Event Description

I went ahead reserved the group site for the above dates (the only weekend available). Check in time is 4 pm on November 2, check out time is 1 pm on November 5. Camping fees are payable to me, $10 a night per bus, as I paid the $210 site fee today. Any excess funds I receive over that $210 will be donated as the group desires.

For those unfamiliar with the park, please go to http://www.oregonstateparks.org/park_113.php We are in the group RV site. There are five electrical stanchions that we can share, and running water at the site. The meeting hall has electric heat, running water, a kitchen sink (or two, I can't recall), banquet tables and chairs. There are restroom facilities adjacent to the hall. The meeting hall also has a nice wood stove, donations of wood highly encouraged! Free hot showers are available in the main camping loop, a short walk away.

A Saturday evening potluck is standard, as are the usual bus tours as weather permits. We generally have some rain, but the meeting hall is warm and dry and a perfect place to hang out. Champoeg is a beautiful park for walking, so don't forget your rain gear! I enjoy walking up to the Visitor Center to see the exhibits.

If I can answer any questions, please contact me directly. Hope to see you there!

I grew up across the road from the office/truck storage yard from Champoeg. Spent my summers on the dock on the river fishing, chasing fox & deer on my pony/horse, etc. I can't make it for this trip, but my friend Charlotte is on Champoeg Road up the hill from the park if anyone wants farm fresh raw milk (Champoeg Creamery) and her brother Bernard runs Full of Life Farm, where you can get pastured eggs & grass fed meets for the grill. Tell them Mary Thompson (now Atleson) sent you: http://www.champoegcreamery.com/
