The City of Sunshine
If you live in Klamath Falls you know what a beautiful place the “City of Sunshine” is! Nestled between Hog mountain and the enriched water fronts of Klamath Lake and Klamath River there is always plenty to do outdoors especially in the summer. The city boasts an elevation of 4,205ft of mountainous exploration fostered by 218 days of sun and July highs around 85 degrees! The winter isn’t all that bad either! The underground geothermal heating allows places like the Ella Redkey Pool to be open year round with average winter highs still settling in in the mid 40’s.
Some of the sites are arguably even more beautiful in the winter such as the Crater Lake in the Crater Lake National Park as seen in its “winter wonderland” below.

For those who have not been to Klamath Falls and its surrounding sites, I highly recommend spending a summer or winter adventure there. But where exactly is Klamath Falls you may ask? With not much over 20,000 residents (as of 2010) and 20 square miles of land it certainly isn’t the largest city in the state.
Where is Klamath Falls?
Klamath Falls is located in the southern most region of Oregon just 25 miles north of the California-Oregon border. Its county is the self titled county of Klamath County. Highway 97 cuts through the center of Klamath Falls city and Oregon in general stretching through Bend Oregon and ending around The Dalles. If you are still having trouble finding it on a map of Oregon just look for some of the largest bodies of water you can find! Klamath Lake happens to be the largest body of fresh water by surface area in Orgeon and its nearby neighbor of Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the western hemisphere and the seventh deepest in the entire world!
With such amazing natural wonders it seems it would be hard to miss such an awe inspiring location but just for your ease here are directions to Klamath Falls.
History of Klamath Falls
For those of you traveling to Klamath Falls or those who already live in Klamath Falls its always great to get an appreciation of a town with a rich history! Klamath Falls happens to be one of those towns. Klamath Falls history dates back more then 4,000 years before early settlers inhabited by native Americans. In fact, this is where Klamath derived its name as both the Klamath and Modoc Indians were the first inhabitants of that area.
Settlers began to become more frequent to Klamath Falls as it was passed through by routed by the Applegate Trail which blazed through the area around 1846 and was meant to provided a safer route for emigrants on the Oregon trail.
The first actual non Native American settler was a man by the name of Wallace Baldwin who was a 19 year old civilian packed with fifty horses. At that point he named the town Linkville because of its proximity to Link River; however, as we know that name was later changed in 1893 to Klamath Falls. After that a rich history of agriculture, WWII camps, a timber boom, becoming the fastest growing city in Oregon, earthquakes and so much more were written in Klamath Fall’s pages of time.
