Plan an Adventure: The Tillamook Forest Center

The Tillamook Forest Center will remain closed for the remainder of 2021. The closure is in place to help limit exposure to COVID-19, to protect the entire community and to comply with state office closures. We anticipate reopening in March 2023. Please check back for updates  We look forward to seeing you when we can safely reopen.

We hope you make plans to visit us again once we re-open.

Sincerely, The Tillamook Forest Center Team

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.
