It's only February but already the Recreation Staff is fielding daily phone calls from folks wanting to know when their favorite Tillamook State Forest campground will open. By popular demand, here is the 2016 Camping Season flyer for both the Tillamook and Clatsop State Forests.
Kudos to all of the super organized, thinking ahead trip planners out there!
Nestled in the lush Oregon Coast Range, the Tillamook State Forest is part of the richly colored tapestry of Oregon history and home to a wealth of opportunities to explore and enjoy nature.
This working forest is managed by the Oregon Department of Forestry within the agency mission, "To serve the people of Oregon by protecting, managing, and promoting stewardship of Oregon's forests to enhance environmental, economic, and community sustainability."
The Tillamook State Forest provides a wide range of values with the goal of maintaining a healthy forest while providing a sustainable flow of environmental, economic, and social outputs and benefits.
Our district offices are located on either side of the forest in Tillamook and Forest Grove with an additional satellite office in Columbia City.
