North American Bigfoot Center Featured By Lonely Planet

Cliff and Melissa Barackman

While it may not be easy to find the elusive Bigfoot, it's hard not to catch references to the elusive cryptid throughout pop culture. From movies and television shows to bumper stickers and clothing, for a guy whose existence hasn't been proven, he sure is everywhere. A recent article by the travel experts over at Lonely Planet outlines trip ideas within the Pacific Northwest for people who want to maybe spot Sasquatch, and high on their list of places to experience is the North American Bigfoot Center in Boring. 

Bigfoot sightings are plentiful throughout the Pacific Northwest, and Mt. Hood Territory leads the way in reported experiences. That's why "Finding Bigfoot" star Cliff Barackman chose to open the North American Bigfoot Center in Boring; it's close to the Mt. Hood National Forest and a lot of "squatchy" territory. The article talks about the great exhibits that feature evidence from numerous sightings throughout the region, document his time on the popular TV series, plus outline centuries of historic lore and traditions around Bigfoot from Native American Tribes. 

Once you're done getting all the inspiration you could want at the museum, settle in at one of our campsites or get the group in a vacation rental out in the Mt. Hood National Forest to do a little searching yourselves. Check out our Trails Guide for ideas on places to start your Bigfooting adventure. If you do manage to get a photo of him, please be sure to use our #OMHT hashtag on social media, so we can be one of the first to see the photo and congratulate you on accomplishing something truly historic. Good luck!
