Nice

Very pretty. Nice trails. The dogs had a ball. The river was a rush (in both maners of speeking). Even if the sun may not be shinning, take time to enjoy.

We visited on the last day of their 2014 season. Because the day was cold and windy, we did a quick, brisk walk to the middle of the suspension bridge and back, and skipped the climb up the fire tower. Nevertheless, we spent an hour indoors watching the movie about the fires that have ravaged the forest numerous times, and... More

We spent part of the day at the Tillamook Forest Center on a Friday in October, and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. 3 of us hiked one of the trails, ate a picnic lunch on the deck outside, and enjoyed walking through the center. This is a very important place to visit, as we need to gain an understanding and... More

When ever My friends and I go hiking or mountain biking in the Tillamook State Forest we stop at the center to get information and advice on trails. The staff are always knowable and up to date on trail information. The center itself is full of fun interactive activities that would be good for little kids. Over worth a stop... More

We usually arrive in a place and book a tour to get the big picture. In this case, the big picture was the forest and history presented in the Forest Center. The exhibits were very well done, not too much reading and a few were interactive. There is a bridge and short hike out back for those of us tired... More

Despite my love for history, the outdated displays failed to connect. The bathrooms were dirty and would not recommend as a family event.

All the info about Oregon's timber industry is presented in an interesting and engaging manner. The film about the forest fires that occurred explained the danger of fighting fires and how damaging to the forests and how recovery happens.

This is a very cool place to visit. I'm a history and nature buff, so this place was right up my ally. Plus, my daughter had a blast. I'm from Vancouver, BC and I was staying at a nearby campsite and I had no idea that the Tillamook forest was a massive reforestation project. Very enlightening experience and humbling to... More

This should be a day trip, it is no fee and out in forest on Wilson River. Place is just 10 years old and great for kids as lots of interactive displays inside. Has fire Watch tower, suspension bridge over the river, miles of walking trails and fascinating history of the forest fire 1933 that destroyed most of millions of... More
