The Tree of Heaven section of the Klamath River is enjoyed by all and offers a little bit of everything for those seeking to spend a fun day on the river. Fun rapids and riffles, long deep pools for swimming and water play, relaxation, and wildlife viewing.
The Tree of Heaven run is a great introduction to river rafting and is ideal for families with young children.
Look for turtles basking on rocks, herons in a quiet stance on river’s edge, otters playing, and ospreys diving for fish. Don’t feel like paddling? Sit back and relax and bask in the warm summer sun while listening to the currents flow.
Feeling a bit more adventurous? Spice things up by requesting an inflatable kayak. Waves, riffles, and eddies provide first-time and seasoned kayakers with opportunities to hone new skills and perfect old ones. Teenagers and adults seeking a bit of adventure will love it.
What better way to spend a warm sunny day?
The Klamath is California’s second largest river. It is part of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers system. The river was named after a tribe of Modoc Indians and “Klamath” means “swiftness” in the Chinook language. The unique combination of moderate rapids, warm summer waters, superb scenery, abundant wildlife and easy camping makes the Klamath a popular family destination.
