Whether you're planning a casual picnic in the woods, looking for a nature based learning experience or hoping to cross Climb a Forest Fire Lookout Tower off of your "To Do" list, the Tillamook Forest Center is a must see for anyone traveling between Portland and the coast.


Nestled in the lush green landscape of the Tillamook State Forest at milepost 22.5 on Highway 6, the Oregon Department of Forestry's education and recreation center is a portal for a variety of experiences from learning about forest ecosystems to hiking along the scenic Wilson River to hearing about Oregon history from seasoned interpretive specialists.
