    Cutting firewood for personal use is a popular pastime for many people who live near the Klamath National Forest. Each year, hundreds of people go to the woods to stock up on a supply of firewood for the winter, often thinking about how pleasant it is to sit in front of a warm fire on a cold winter night.

  • Campgrounds and Trailheads

    Want to kick back and relax under shady pines by a sparkling lake? Looking for a "base camp" for a day of hiking, boating, white water rafting, fishing, or swimming? Want to just get out of the house for the day for a nice picnic in the great outdoors? If so, the Klamath National Forest can offer you that and more!


Public input requested on Antelope and Tenant Fire Recovery Project

Bare ground and a few burnt trees with mountains and clouds

The Forest Service is preparing an environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed Antelope and Tennant Fire Recovery Project and is asking the public to provide comments during the 30-day scoping period. The Antelope and Tennant Fire Recovery Project was developed to accelerate the re-establishment of burned forest areas, reduce dead and down fuel loading, promote resilient forest conditions, and felling and removal of hazard trees for public safety. The proposal treats up to 56,504 acres within the 116,370-acre project boundary.

There will be a public meeting on June 15, 2022, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in person at the Butte Valley Community Center, 52900 US Highway 97, Dorris, CA 96023. This meeting is also being made available via Microsoft TEAMS (https://tinyurl.com/3xn9yj58).
