Welcome to the Fort Klamath Ranch
Located in the southern shadow of the peaks that make up Crater Lake National Park in Southern Oregon; the Upper Klamath Lake Basin is a pastoral valley framed by classic volcanoes and volcanic outcroppings. These mountains that rise from the 4200′ elevation valley floor are covered with Oregon’s best timber and silently host the bald eagle, elk, bear and wolves that reign here. The headwaters of the crystal blue streams and rivers that nurture this valley consist of cold springs that burst to the surface where the valley’s grass meets the base of the mountains. In the winter, Red Band trout and German Brown trout leave the often frozen Upper Klamath Lake to travel up these streams to spawn in groups, often drawing comparisons to a salmon run. Fort Creek, which meanders through Fork Klamath Ranch, is one such stream.
Members of the Goodson Family were first attracted to the Basin in the 1960’s to fish for trout while living in Klamath Falls, Oregon area. Family members have been in the area in one role or another for most of the last 50 years. We expect to continue as stewards of an amazing piece of heaven in Oregon for many years to come.
