Highway 101 Manzanita to Tillamook

Highway 101 winds along near water as it passes through northern Tillamook County. From Manzanita, it's a short distance south to Nehalem, where the highway begins to track along the Nehalem River. Past Wheeler, the river empties into the Pacific and Highway 101 then follows along the beach, past Rockaway Beach, until it reaches the edge of Tillamook Bay at Barview. From there, it winds along the edge of Tillamook Bay until past Garibaldi it turns inland, away from the increasingly shallow waters of the bay, until it reaches Tillamook, the county seat of Tillamook County.

Milepost 43.9 Nehalem Bay State Park
Beginning 3 miles west of Hwy 101, the park extends to the tip of the spit enclosing Nehalem Bay and has extensive camping facilities including 260 campsites, 18 yurts, a hiker–biker camp, and a horse camp with corrals. An adjacent airport allows fly-in camping.
