Lake of the Woods is a summer mecca with magnificent scenery, excellent fishing and a multitude of water sports.
Spring Creek is an immaculately clear and calm creek that is fed from an underwater spring. The water is cold and has a striking color. Put in at the Spring Creek Recreation Site behind the Collier Logging Museum and paddle upstream to the headwaters where you can see the water bubble up from the sand. Spring Creek also offers a glimpse at Mare’s Eggs, which are unique and rate freshwater algae found in few places in the world.
Malone Springs on the Upper Klamath Lake provides perfect access to the Upper Klamath Canoe Trail. The Upper Klamath Canoe Trail is a 9.5 mile marked trail through the waterways in the Upper Klamath National Wildlife Refuge. Here, you can appreciate the abundance of wildlife, particularly the diverse bird species that frequent the Wildlife Refuge throughout the year.
Upper Klamath Lake is one of Oregon’s largest natural lakes, covering 141 sq. miles. Enjoy kayaking, canoeing, sailing and more. Sailing Magazine listed Klamath Lake as one of the 10 best sailing lakes in North America.
The Klamath River is wild and scenic, and in our opinion, the best place for white-water rafting in the West, even when many rivers are too low for play.
