in Portland. It is about 40 minutes from downtown and 10 minutes to I 5. Beautiful country, hiking trails, river, several varieties of birds. Campground is clean and separation is ok. The newest section has less trees and might be a bit warmer. The thing that bothered...

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
