Willamette Mission State Park


  Willamette Mission State Park is the site of the first mission for Native Americans in the west. Nothing is left of the mission but an interpretive trail with simple frame outlines depicting the original building location and size gives visitors an idea of the mission’s scope. An educational nature trail, paved bike trails and horse trails are also in the park.


  The mission trail and the nature trail are grass and lumpy so neither is accessible. The bike trails are almost flat and in good condition except for a few rough patches.


  The parking lot is large enough for any RV. We were planning to take the ferry across the Willamette River but couldn’t because our rear overhang would have scraped due to the angle at the junction of the ramp and road.  Park   45.0803, -123.05506




  1. It's tough when your rear end scrapes isn't it? :-)
