Annie Creek Sno-Park
Annie Creek Sno-Park is located 43 miles northwest of Klamath Falls, Oregon, near the Crater Lake National Park boundary. Its proximity is rich with history, as Fort Klamath lies less than 10 miles from the Sno-Park. Fort Klamath was established as a military outpost on the Oregon Trail in 1863. Today, it’s listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. If you want a break from recreating, it’s convenient to visit the Fort Klamath park and museum.
Annie Creek offers more amenities than the average Sno-Park. As an official stop on the Oregon Volcanic Scenic Byway, you’ll find an interpretive kiosk, as well as two vaulted toilets. An attractive log-style warming shelter with wood stove and benches is open year round for picnics and relaxation.
Snowmobilers can enjoy cruising under snow covered ponderosa pines and accessing miles and miles of trails. There are no managed cross country ski trails from Annie Creek. Besides snowmobiling, winter enthusiasts of all ages flock to Annie Creek Sno-Park for excellent sledding opportunities. Adjacent to the warming shelter lies a huge bowl shaped hill perfect for coasting your sled down.
At an elevation of 4,400 feet, Annie Creek generally sees snow from late November through February.
There is no potable water. Visitors need to bring plenty of water.
