Gateway to the Klamath Region
Sandy Bar Ranch offers an inexpensive family vacation destination in one of the West Coast's most unknown vacation spots - the Klamath Region. From river rafting to swimming, hiking, biking and exploring, you'll find a range of affordable vacation ideas on and around our ranch. Nestled in a fertile valley carved out by the Klamath River, our riverside, pet friendly cabin rentals come with a full kitchen & linens, private bedroom, bathroom and a deck that looks over the river, and our organic gardens offer fresh seasonal produce, including over a hundred varieties of fruits, berries, flowers and vegetables.
Salmon season has closed, but steelhead season is just getting underway here on the Mid Klamath. Half pounders and adults have been hitting at creek mouths and favorite riffles along our stretch of river. Increased flows on the Trinity and Klamath have imporved water quality and fishing conditions tremedously. In late August, Indian tribes and environmantalists fought for and gained increased flows from the Lewiston Dam putting a pulse of fresh water into the Trinity and main stem of the Klamath and triggering a wave of salmon and steelhead in form the ocean. On September 11 releases from Iron Gate Dam were doubled from 1,000 cfs to 2100 cfs, the river here at Orleans is settling and fishing conditions are ideal.
There are two fires burning in our region, the Happy Camp Complex located 50 miles up the Klamath River, and the July Complex, which is about 50 niles to the east in the Salmon River watershed. Neither fire poses any threat to the town of Orlean; smoke is the biggest impact and varies widely depending on the weather. When the dominant up-canyon winds prevail the air is clear, often for days at a time. When the winds shift smoke is pushed downriver and effects us here at Sandy Bar Ranch. The California Smoke Blog posts the latest air quality conditions for our region. Also, please feel free to contact us at any time for an update.
