Champoeg State Heritage Area

Champoeg State Heritage Area is a jewel set just southwest of Wilsonville on the Willamette River.  Besides being rich in local, state, and national history, it’s also a great paddle destination for beautiful, serene water.  As you paddle down the tree lined corridor of the Willamette, you’ll share the river with Bald Eagles, osprey, and Great Blue Heron as they fish for their dinner, and view remnants of Oregon’s shipping history along the banks.
