“Affordable with lots to do”

Champoeg State Heritage Park
Ranked #2 of 56 things to do in Newberg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Champoeg is a huge park and there's a lot of things to see and do, not only in the park but close by the park! There are plenty of hiking trails and places to walk your dog. The pavilion is beautiful. The park is nestled by the river, which is pretty! There is also a place to play horse shoes and disc/frisbee golf! The park rangers and the park hosts are very friendly.
We stayed in a yurt and the price was pretty cheap! We opted for the yurt, instead of a hotel, due to the fantastic price!
My only negatives would be that there was no bank or beach to access the river, only a boat dock (no boat launch either)
The other negative would be that the yurts were all together, kinda close together in a field type area.
Other than that it was a great place to visit and stay!

Stroll by the river, go swimming, bike the trails, camp, hike, fresbie gold course, historical sites to visite, hold a special event. It costs $5 to enter the park. If you bring your bike you can ride the trail out of the park the Butteville store for drinks or ice cream or lunch. Many things to do and a great day to spend the day.

Oregon has a wonderful Canadian American history that comes together at Champoeg(Cantonment du Sable as the French Canadians called it).
At the visitor's center there are costumed volunteers who help to explain the importance of the historical vote passed by only 2 votes to become a territory of the United States, not a British possession.
The area looks much the same as it did in 1828 when Etienne Lucier and Joseph Gervais settled here.
Champoeg Park (Andre Longtain's original homestead) is so beautiful and reflects the Oregon I call home.
There are not a lot of amenities here, but if you are looking for a taste of heaven, go to Champoeg.

Beautiful state park! Camped here for a weekend with friends and enjoyed fishing nearby, running on the trails, and peace and quiet at night (it's just far enough from the highway to be fairly quiet without being a long drive). Close to both Portland and Salem and easy to access! There's a great looking disc golf course but we forget our discs =\ Park staff were friendly and helpful. Sept was a great time to go because it wasn't too busy.
