Tillamook County is located along the north Oregon coast and generally covers the area from the summit of the Coast Range to the coastline. Tillamook County was established on December 15, 1853, the twelfth county in Oregon to be organized. It gets its name from the Killamook Indians and means "land of many waters." Mild summers and wet winters characterize the climate. Annual rainfall averages more than 90 inches with median temperatures ranging from 42°F in January to 58°F in July. Tillamook County's 1,125 square miles include nine rivers, four bays and 75 miles of coastline.
More than 90 percent of the land in the county is controlled by the State of Oregon, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, Tillamook County and private timber companies.
