Camp, Disc Golf, Hike, and Mountain Bike

Champoeg State Park (commonly pronounced SHAM-poo-EE) is a historic pioneer site as well as a beautiful outdoor recreational area. The Native Americans originally pronounced it CHAM-po-EGG, but it can be said either way. It was originally the homeland of the Tualatin Kalapuya tribe. In 1811, fur trappers arrived by canoe and discovered open prairies and lush land next to the Willamette River. In 1830, the French-Canadians began farming and raising families with their Indian wives once they retired from the Hudson Bay Company. Champoeg became a shipping and commercial centre with steamboat landings and ferry crossings. In 1851, local tribes and U.S government established six treaties at Champoeg. A flood in 1861 destroyed the Hudson Bay Company's granary and townsite. The historical interest draws many people to this location.

At Champoeg State Park, many people enjoy camping, boating, fishing, hiking, trail running, biking, and disc golf. There is also an amphitheatre where outdoor concerts are held during the summer months. The park also has 6 yurts and 6 cabins to stay the night in. They are usually reserved in advance so try to book a stay ahead of time. There are also 79 campsites, most all of which are RV friendly. Flushing toilets and hot showers are available.

The scenery at Champoeg is fairly diverse. There are many open field areas, as well as a lot of areas that are heavily wooded with tall trees and various vegetation. The hiking/walking trails lead through the wooded areas, but also through the open fields. The trails are easy to hike with small children. Just make sure to hold their hands or watch them carefully near the steep areas.

The park is home to the oldest operating store in Oregon, the Historic Butteville Store. Back in the day, it used to be a general store. You can walk or bike ride to the store and enjoy a cold drink or ice cream bar while learning about the local history of the area.

The disc golf course has 15 baskets. There are a couple baskets which are on top of stumps making the baskets a bit more difficult. Par: 45. The playing field is open in some areas, but there are quite a few trees in other areas.

There is a boardwalk and boat access on the calm Willamette River. 

Level terrain with tall, thick oaks. Good length and fair fairways. 18 long concrete tees and 11 shorter ones with multiple pin placements. We share this park with other users - please yield to picnickers, walkers and bikers. Vehicle fee; $5/day, $30/annual. Public ($3.00)Courtesy of DiscGolfUnited.com

Champoeg is a great place to go with family or friends! There are so many different activities to do here. The trails are child-friendly but still provide a great adventure outdoors. This would make a fantastic place to have a family reunion or a wedding reception. The hiking and biking trails are pretty easy and deliver great scenic views of the green landscape no matter where you look. There's so much interesting history about this place. I only spent a few hours there and I didn't get to see all of the park that I wanted to. I will be going back again soon!
