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.

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.

We recently visited Champoeg State Heritage Park, which is about 13 miles south of Tigard, Oregon and just a couple of miles off of Interstate 5, exit 278. The park is very well maintained, and the rangers are very helpful in pointing you to the things that you are most interested it. In our case, we were interested in hiking... More

I almost hesitate to sing the praises of this wonderful state park as we like to visit frequently. Champoeg is about 15 minutes south of Portland's outskirts and another 10-15 minutes off 1-5 which means it is very tranquil. Located along the Willamette River, there are miles of bicycle and hiking trails including a trail to the Butteville General Store... More
