The Wilson River is a rain-fed river in the Coastal Range of Oregon. It’s in Tillamook State Forest, which is only 45 minutes from Oregon’s largest city, Portland. Given the proximity, it is surprising how uncrowded sections of the Wilson River can be, in particular, the 23-mile route known as the Wilson River Trail. It begins at Jones Creek Campground, which is a homestead on the banks of the river.
