The Klamath County Museum was a worthwhile stop. There are many displays, some sure to capture your attention. Don't miss the room off the lobby with the audio tracks of some of the musicians who have performed here over the years.

Moore Park

Nice park that is fairly large and great for walking. Nice trails with hills and a great waterfront area for picnics with family and friends. I noticed frisbee golf play areas which looked fun. Will definitely enjoy this park again soon.

The current exhibit of Native American women's photographs is a national treasure. The standing exhibits fascinated the young boys, especially the working miniature guns.

Baldwin Hotel Museum

The Baldwin Hotel Museum is open during the summer months, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. The building has changed very little since it opened in 1906. All four floors of the former hotel feature rooms filled with artifacts of Klamath history. Examples include a kitchen, laundry room, children's room, music, parlor, cafeteria, doctors's office, lawyer's office, school room and much more. There is no elevator, and so the building presents a number of barriers to people with impaired mobility.

We went to this stunning hotel and took a step back in time during the amazing two hour tour. The friendly tour guides were knowledgable about the antiques, the beautiful building, and the history of the area. There is a wealth of items left behind by the original owners and donations from others. We took our 2 daughters ages 7 and 9 and the tour held their interest the entire time.

Link River Trail

The Link River Trail runs 1.5 miles through the Link River Canyon, a scenic gorge located in the heart of Klamath Falls. The trail (actually a service road for power facilities on the river) is closed to vehicle traffic. Gravel surface. Excellent birding. South trailhead behind the Favell Museum on West Main. North trailhead is on Lakeshore Drive. See the modest falls for which town was named.

Reviewed By RoadTripRoger - Putnam, Connecticut

The "trail" is basically a gravel road, closed to vehicles, that parallels the river and canal. The wife and I used it for part of daily walking while passing through Klamath. It is pleasant enough but not especially scenic. You will see river birds and huckleberries.

My family and I made a reservation to tour Badger Run and learn about birds of prey and I'm so glad we did. Great, knowledgeable volunteers, very experienced and caring. We really enjoyed our visit which lasted about 90 minutes. Please donate to the facility as they are a nonprofit and volunteer run organization.

Klamath Fish Hatchery

Reviewed By ZinFanatik - El Paso, Texas

The Hatchery is a ways from Klamath Falls, but good for a day trip. Heading north on Hwy 97 and taking the Crater Lake exit you will find the hatchery off on the right side of the road. The best time is in the fall, but it's worth a stop anytime. If you're interested in Crater Lake, and you should be, this is a nice spot to wander about and see where they spawn rainbow, cutthroat, brook and brown trout for planting in nearby watersheds. The area is also great if your are a birder or have a love for forest creatures. A bit further up the road is the old town of Fort Klamath where the Army built a post in 1863. There are some remnants of the Fort remaining, but the tiny town is scenic. It is also in the Wood River Valley where a cool clear river runs through lovely meadows and ranch-lands. Just a bit further is Crater Lake National Park, a must see. Try to go there in summer on a clear day - the reflection of the blue sky on the lake is astonishing! Peeking at the fish in the hatchery is surrounded by fun outdoor adventure!

Klamath Falls Skatepark

Reviewed By Chiefly1

The full hookup sites are very nice, exceptionally clean ( they rake the pine needles!) and most are level. The short trail to the logging museum is well worth the effort. The original log cabins are interesting and the equipment is exceptional. But the reason for stopping was to see Crater Lake and OMG is it impressive. You really need to visit and see for yourself the stunning views and enjoy the trails.

The Children's Museum of Klamath Falls

Reviewed By Richard J - Klamath Falls, Oregon

I helped a bit getting this museum set-up years ago - it is now in full operation and very impressive. Was there recently with my four grandchildren who just had a ball! The building is set up with numerous stations of all kinds - grocery store, beauty parlor, air line, recording studio, music stage, fire station....etc. Each well maintained area is full of fun things to do and is set up to be quite educational. . I think membership is just $10 a month - very reasonable. Highly recommended!!
