Klamath Falls enjoys daily north and southbound Amtrak passenger service as part of the Coast Starlight route. Amtrak (541-884-2822 or 1-800-872-7245) also makes daily stops at Chemult in northern Klamath County.

The Coast Starlight route is known for its exceptional scenic beauty, with often spectacular views through Klamath County, including Upper Klamath Lake, Williamson River, Crescent and Odell lakes and our lush pine forests.
