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 rafting destination.
“More nature can soothe body and soul. Today’s kids are increasingly disconnected from the natural world. Instead of spending their summer months hiking, swimming and telling stories around the campfire, children these days are more likely to attend computer camps or weight-loss camps.” – Author Richard Louv in “Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder”
