Clackamas County Tourism & Cultural Affairs
The Clackamas County Tourism & Cultural Affairs (CCTCA) is charged with developing and administering a comprehensive destination marketing plan to enhance the quality of life for residents by achieving optimal economic benefit from tourism for county businesses, attractions and government. A large part of this happens (thanks to you) through well-developed partnerships based on a common vision for tourism in the county.

Mission:

“The Clackamas County Tourism Development Council (CCTDC), through well-developed partnerships based on common vision for tourism in the County, is responsible for developing and administering a comprehensive and effective destination plan/program to enhance the quality of life for residents through achieving optimal economic benefit from tourism and expanding the region’s amenity base in ways responsive to residents, businesses, attractions and government.”

Clackamas County Tourism & Cultural Affairs is branded and marketed as Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory.

Marketing Goal:
“To serve as the primary destination resource for trip planning resulting in a visit to this destination, as measured by demand for information, intent to travel, overall TRT collections, visitor spending and length of stay.”

Development Goal:
“To coordinate and assist in developing attraction and hospitality services and related public infrastructure resulting in expanded, improved and/or new visitor attractions, facilities and services.”

Advocacy Goal:
“To reinforce the economic and social value of tourism among residents and other key target audiences; encourage its continuing development; and serve as a catalyst for cooperative programs and interaction among the county's tourism partners."

Administration Goal:
“To operate as a fiscally responsible organization through research based planning, partnership development and performance accountability resulting in effective stewardship of the resources and return on investment.”

Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory
Explorers Welcome
From the 11,245-foot peak of its most recognized landmark, majestic Mount Hood, to the fertile Willamette Valley agritourism farms where homegrown specialties include tulips, berries, Christmas trees and wines, Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory is ripe with activities to be explored. Area offerings include historic tales stretching back to Pioneer days along the Oregon Trail and the Barlow Road, an abundance of festivals and events, diverse lodging and tax-free shopping. Year-round recreation for all skill levels stretches from the mountain (skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing) to our rivers and lakes (whitewater rafting, kayaking, fishing and swimming) our trails (mountain biking, hiking, climbing and horseback riding) and other activities such as golfing and camping.
