Most of the Museum, Erickson Collection, moved to Madras. I havenít been there since but was told it is a shade of its former self?
I wouldnít stay in Tillamook. Too many cows and it smells like cow poop. Beaches are a long way away. I have a hangar there.
The Cheese factory remodel is nearing completion but isnít quite done yet. I was there for several days last week. Worth a look when it reopens.
I grew up in Tillamook within site of the Blimp hangars, one hangar now, but it is worth looking at one of the largest wood buildings in the world.

Default Legal beach landing

As mentioned and pictured prior, for a normal legal beach landing, S16 Copalis is a State airport and closed winter months. Also, a high tide may influence your desire to land. Low tide is smart. It is a must do though, for the experience.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
