We’re pleased to announce that the Lower Klamath has been added to our database of rivers. At the moment, we have Happy Camp to Coon Creek mapped, and will likely get a number of other Lower Klamath runs up and live very shortly.
The Lower Klamath reminds me quite a bit of the Upper Kern river due to its amazing access and scenery. You would think that would be a contradiction but I was pleasantly surprised to see how little traffic there was on the road that follows the river.
Other highlights of the Lower Klamath that I enjoy include the wildlife and the camping. On my most recent trip we saw river otters, eagles, even signs of a bear. The camping is excellent with quite a few sites offering big sandy beaches with swimming holes – something I wasn’t expecting on a dam release river.
Anyway, the data is up. As always, feel free to message us if you come across a typo or a mistake.
