Very clean park. Central to the north end of Willamette Valley. Dog friendly. Even had an open play are for them. Park host was exceptionally helpful. Large sites in the newer loop. Stayed three nights. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Truck Camper.

Another hidden gem just a few miles off the interstate. Take the seven miles out and you will be rewarded with a very quiet and nice park. Some trails around the park and along the Willamette River.
Sites are paved and level, hookups in excellent shape. In the shoulder season only the loop in the back is open. Only a few trees there, while the other loop is completely shaded. Dump station on the way in/out.
we have earmarked this place for future stops when travelling the I-5. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great park for a one night stay in January on our way south. We had a large, pull-through site with electricity and water. Some sites have full services. Very quiet with no train or traffic noise. We will stay again. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
This is a state park about seven miles west of I-5. There are many activities here over the summer. Great park to watch the stars because it is so dark.

This is a nice state park located not too far from Portland, and the Evergreen Aircraft and Space Museum, home of the Spruce Goose. Good AT&T wireless signal for voice and data. Electric and water only. Dump station can handle two rigs at a time. Sites were gravel and level. Not much privacy in this campground. Great bike riding on paved trails. Can’t ride bikes on unpaved hiking trails. Spaces closer together than we have experienced in state parks in other states. We would stay here again.

We have stayed at this park twice with excellent results. Lots of grass and nicely spaced between sites in the B-loop. A-loop in closely spaced. Great paved bike riding trails along the Willamette River. We will make this a regular stop. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in the "A Circle" and enjoyed our stay. Early in the morning you can hear the owls going crazy. Our site was level, clean, and semi-private. They sell Ice and Firewood in the"B Circle". There are several walking paths that do not allow bicycles and a short walk to the Willamette River. Our rate reflects that our site had water and electricity, but no sewer. Some sites do have sewer, but none were available during our short stay. There is a dump site on the property. We will return here. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Travel Trailer.
Meadow camping. Clean bathrooms, Friendly hosts. No Verizon MiFi reception. Notes: Bike trails more often shared with roads. Great Southern Cal-style Mexican food at "Muchas Gracias" in nearby Newberg We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Motorhome.

We camped on the far end in B loop and would do it again. Weak to nonexistent Verizon cell service, which wasn't all bad. The restrooms and showers were cleaned daily. Friendly staff. Lots of Oregon history to review. Short walk to the Willamette River and a great river walk. If you want FHU reserve early or plan a week day stay.

This state park includes many actives: Frisbee golf course, fishing, hiking, boat dock and picnic areas. There are two camping sections within this park. One section is heavily wooded, and the other section in an open field. We found the section in the open field of the park to be our favorite with better views and most sites included sewer hookups. As you enter the park, a gift shop and museum are at the entrance. Our site was level. Only a few sites within the wooded area were able to a DirecTV satellite signal. Our Verizon phones got a weak 3G signal. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a wonderful state park. Friendly staff, well maintained, sites level, and bathrooms clean. We had a FHU site which we prefer, but there are just a few of them. If that's what you want, use the online reservation system, but do it early. We were here two weeks and have no complaints. Grandkids visited and enjoyed Ranger talks. We will come here again. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Motorhome.
We stayed in the 'B' loop with our 40' motorhome which has the bigger, more open sites. The park was well kept and the bathrooms very clean. We had site B11 and there were six sites in this small loop. However, there is absolutely no sitting area privacy in the loop as they are all facing each other. We had a very noisy group next to us. We would choose one of the back in spots if we ever return. The 'A' loop has a lot of trees and the sites aren't conducive to bigger RVs. There are eight full hookup sites and many cabins and yurts to rent. There are miles of paved walking/biking trails. We were disappointed that there really is no river access. Our Verizon didn't work great. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Motorhome.
Stayed here two nights at the beginning of a three week trip. Campground is situated about 7 miles from I-5. Some low hanging trees (about 12.5 foot) in the area but nothing that we could not go around. Stayed in loop B where there is minimal shade. If you are after a shady spot loop A is the place to go. Very few spots have sewer hookups so plan to use RV dump at the entrance to the campground. Very nice bicycle path close by. Beyond that, not a lot of things to do in the immediate vicinity but plenty to do within 30 mile radius. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place, especially during the off-season. Would imagine it is very busy in the summer. Nice bike and walking paths. Among the cleanest state park restroom/showers we have seen. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Motorhome.

This is a really great campground. It is neat and well laid out. There is not a lot of privacy since there are not a lot of trees, but the sites are well spaced. It is a very quite campground. We were concerned when we first arrived since there were "street lights" all around. Thankfully, most of them did not come on at night, so it was fairly nice and dark. Since there are not a lot of trees, satellite was easy to get. Verizon phone and data card worked well. The local town is not too far away and has all of the major stores. The park is full of history with great staff and volunteers. There literature is some of the best that we have seen at state parks. Really nice and well-done exhibits in the Visitor Center. There is a great, only 4 miles but nice, hiking/biking trail. We would definitely visit this park again. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Motorhome.

This is a terrific state park just south of Portland. If you are visiting in Portland, it would take you about 30 minutes to get to most of the city from here. The sites are very nicely spaced, tons of trees and a nice group area which we have used many times. Loop A is older, closer together but great trees. Loop B is newer, farther apart sites, but fewer trees. Both are great. We love camping here every year with our Airstream rally group. We camped at Champoeg State Heritage Area in a Travel Trailer.
