Our Guide to Winter Ice

When the temperatures drop, it’s time to lace up your skates and hit the ice! Everyone can have fun on the ice in Klamath County, whether they’re veteran ice skaters or first timers. The Bill Collier Community Ice Arena is southern Oregon’s premier ice rink, and visitors can enjoy winter sports for kids and adults like ice skating, ice hockey, broomball, and more.

The arena is covered by a pavilion-style roof that protects visitors from harsh sun rays while still allowing for panoramic views of the Klamath Basin. If you don’t want to skate, you can try ice fishing! While it’s possible to go ice fishing all year round, winter in Klamath County is the best time to try it out. Lake of the Woods has some of the best ice fishing in Oregon, and you can find fish like rainbow trout and yellow perch.
