  • I didn't stay long, seemed too remote and there is broken glass all over the parking lot like they have problems with vandalism of vehicles.

  • Beautiful. More than enough room to explore picnics trail walks riding your horse etc.. Love this spacious park. Rangers are friendly and welcoming plus each have a wealth of information to happily share. Stop by and say hello and or have your next family reunion that special day your wedding or just come and take it all in!
  • A few features stand out: a ton of picnic tables, and close to a bunch of u-pick orchards, so this provides a good picnic spot after picking. Has long paved trails for little kids to bike on. Has access to Willamette river bank through a few access points from the paved trails. Typically not very crowded. This is definitely one of those less "natural" parks, since it becomes evident soon that the woods are basically overgrown hazelnut groves. Still, it is a very green space, small animals are plentiful and we get a good day away from the city.
  • Love this place. Just found it over the summer. This park has many amazing well maintained paths and also is great for large groups wanting to have outdoor events.
  • Willamette Mission State Park is a wonderful place for a day of adventuring. There are many miles of trails. Some of them are shared by hikers/bikers/equestrians. One can walk along the river, through/around active fields and amongst the nut (walnut/filbert) trees. It is possible to walk approximately 10 miles on the parks trails, and rarely have to walk the same path twice. It is also fun to watch the Wheatland Ferry from the park's edge as it moves back and forth across the river. If you have the time consider including a ferry crossing into your adventures (there is a fee). This is a very dog friendly park, but remember to bring your own bags - no kiosks. There is a day use fee charged to visit this park.
  • This state park has one of the best disc golf courses in the area! The park itself is very beautiful. There are Vineyards as you're driving in that really set the tone for the beauty that this park holds.
