Klamath Falls

Klamath Falls is the seat of Klamath County in southwest Oregon, at the southern tip of Upper Klamath Lake. It lies on U.S. Highway 97 north of the California border. Highway 66 connects it with Ashland to the west.

In 1867, Klamath Falls was settled as Linkville. The 1900 Klamath irrigation project and arrival of the railroad in 1909 spurred its growth from a little settlement to a bustling city.

Today Klamath Falls, population 19,000, is the commercial hub of a farm, livestock and lumber region. Amtrak stops every morning on it's north bound leg of it's "Coast Starlight" Route. An underground supply of geothermically heated water is tapped to heat businesses, schools and homes. Area tourism is popular. Crater Lake National Park and Lava Beds National Monument are nearby. Klamath Lake is one of the largest bodies of fresh water in the state. The Klamath Basin contains six national wildlife refuges. The white pelican can be seen on many nearby lakes and the Klamath River. A Klamath Native Americans reservation is nearby. The Oregon Institute of Technology is in Klamath Falls.
