Wildlife Area · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Kilchis Point Reserve is a pristine 200 acre natural area located along Tillamook Bay in Bay City, Oregon. The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum (TCPM) owns, protects, maintains, and holds this land in the public trust. The history at Kilchis Point is long, rich and well documented. There are three sections of interpretive trails that will highlight Flora and Fauna, Native American Heritage, and Pioneer Settlement.

An interpretive kiosk, benches, arbor, and native garden are installed at the Trailhead. We encourage everyone to stop by and check it out! The parking area and trailhead are located at the corner of Warren and Spruce Streets in Bay City, Oregon. The first section of trail, the Trailhead Loop, is paved with pavers and has interpretive trail signs that highlight the Native American presence in the area, the first settlers in the Tillamook area, and common flora and fauna one will see along the trails.

  • Visited here after searching for places on the coast that are handicapped accessible. It’s a beautiful place and David, the good-hearted and knowledgeable caretaker, took us on a long tour through...  more »
  • This is a fine, quick stop off of 101 to learn about local history. A great place to take kids for a quick hike or field trip. As for bird watching, it was a dud. Nice bird blind, though.The trail is too short and flat to be labeled a hike.
  • Very well taken care of nature reserve! Take time to do the entire trail. Especially make it to the end of the trail for the amazing view. The park is super clean. I did not see any trash or rubbish anywhere on site. If you are swinging through put this on the must see list. Also, the entire trail is handicap accessible.
