Elk Creek Campground Opens with Expanded Trailhead Parking

Trail enthusiasts pulling across the bridge from Elk Creek Campground into the trailhead parking area are sure to notice a few changes to the facility.  Over the winter, the Forest Grove Road Crew expanded parking for the popular jumping off spot that provides access to the Wilson River Trail, the Elk Creek Trail and the Elk Mountain Trail.
A short drive past the existing parking area will lead visitors to discover an additional 17 parking spaces.  The new lot is designed for head-in parking of single family vehicles.  A short trail provides a link between the old parking lot and the new parking lot creating easy access to all of the trail options available at the site.

As of May 27th, all of the Tillamook State Forest Campgrounds are open for the 2016 camping season.
