Spring on the Klamath.

May 29 to June 1, or whenever you want to hang out.

Many moons and sun days ago my family used to camp and fish way out past the J.C. Boyle power plant on the Klamath River every Memorial weekend with 3 other families. It was a nice getaway in the spring, nobody to bother, a nice camp spot(other than being 350' above the river!), and often had deer and rockchuck sightings. About half the time, maybe a bit more, we got rain or snow, but, as is usual for east of the Cascades, most of those times it was spotty and still showed sun off and on for the weekend.
Well that tradition ceased some 10-15 years ago as life changes moved things along. I've been hoping it was still in action, so instead of my blood family, how about my ADV family?

This is a map link to the location, accessed via Hwy66/Greensprings Hwy, and my usual route is on the hydro power canal road that leads past the generation plant downstream. This is a link to the jumpoff point. https://www.google.com/maps/place?q=...15d4a6380db177

Follow along the river for ever and ever on the rock filled road till just after the major sidehill before camp. The road isn't anything you'll want a sedan or motorhome on. And it's a PITRA in a pickemup. Way too many bumps to contend with.




In order to see the road in I have to go to Earth view, GMaps isn't up to snuff so that it shows it. Or, Mapquest, since I see how to embed their map easy enough.

I want to find the log slide, and see what I think is the empty site of the mill too.

Sounds good! BTW your map link doesn't work. For me at least.

Thanks, I'll work on it tonight since figuring that out AND how to do it on the phone will fry my temper.

Looks like an interesting area. On a bluff above the river with gigantic cliffs leading to the river.

USGS maps show the area to be "mostly" National Forest. Question I would have is whether its private or public land where we would camp as your coordinates show it being in a "white" not green area.

Maybe a recon mission is in order.....

I'll find out on the recon ride, but like I said, we camped there anually and the closest "neighbors" were around 15 miles away. This is nowhere country. Logging company land owners would be most likely at issue, and there was never any sign of that back then.

That exact spot is BLM land, but on my "US Public Lands" app, I see a checkerboard of BLM/Private in that area. Handy to have that app handy when traveling to areas you aren't sure are open or not. I see most of the actual river down to the California Boarder is also on BLM land. Not that leasee's can't gate access though.
