Chiloquin has a gorgeous country-side with two rivers, a number of creeks, wetlands, lakes, pine trees and cascading mountains all rolled up in one aspiring place. We are a fisherman’s dream but the fulfilling of dreams doesn’t stop there. Hiker’s, bird watchers, skiers, and many types of out-door enthusiasts can have their dreams fulfilled in a remote area of the western country of Oregon called Chiloquin. This is where dreamers can find rich valleys surrounded by cascading mountains with so many activities and adventures a tourist cannot experience them all, not in one day, but expending a number of vacation days to be able to experience it all.
Thirty miles north of Klamath Falls the legendary fishing destination of the Williamson River flows into east side of Klamath Lake near historic Fort Klamath. Chiloquin is also home to the Train Mountain Railroad, a unique family destination featuring a scaled 7.5-gauge track that runs for 36 miles across more than 2,200 acres of pine forest. The Kla-Mo-Ya Casino, operated by the Klamath Tribes just south of Chiloquin, provides excitement and payouts and prizes all year round.
Train Mountain was founded in 1987 by Quentin Breen. Quentin assembled the property and developed over 25 miles of track before he passed away in 2008. In 2009 the IRS recorded $13.8 million dollars of tax liens against the Train Mountain property based on Quentin's tax problems. In 2010 a law suit was initiated by Fred Vertel to find a way to discharge the IRS liens. An August 1, 2012, Settlement Conference resulted in Friends of Train Mountain being appointed custodian of Train Mountain on November 1, 2012, with the authority to apply to the IRS to discharge the liens. A proposal was made to the IRS. Whereas if the IRS accepted the proposal, Train Mountain would be owned by Railroad Institute which planned to use the facility to provide railroad education.
