Established in 1863, and once an old military outpost near the western end of the Oregon Trail between Crater Lake National Park and Upper Klamath Lake, Fort Klamath now serves as the Klamath County Museum.
Set on 8 acres, the museum’s grounds include the graves of four members of the Modoc tribe, including Captain Jack, executed by the U.S. Army after the Modoc War of 1872-73. Aside from the rich history, Fort Klamath is known for its location along the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway, proximity to Crater Lake National Park, and the epic fly fishing, birding and kayaking on the nearby Wood River.
