Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory (Clackamas County Tourism & Cultural Affairs)
The Clackamas County Tourism & Cultural Affairs (TCA) is the Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) for Clackamas County and is funded by the Transient Room Tax, a 6% tax charged on all overnight stays in the county, including hotels & motels, campgrounds, retreat centers, RV parks, bed & breakfasts, and vacation rentals.
These tax dollars are collected under the authority of the County’s Transient Room Tax Ordinance, to be used for the promotion and development of tourism and visitor programs for Clackamas County. The amount of tax dollars available for any given period, typically $2M annually, varies with the lodging occupancy rate.
The CCTCA is responsible to develop and promote tourism for the County. By increasing the number of new and repeat visitors to the County, we increase the amount of money visitors spend in our area, and thus contribute to economic development and local vitality. The CCTCA is overseen by the Clackamas County Tourism Development Council (CCTDC) which consists of nine members appointed by the Clackamas County Board of Commissioners. The Council oversees and directs the programs and operations of the CCTCA staff.See more
