According to Wikipedia, Idiotville is located in the county of Tillamook, OR. Its coordinates are 45°37’10”N 123°25’5”W with an elevation of 1,200 ft. – Source, "Idiotville (historical)".

Idiotville, OR is located on the southeast end of Tillamook on the Pacific Ocean. Currently a ghost town, Idiotville is located at the mouth of Idiot Creek on the Wilson River. The name was conceived by loggers who were working there. Since the spot was so remote, it was said that only an idiot would work there, so the camp was popularly, and officially known as Idiotville, OR. The nearby stream was named Idiot Creek after the community was added to the official United States Board on Geographic Names list in 1977.
