California's Redwood Coast


Klamath River Lodge

The Klamath River Lodge was built in the 1930s out of massive Redwood timbers and  immediately took its place as one the best of  the special fishing resorts which dotted the Klamath River. 

The Klamath River Lodge
has something to offer all year round.

Summer : Relax around the pool or play croquet on the expansive lawn.  Temperatures average in the 90s and the evening breezes make for perfect all day outdoor fun.  Make your plans to run the rapids or schedule a drift boat trip down the Klamath.

Fall : Try your luck at reeling in the big one during the Fall run, while enjoying the moderate temperatures.  Enjoy your drive on Hwy 96 while taking in the beauty of the fall splendor nestled among the evergreens.

Winter :  Get reacquainted with your favorite book, take a walk in the rain, or explore the great outdoors while enjoying the carpet of orange and yellow leaves beneath your feet.

Spring : Fruit blossoms and lilacs abound to entice your senses.  Put on a sweater, grab your sketchbook or camera and select from the vast array of picturesque views to absorb.

Due to increased costs, rates may vary depending on the season. Please ask for current rates.

Whatever your particular pleasure, the Klamath River Lodge offers rich surroundings and modern amenities in a magnificent setting.

Due to wild life that visit the property, such as bear, deer, raccoons, fox, and bobcats, dogs can sense them during the night and can create disturbances to our guests even if kept inside the rooms or in vehicles.  So, we do not allow dogs with guests on the property. We do not allow exceptions to this rule.


The retired CEO who built the lodge was looking for good steelhead fishing and especially good FLY fishing.  He spent 30 some years enjoying some of the best steelhead fishing in the world, right here at the Klamath River Lodge. 

The present owners purchased the Klamath River Lodge in 1964 and in addition to enjoying the fishing and rural ambiance they try to maintain the grounds, structures and related facilities in relation to it's historical significance. 

Guests come to the Lodge from all over the world, there are some that have been returning every year for over 25 years.  The quiet summer resort keep our clients coming back. The comfortable, secluded, housekeeping cabins accommodate up to 5 people.  The lodge apartment accommodates up to 8 people. A swimming pool and cabana with large lawn area provide a place to relax. Rafting and drift boat fishing trips can be arranged.

The fly fishing waters, made famous the book "Steelhead to a Fly", by Clark Van Fleet adjoin the property.  If you are a "catch and release" angler who wants to mount the fish, but doesn't want to use the fish for taxidermy. You can release it for another angler to enjoy and still have a trophy for your Den, just contact Second Nature Taxidermy for a quality fiberglass reproduction fish cast.  Steelhead Fishing Guide Service - Salmon Trout Steelhead Fever: We specialize in float trips on the spectacular Grande Ronde River in S.E.
