Champoeg State Heritage Area
Champoeg State Heritage Area features a rare combination of history, nature and recreation. Situated south of Newberg along the scenic Willamette River, Champoeg’s forests, fields and wetlands recreate the landscape of a bygone era.
This is the site where Oregon’s first provisional government was formed by a historical vote in 1843. A thriving town of 200 was established, only to be washed away during a great flood in 1861. This rich history earns the park’s placement on the National Register of Historic Places.
A diversity of activities await. Enjoy walking or biking on the paved trails that pass historical landmarks and hug the river. Play the 18-hole disc golf course under the oak trees, relax at the multitude of scenic picnic areas or fish or kayak from dock on the Willamette River.
The ecologically rich landscape is home to more than 130 bird species, including seasonally nesting western bluebirds and acorn woodpeckers.

The park has three spacious day-use areas that offer reservable group picnic areas. When they are not reserved, facilities are first-come, first-served. The Pioneer Memorial Building and Pavilion can be rented together or separately for special events of up to 200 people. Reservations may be made by calling 800-452-5687.
Group tent sites
