We’ve partnered with Roadtrippers to provide a great way to plan a trip around Oregon. So start planning your next road trip to here, there or pretty much anywhere in Oregon.

Walk or bicycle along the Willamette River and catch a glimpse of park wildlife, including western bluebirds. Camp and picnic amid a dense stand of Oregon oak and ash trees (B-loop, normally open to tent camping, is closed until the summer of 2000 while construction of a hookup loop progresses). Play disc golf, or go fishing and canoeing. Or just relax and take in the entire scene while attending a music concert or special event at the park amphitheater.

Situated on the south bank of the scenic Willamette River, Champoeg’s acres of forest, fields and wetlands recreate the landscape of a bygone era. Tour the park’s visitor center, Newell House and Pioneer Mothers Log Cabin museums to discover pioneer life at Champoeg. Take a guided walk to learn what happened to the bustling pioneer town of Champoeg, and how the Donald Manson Barn was built.

Vital stats: $3 daily day-use fee or buy a $25 annual permit for access to all state park day-use areas. The campground has 46 electrical (maximum site 50 feet); 6 yurts; group tent (3 areas); group RV area; hiker/biker camp. For information only, call (503) 678-1251 Ext. 225, or (800) 551-6949. To make reservations, call 1-800-452-5687.

: Climate in this region changes with elevation. The area receives a high amount of precipitation. Much of the precipitation comes from October to April in the form of rain at the low elevations and as wet heavy snow in the higher elevations. Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent and does not stay on the ground for long. Late spring, summer and early autumn bring the best chance for clear, sunny days and bring moderate temperatures.

Location: Champoeg is located in the Willamette Valley, off US Highway 99 W, seven miles east of Newberg. From I-5, take Exit 278 and head west. Follow the signs to the park.
