Destination guide

Kick back in Klamath Falls

Stretching along the southern shores of Upper Klamath Lake, Klamath Falls is the gateway to Crater Lake and the Lava Beds National Monument. It's a playground for outdoor adventure, though visitors who prefer a more-relaxed pace can take things a little slower among the stores, restaurants and historic sights of the city's 20th-century downtown. Whether you're planning a leisurely break or an action-packed getaway, Klamath Falls vacation rentals offer an ideal base for enjoying a little downtime with family and friends. You'll soon discover that lakeside options offer unforgettable views of Oregon's so-called city of sunshine.

Things to do

Klamath Falls boasts natural appeal

With Crater Lake National Park on the doorstep, outdoor time is always on the agenda in Klamath Falls. Formed in the aftermath of a violent Mount Mazama implosion, the lake is the deepest and clearest in North America and offers a unique backdrop for hiking. Boots not made for walking? Trolley tours along the 33-mile Rim Drive offer a relaxed way to soak up the sights and sounds of the park without ever needing to pull on your hiking gear. For those who prefer to be in the driving seat, road trips along the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway are a carefree way to explore at your own pace.

Activities

Explore downtown Klamath Falls

Though compact, downtown Klamath Falls plays host to a melting pot of historic delights and modern convenience. Equipping yourself with a walking map from the visitor center will help ensure you don't miss the best bits, among them Goeller House and the Ross Ragland Theater, though in summer, it can be just as much fun to ride the historic trolley that trundles up and down Main Street. For foodies, a surprising mix of downtown dining options offers the perfect opportunity to indulge in everything from freshly-grilled steaks to artfully-presented sushi before heading back to your rental.

Weather

When to visit Klamath Falls

Whether you plan to set off on a ranger-led hike or hop on a boat for a tour of the lake, the national park is at its most accessible during the summer months of July and August. Winter sports fans, inspired by the chance to throw on their cross-country skis or snowshoes and explore the snow-shrouded park between October and May, may beg to differ. For those looking for the best deals on Klamath Falls vacation rentals, these peak travel seasons should probably be avoided in favor of visiting in spring or fall.
