The Wilson River
Suspension Bridge

A variety of meeting and event spaces are available for rent at the Tillamook Forest Center and the nearby Smith Homestead Day Use Area. Some of the spaces associated with the building are only available after hours and require us to have staff in the building.

We'd love to give you a tour of our facilities and talk with you about options and opportunities to make your event a success. Drop us a line by email or give us a call at (503) 815-6808 for more information or to set up a time to visit.

The Combined River and Fireplace Room at the Tillamook Forest Center can be divided into two separatespaces or can function as one large room. The full space will comfortably hold about 70 people. The room features a working fireplace, deck overlooking the Wilson River, sinks, projection screens, and direct access to the trail system just outside the door.

The Tillamook Burn Theater is the place where we show and tell the story of fire. Its burned snags, burned trestle and smoke banners are fixed in place. But with seating for about 60 people, it makes for an ideal space to show your film, slideshow or host a special program.
