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...

My daughter got married here last summer. We reserved the pavilion near the Monument area. It was a beautiful place for wedding and reception.

Oregon state parks are an upgrade for any Californian as they typically offer water/power to the rv/trailer camper. Champoeg is a beautifully configured park, offering nice sites, clean showers and restrooms and miles of hiking/biking trails along the Willamette River. I would give Champoeg 5 stars except that our plans required that we stay there over the Labor Day weekend... More

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
