Recreation

Camp nestled among tall trees.

Six Rivers National Forest offers nearly one million acres of forest for your enjoyment, relaxation, and exploration. Within a six-hour drive north of the Bay Area, you can experience the solitude of hiking in the wilderness on over 100 miles of trails, enjoy camping near others in developed campgrounds, or the solitude of camping in the back country. The forest is also a prime location for plenty of world-class fishing as well as the home to one of most barrier-free fishing locations in the Nation.

Klamath National Wild and Scenic River

[Photograph]: Relaxing on the Klamath River.

The spectacular Klamath River is both the second largest and second longest river in California. The river makes its way through over 200 miles both the Cascade and Coast Mountain Ranges offering many recreation opportunities to its visitors. Summer months bring rafters to the area and jet boat rides are offered out of the town of Klamath. The river is renowned for its fishing opportunities of Chinook (King Salmon), coho (Silver Salmon), and steelhead. The river is easily accessible off of Highway 96. Several ramps exist to provide easy launching for your boat.
