The visitor center was a nice walk from the campground, and does a good job of presenting the history of Champoeg and the local area without bogging down into too many details. Some of the displays actually presented questions and story problems for the kids to work on, there were artifacts from the town, and friendly costumed docents eager to answer questions without cornering us into the long-winded monologues that can sometime happen.
We were also glad to find cold, reasonably-priced drinks to fortify us for the walk (in high 80's temperatures) back to the campground.
A generous relative had reserved half of the RV loop in the campground. Our group had its own set of restrooms, a meeting room with tables, chairs, and sinks, and RV hookups for 10 RVs. My husband and I tent-camped in the field. It was very quiet.
The park is nice, with lots of camping sites, 6 cabins, and 6 yurts, and lots of trails for biking and hiking.
In thinking of camping with any grandchildren here, the absence of any kind of playground is disappointing.
