Klamath Falls, Oregon is a picturesque city situated on the southeastern shorn of the Upper Klamath Lake, approximately 25 miles north of the California-Oregon border. The high desert landscape coupled with the area's stunning views and fall colors make this a favorite area of Oregon for many. Known as "Oregon's City of Sunshine" and boasting more than 300 days of sun annually, it is no wonder Klamath Falls is so popular amongst locals, visitors, and our four-legged companions. Klamath Falls is home to several dedicated animal shelters.
