We spent 2 nights here which was enough time to explore. Klamath overlook allows great views but the 1/2 mile (as the crow flies) walk down to lower overlook even better. This is via a windy trail with inclines. Tour thru tree well worth a visit. The proprietor was really informative going above and beyond to ensure our visit was great.
This place is ideal for adventures in the forest. Lots of hikes to choose from in varying length and difficulty. Not much to the town- gas station and small casino- but as long as you are prepared, this place is amazing!!
Don’t go to the cabin restaurant near the drive thru tree Terrible service so bad I decided to take my food to go First off it smelled gross inside that should’ve been my sign to leave Waitress never have I met / ran into someone so rude When trying to ask a question about food she rudely cuts me off saying no she just needs drinks vey odd wish I could put down the exact way little racist it felt, so for my people of color avoid that place anyone everyone save your time it’s way to valuable
The tiny town of Klamath is not much more than a wide spot in the road but is ideally situated if you are wanting to experience the Redwoods National and State Parks. It is between the South and North Parks so you can head in either direction for the day. The food options are limited and not very healthy and you have to go 20 miles to Crescent City for any real services other than gas. No groceries or laundromat in the town or surroundings. There is a small casino if that is your thing. Very clean town and helpful people everywhere I went.
Basically "the town" was just the administrative buildings for the local aboriginal people, the hotel and attached small casino (we did not know about the casino until we arrived). In the immediate area there were a few homes, one gas station, one cafe and one bar. There was a private business venture nearby - one of the redwoods you could drive your car through (by donation; we drove our car through) and it is likely one of the nearest hotels to the "Avenue of the Giants" (scenic drive through the Redwoods National and State Parks) as well as the "Trees of Mystery" (inc 50 chainsaw sculptures and carvings illustrating stories about Paul Bunyan; we did not see this). We ate in the hotel restaurant and weren't encouraged to leave the hotel property. We went back to our room and watched a movie on the tv as there really is no entertainment nearby.
You go to Klamath for the redwoods--thats the draw, the attraction and what you do. There are beaches nearby but spend your time in the trees. The area has limited motels and restaurants so plan accordingly.
