“Champoeg State Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is a great park for travelers and locals alike. Very close to the freeway but with a feel of being in the country, (beacause you are). Camping is unsurpassed, the history of the area is fascinating, the hiking trails are great.

In addition, my wife and I enjoy hauling our bikes to Champoeg and using it as our base for very enjoyable bike riding in easy, flat terrain.

“History in a park setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Champoeg is a huge historical site for Oregon. But its expanse of green, oaks trees on the Willamette, with hiking and camping were a nice surprise to me.

“Another Oregon State Park Hits the Mark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

The State Park system in Oregon is the best! We love exploring different parks as we travel the state and staying in their well-maintained campgrounds. Champoeg offers excellent camping opportunities w/great showers (free w/campground fee), clean bathrooms, fairly private camping and friendly hosts/employees. This is a state heritage park with a great visitor center where an overview of the area's history is laid out in a great little museum. For those who like to bike and hike, there are wonderful paved trails, views of the river, and a disc golf course. If you have the urge to visit the big city, Portland is a half hour away and the Woodburn Outlet Stores are 15 minutes away. Definitely something for everyone close by!

“Great fun and adventure with an interesting Oregon history lesson to boot.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

We visited the park over labor day weekend when they have a big
Heritage exhibit. Staff dressed in period
clothing gave demonstrations of the way life was in the late 1800s. The park is clean and quiet. Hiking, biking trails will
lead you to the Butteville store where you can have lunch or ice cream and pie. Play checkers, or relax in a rocker on the porch of one of the oldest country stores in the state.

“Camping at it's best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

It maybe a short drive to the park but it feels like a great place to get away from thephone calls and door knockers in our neighborhood. Set up, set back and relax in this excellent setting.
