Overview

Perched at 4,100 feet, Klamath Falls is a five-hour drive northeast of San Francisco, Ca., and five hours south of Portland, Ore. – far enough away from the rain and fog to be dubbed “The City of Sunshine” with nearly 300 sunny days each year.

Klamath Falls is home to Kiger Stadium, one of the United States’ last-remaining 20th century all-wooden baseball stadiums. Kiger opened in 1948 for the Class D Klamath Falls Gems, the Far West League farm team of the Philadelphia Phillies. Kiger hosted the Babe Ruth World Series in 1968.

Dozens of nearby lakes and rivers offer endless miles of kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing, rowing, and whitewater rafting. Enthusiasts from around the world join locals for hiking, sailing, biking, fishing and hunting. Klamath County has the state’s largest body of water, Upper Klamath Lake, as well as the United States’ deepest lake, the caldera at Crater Lake National Park.

Once named Linkville, the town was renamed Klamath Falls in 1893 inspired by a series of cascading whitewater rapids on the Link River west of downtown. Since then the river and its uses have changed with the times, but the beautiful rapids continue to rush along the richly scenic Link River Trail. This one-and-a-half mile trail between Upper Klamath Lake and Klamath River is a favorite spot for hikers, trail-runners, and birdwatchers trying to spot pelicans, herons, egrets, pheasants and bald eagles. A stroll downtown leads to museums, antique stores, art exhibits, locally owned restaurants, and the town’s treasured performing arts theater. Summer Saturdays feature a charming outdoor market full of locally grown produce and artisan crafts.

Oregon Institute of Technology is another shining star in Klamath Falls. The area’s unique volcanic geologic structure, in addition to its sunny skies, helped make Oregon Tech a leader in renewable energy education, and home to the Geo-Heat Center, a national resource for geothermal development.
