Experience Oregon’s forests with hands-on activities and interpretive exhibits at the Tillamook Forest Center. This impressive and sustainably built center is the largest forest-based learning center in the region. Plus, it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump from Portland. Learn about sustainable forest management, the devastating Tillamook Burn and the reforestation efforts that have taken place since. Climb the Tillamook Forest Center’s 40-foot-tall replica of a forest fire watchtower, step out on the 250-foot-long pedestrian suspension bridge, or enjoy hiking the nearby forest and riverside trails. Bring along a picnic lunch and take advantage of the many picnic benches located all throughout the center, or simply take in the view of the northern Coast Range Mountains. The Tillamook Forest Center is sure to delight children and adults and is FREE for all to enjoy, though donations are appreciated. Daytime RV parking is available.
