Road Report for the Tillamook State Forest
Know Before You Go 
Please use the Oregon Department of Transportations TripCheck website for information on major roads.  OR6 at Lees Camp - Traffic Cam  
The Tillamook State Forest is a working forest full of activity related to land management and recreation which puts a lot of traffic on the forest roads each day.  Here are some tips for travelling safely in the Tillamook State Forest:
  • Know Before You Go - Check the website road report or contact a district office when you are planning your trip in order to have the most current information about road closures and detours.
  • Keep the Speed Down - The forest roads are maintained gravel surfaces which are not suitable for the speeds and maneuvers typical of driving on paved road.  Cars, trucks, ATVs, and motorcycles handle differently on forest roads so driving at speeds lower than 25 miles per hour is recommended.
  • Keep to the Right - The forest roads are narrower than typical 2-lane paved roads.  Drive with caution and stay to the right anticipating oncoming traffic such as log trucks, gravel trucks, heavy equipment, and other vehicles.
