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 (download the park's day recreation brochure - 1.3 MB); requires Acrobat). An 1860s-style garden lies next to the visitor center.

The park also includes the Butteville General Store, which was founded by French Canadian Francis Xavier Matthieu, who played an important role in establishing the Provisional Government of Oregon at the historic Champoeg meeting of May 2, 1843. The Butteville General Store sells Italian sodas and lemonade, and rents bikes. Call (503) 678-1605 for information.
