Twin Rocks is an unincorporated community in Tillamook County, Oregon, United States, on the Oregon Coast. Twin Rocks, founded as a summer resort community, was named for two 100-foot-high rocks offshore in the Pacific Ocean.[1] Twin Rocks post office was established in 1914, with William E. Dunsmoor as the first postmaster.[1] The post office closed in 1954.[1]

Twin Rocks is located near two other unincorporated communities in Tillamook County, Barview and Watseco. The three communities are all along a 3-mile stretch of U.S. Route 101 between the cities of Rockaway Beach and Garibaldi.

Twin Rocks Friends Camp in the community was founded in 1918.[2]
