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.

Oregon’s first provisional government was formed here by a historical vote in 1843. Riparian forest and oak woodlands along the Willamette River provide birding opportunities year-round. Watch along the river for nesting Osprey and Green Heron, scan ponds for waterfowl, and check oaks for Western Bluebird and White-breasted Nuthatch. Six species of woodpeckers can be found in the park. In summer, listen for the ethereal song of Swainson’s Thrush. A visitor center provides interpretive displays and a gift shop.

From I-5, take Exit 278 and head W, following the signs. Champoeg State Heritage Area is off Hwy 219, 7 mi E of Newberg.
