Our home, Southcentral
Oregon’s Klamath Basin,
is an extraordinary place.

When you first see Crater Lake – or canoe through the vast marshes of the Klamath Basin Refuge system while birds soar in the air like clouds in flight – or walk or ride through the thousands of acres of public lands you will know the Klamath Basin is a spiritual place with a powerful spiritual presence.  When the wind whispers…you are not alone.  

Visitors to Klamath Falls and the Klamath Basin constantly say to us how surprised and delighted they are with our diversity and wealth of attractions! Mata Rust has, on her own time and own dime, put together a wonderful list of events in the REGION which she is maintaining and updating weekly.   I think this is an amazing contribution to our community and want to support her by letting you know how you can access this list or add  information on area events. Please contact her at and she will send you a word document by email.   GOOD JOB MATA!!!!

We are the home of Crater Lake, one of the natural wonders of the world. We are rated #1 on Sunset Magazine’s list of Fantastic Five Birding destinations in the West! Drive the glorious Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway All-American Road. ( Or the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway Oregon-California website: ) Klamath County can meet the needs of every level of golfer from beginner to those who want the challenge of a custom designed Arnold Palmer course ranked 51st in America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses by Golf Digest. Choose from: Running Y Ranch, Harbor Links, Shield Crest, Reames, Round Lake, and Indian Camp.

For visitors who enjoy wildlife and beautiful scenery, the Klamath Basin features a wide variety of outdoor viewing opportunities – mountains, desert, lakes, forest, Lava Beds National Monument, etc., and land forms/ habitats ranging from rocky outcrops above the treeline to extensive deep and shallow water marshes/ wetlands, including open water, coniferous forests, juniper woodlands, sagebrush grasslands, grassy meadows and rocky cliffs. Wild birds and animals are everywhere if one is quiet and respectful of their homelands.

Get your copy on-line! Recently published and already almost out of print you can download the pdf of Forestry Trails of Klamath County: trail guide which highlights the forest habitats associated with each trail, providing information on plants, wildlife and natural history. (Click on their projects tab, then look for their environmental projects.)

The Klamath Basin has thousands of acres of public land. What that means to you is that you can hike, cross-country ski, canoe, horseback ride and enjoy other motorless activities in the wilderness areas; snowmobile, bike, dog sled, and fish/ hunt in season on the rest.
