Southern Oregon

The glowing green of growing valleys, the sparse beauty of high desert country – you get all that and more in the climatically diverse Southern Oregon.

World-class fishing and rafting rivers vie for attention with mountain biking and desert hiking. Then there's the clear blue water of Crater Lake, one of Oregon’s most spectacular natural wonders.

Southern Oregon is home to a pair of well-known festivals celebrating music and theater, as well as historical museums, arts communities, antique malls and thriving winery industries in several of its many valleys. History buffs will recognize the region as the site of Oregon's 19th-century gold rush, an era preserved for posterity within the boundaries of the entire town of Jacksonville.

Collier Memorial State Park and Logging Museum

Located 30 miles north of Klamath Falls, Collier Memorial State Park is rich with the history of eastern Oregon’s timber industry. Established in 1947, when the Collier brothers donated a unique collection of antique logging equipment, the museum at Collier Memorial State Park has one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of forestry equipment in the country.
