Located approx. 8 miles downstream from Orleans, Big Bar offers a gravel dirt road to an excellent boat launch for drift and jet boats. There is an information kiosk, ample parking and excellent access to the river’s edge for fishing. This is a popular take-out for boaters floating down from Orleans through the “gorge”.

For all boating on the Klamath, please read the restrictions on the Karuk Ceremonial dates.  Water and garbage service are not provided. Bring enough water for drinking, cooking and washing as well as extra water to drown campfires each day. Please take all trash, garbage, fish guts and dog droppings with you when you leave.
