Woods is an unincorporated community in Tillamook County, Oregon, United States.[1] Woods lies at the intersection of Brooten Road, Resort Drive, and Old Woods Road, along the Nestucca River just north of Pacific City and west of U.S. Route 101.[2]

Named for Joseph Woods, who settled here in about 1875, the community had a post office from 1886 through 1935. William Booth, who suggested the name "Woods", was the first postmaster.[3]
