Lakes & Water Adventures
Lake of the Woods
Lake of the Woods is a top destination for water sport aficionados and amateur outdoors fans alike. In addition to water sports and the opportunity to fish for yellow perch, salmon, largemouth bass, catfish, trout, and more, visitors can take in some of the most beautiful scenery the region has to offer.
Crescent Lake is a great place to take the whole family. Adults can enjoy more adventurous action water sports options like water skiing and wakeboarding, while the little ones can see the lake from a paddle boat or kayak.
Malone Springs on the Upper Klamath Lake provides perfect access to the Upper Klamath Canoe Trail. The Upper Klamath Canoe Trail is a 9.5 mile marked trail through the waterways in the Upper Klamath National Wildlife Refuge. Here, you can appreciate the abundance of wildlife, particularly the diverse bird species that frequent the Wildlife Refuge throughout the year.
Upper Klamath Lake
Upper Klamath Lake is one of Oregon’s largest natural lakes, covering 141 sq. miles. Enjoy kayaking, canoeing, sailing and more. Sailing Magazine listed Klamath Lake as one of the 10 best sailing lakes in North America.
The Klamath River is wild, scenic, and, in our opinion, the best place for white-water rafting in the West. Many nearby rivers are too low for most activities, making the Klamath River the perfect choice.
The Wood River has crystal clear water from springs to feed it. With vibrant blue water that moves at a leisurely pace, it is a local favorite for paddling a canoe or kayak.
