With rivers, streams, and lakes dotting the landscape, Oregon’s Klamath Basin is filled with scenic spots to explore—and there may be no better way to experience the wilderness than from atop a stand-up paddleboard or the seat of a kayak or canoe.
The Klamath Basin and Southern Cascades host a variety of majestic landscapes—like pastoral farmland, rugged mountains, and lush forests—that make the region ripe for exploration. With rivers, streams, and lakes dotting those landscapes, there may be no better way to experience the rich wilderness than from atop a stand-up paddleboard or the seat of a kayak. The Klamath Basin sits along a major migratory bird route, so you’re likely to see wildlife and waterfowl along your paddle, whether in the heart of the Cascades or the marshland of Upper Klamath Lake.
