The Tillamook State Forest invites you to get involved in helping to create and maintain recreation opportunities through a wide range of volunteer opportunities.  From building trails to welcoming visitors to our campgrounds, there's sure to be something for everyone.

Camp Hosting

If you like meeting new people and are looking for an opportunity to get away from the "plugged in" lifestyle - camp hosting may be perfect for you.  Camp hosts in Oregon's State Forests enjoy rustic camping in some spectacularly scenic locations.

You can learn more about the Oregon Department of Forestry camp host program by checking out our hosting brochure.  we are currently taking applications for our 2019 camping season.

Our remaining 2019 host openings are:

  • Gales Creek Campground:  May & June
  • Jones Creek Campground:  May - September

Non-Motorized Trail Work Parties & Forest Clean-ups

Helping to build and maintain trails for hikers, equestrians and mountain bikers is a wonderful way to support recreation use in the Tillamook State Forest.
