The hike down to the river's mouth and along the beach can be as short or long as you like, and it's gorgeous all along the way. There were some neat old ruins (wood cabin type buildings) at the foot of the hills before the beach. Then the beach was long and lots of driftwood and birds. We could see... More

On this trip we were fortunate to see the Klamath River in the Klamath Falls area and also saw it here in Klamath. This area is where the Klamath flows into the Pacific Ocean. Klamath is an amazing place to go boating as well as salmon fishing. There is boating activities such as the the Klamath Jet Boat Trip. In... More

Only 5 minutes west of Hwy 101. The overlook, 200 feet above the river mouth and ocean provides a very good view when overcast and a spectacular view when clear. We lucked out and had an extraordinary experience. The coho salmon and steelheads were running and it was high tide with the waves smashing against the river current. see picture... More

We got our money's worth on this tour! Sea lions, bears, tons of birds and jumping fish. Be prepared to get wet and have a great time!

Pay for a guide or take a jet boat. Unfortunately I'm not impressed at the condition of the river upstream. Too much trash along the banks.

My husband and I took a private tour of the Klamath with Gary Whittaker or wildriverfishing.com. He is primarily a fishing guide and has lived on the Klamath his entire adult life. I'm sure he is a great fishing guide because he is so knowledgable about the river. We don't fish, just wanted a laid back and relaxed time on... More

Wonderful area, we were there at the time of the salmon fishing. HUGE fish! Stunning landscape, with the fog coming in.

We stopped at a turnout just past the Klamath bridge and walked out onto a beautiful balcony with balustrade and sculptures of bears that hangs out over the river. The view was incredible. The circle road that hugs the coast provides great views of the cliffs and ocean below, with small offshore rocks and islands.

Especially loved the estuary. It is so interesting that the sand bar builds up and then breaks at a different point. Plentiful wildlife - we saw harbor seals, osprey, and countless other birds. Hear there is potential for bear sightings.
