The "refuge" is actually a series of parcels that are close to each other but not contiguous. Winter viewing: Several dozen bald eagles and probably a hundred (or more) hawks. And there must have been tens of thousands of waterfowl. Take one of the auto tours. The roads are gravel, but in very good condition. If you plan on getting... More

We headed up to Lower Klamath Lake to catch the bald eagle migration this past weekend (mid-January). Locals said we were a little early, but we were pleased with what we spotted - about 2 dozen bald eagles, 10 coyotes, 16 deer, 2 raccoons, 2 barn owls, a kestrel, tons of Canada geese, and numerous hawks (mostly rough-legged and red-tailed)....

The Lower Klamath Wilfelife Refuge runs along the border of Oregon and California. It is miles of self-guided tour and loads of wildlife!! Recommend visiting during fall and spring migrations for the larget number of bird species. Howver, there is something for every season.

I have never been in a place with so many birds. And we have been a lot of places around the world to go birding. You can literally be surrounded by hundreds of thousands of birds and not hear another human sound. We were there on a weekend day and we didn't see another human until we went to the... More

Use your vehicle as a blind, bring your binoculars and telephoto lens and enjoy the show! We visited in May and much of the migration had already occurred. Never the less, there were still a wide variety of birds and great numbers of them. White pelicans, sandhill cranes, american avocets, ring-necked pheasant and so much more! We can't imagine what...

Klamath Lake is great for fishing due to the algae. It is a major bird watching destination, especially during migrations. NOBODY SWIMS IN KLAMATH LAKE unless they are willing to swim in algae. Decent swimming is available at the nearby Lake of the Woods (lake and resort)
