Consider yourself invited to explore the Tillamook State Forest.

The Tillamook Forest Center is a special place to develop a deeper connection with Oregon’s forests through experience and exploration. Located in the heart of the Tillamook State Forest, the center showcases the legacy of the historic Tillamook Burn and the public spirit behind a monumental reforestation effort that left a permanent imprint on Oregon history while also shaping sustainable forest management today. We’re the region’s largest forest-based learning center and outdoor classroom facility, located 50 miles west of Portland and 22 miles east of Tillamook on Oregon Highway 6.

Come on up and see us, and find yourself in the forest.

  • Beautiful place to go, with a ton to do inside and outside. 15 minute movie about the Tillamook Fires. Interactive exhibits. Hikes. A fire tower to climb. Great for all ages. Watch the hours in the Spring & Fall it closes an hour early at 4pm. Summer they close at 5pm.
  • My entire family had an amazing day. Kids loved the lookout tower, education material, and the hike to some small falls was easy and beautiful in the fall! Will return for sure.
