Boat dock at Champoeg State Heritage Area will close July 24 - Aug. 10

July 12, 2019

The boat dock at Champoeg State Heritage Area will be closed to the public July 24 – Aug. 10 while contractors work to stabilize the riverbank under the dock’s gangway access. Crews will work to repair riverbank erosion where the gangway meets the shore.


“The gangway will need to be removed to access the riverbank, so we’re asking visitors to steer clear of the dock area until work is complete,” said John Mullen, park manager at Champoeg.


Dock access will be closed from both the land and river during the construction timeframe.


The dock is the only one of its kind in the park, however visitors to the area have a few other nearby dock options:

  • Boones Ferry Park, near Wilsonville
  • Rodger’s Landing County Park, near Newberg
  • Memorial Park, near Wilsonville
