Destination guide

Take a look at Tillamook - Oregon's adventure playground

Known along the Oregon Coast as nature's playground, the Tillamook region is home to some of the most breathtaking scenery on America's East Coast. An outdoor enthusiast's dream destination, Tillamook boasts numerous hiking trails and waterways to explore, most leaving from the Tillamook Forest Center. Amateur historians and WWII plane enthusiasts will love the Tillamook Naval Air Museum and Garibaldi Maritime Museum.

Things to do

From Hindenburg to hiking, a Tillamook vacation is off the hook!

The Tillamook Air Museum is a naval aviation museum housed in Hangar B, a former US Navy blimp hangar. It houses one of America's best private collections of World War II airplanes, including a Tiger Moth, and parts of the historic German airship, the Hindenburg. If you're more into nature than aircraft, then make the Tillamook Forest Center in the Tillamook State Forest your first point of call. It's open March through November, and has various exhibits and forest programs, as well as dozens of great hiking trails and picnic spots.

Natural features

For tree-mendous hikes head to Tillamook State Forest

The small town of Tillamook is just off the Oregon Coast on the southern flanks of Tillamook Bay. After a vast, devastating forest fire in the 1930s, known as the Tillamook Burn, Tillamook State Forest is the result of a massive reforestation process. Under the gaze of the snow-capped peaks of South Saddle Mountain, Tillamook State Forest is renowned for its many hiking trails. Several wooded trails follow the winding path of the Wilson River, which runs through the forest. Home to variety of birdlife, including the sooty grouse and the chestnut-backed chickadee, it's also great for wild salmon fishing.
