Admission-Free, The Tillamook Forest Center In Oregon Is The Perfect Day Trip Destination
The Tillamook State Forest covers 364,000 acres, and it has an inspiring history. In the 1930s and 1940s, several wildfires decimated this land. In the following decades, schoolchildren and other volunteers planted more than 72,000 seedlings, successfully rehabilitating the forest from the Tillamook Burn.
Today, visitors will find plenty of campgrounds, hiking trails, and opportunities to fish and swim here, but this forest is also home to a wonderful place where you can learn more about its history, industry, and natural wonders.
