None scheduled

Visitors can take a walk back through time as they visit an authentic fur trappers' encampment. In the early 1800's the bank of the Willamette River at Champoeg was host to fur trappers and their families. From here they embarked on great travels to trap beaver. • In their camp, walk among the tents and works stations, ask questions of the interpreters and watch demonstrations of trapping, shooting, cooking and packing for the fur trade. • In the Spring, learn what life was like for these intrepid men and their Metis wives as they gather, renew old friendships and return from their winter’s journey following waterways and trapping beaver. COST: $5 per vehicle parking fee or annual parking pass.
