Fort Klamath

‘Where history of the Klamath Basin rests… literally’

Established in 1863 and once an old military outpost near the western end of the Oregon Trail between Crater Lake National Park and Upper Klamath Lake now serves as an 8-acre Klamath County Museum. The grounds include the graves of four Modoc Indians, including Captain Jack, executed by the U.S. Army after the Modoc Indian War of 1872-73. Aside from the rich history, Fort Klamath is known for its proximity to Crater Lake and its epic fly fishing, birding and kayaking on the nearby Wood River.
