Elk Creek Campground Open Year-round

Post by Sugar Pine » October 2nd, 2019, 11:45 am

Not sure where to post this. I subscribe to the Tillamook Forest blog and received notice of campground closures, which did not include the Elk Creek campground. ODF confirmed the Elk Creek campground changed from seasonal to year-round in 2018. Saves some road walking to access the trails.

That would be a good place to camp in the winter, thanks for posting. They close most campgrounds for no good reason.

Yes, a nice option for winter camping. Also, it gives day hikers easier access and more parking closer to the WRT and Elk Creek trailheads.
