Barview is an unincorporated community in Tillamook County, Oregon, United States. According to Oregon Geographic Names it was named in 1884 by L. C. Smith, who chose the name for the exceptional view of the bar at the entrance to Tillamook Bay.
Barview is located near two other unincorporated communities in Tillamook County, Twin Rocks and Watseco. The three communities are located along the 3-mile stretch of U.S. Route 101 between the cities of Rockaway Beach and Garibaldi.
