If there is a better stack exchange site to ask this question please let me know.

But I need to use Node.js and some package to download web sites.

There is a slew of them:

There is the native Node request method - http.request and there is a native Node get method - http.get.

There is a litany of other npm modules

There is also a tutorial by scotch.io and a similar ( not a duplicate ) older question on stackoverflow

When the web-scrapping comes to my mind I remembers python based beautiful-soup or selenium as tools I used to use before but if you want to work in NodeJS JavaScript I recommend you to checkout this post The Ultimate Guide to Web Scraping with Node.js from freecodecamp on medium.
